Plantar warts are characterized by small, fleshy growths on the bottom of the foot, which may be rough or grainy. These warts cause hard, thickened skin where a wart has grown inward and produce black pinpoints in the center of the growth, which are clotted blood vessels. They are caused by HPV, when the virus enters the human body through tiny cuts, breaks or other weak spots on the bottom of the feet. The virus thrives in warm and moist environments, making locker rooms and swimming pools a common source of infection. Other risk factors include having had prior warts and poor immune function.
While they are not often a serious health concern and will eventually go away without treatment, they can actually be quite painful when pressure is applied, affecting walking and day to day function. Waiting for them to disappear on their own may take time, as South Coast Foot and Ankle Associates points out that it can even take up to a few years. People who are dealing with plantar warts will either have to try self-care methods or see a podiatrist to have the warts removed. However, traditional methods for removing plantar warts can be quite involved. Salicylic acid, cryotherapy, chemo-based fluorouracil or bleomycin and surgical removal — the most common methods for removing plantar warts traditionally — are all painful and invasive, and require multiple sessions to complete.
This is where Saorsa’s SWIFT alternative comes in. The SWIFT method has established itself as a very reliable and effective way to deal with plantar warts. Using state-of-the-art technology to deliver precise, highly controlled microwave energy into the problem area of the skin, the SWIFT method stimulates the patient’s body into a healing response and treats plantar warts at their source, often with little to no recovery time.
This microwave energy does not break the surface of the skin, and instead penetrates the tissue to a predetermined depth, ensuring there is minimal debridement. This makes the procedure quick (with sessions lasting between 5 to 10 minutes) and virtually painless, affording patients a clean and non-invasive process that has practically no recovery time.
Dr. Steve Eng from South Coast Foot and Ankle Associates says, “If you have dealt with plantar warts before and had to have them treated, you know how much of a process it can be. With SWIFT, there is no worry about any of that. You can just walk into your podiatrist’s office and walk out half an hour later, fully free of your plantar warts. Feel free to get in touch with us or drop by our offices, and we would be glad to help you.”
