Over the past year our clinic has been offering an exciting alternative to traditional plantar wart treatments. Introducing SWIFT® Microwave Therapy for Warts!
SWIFT® uses microwave energy to rapidly elevate tissue temperature at the site of infection and create precise, localised cell destruction.
Each treatment is just seconds long and the patient is not left with painful blisters or scars to deal with after treatment.
We are proud to be the first Podiatry Clinic in BC to offer SWIFT® Microwave Therapy for Warts as an alternative treatment for our patients and couldn't be happier with the results.
SWIFT® is a revolutionary new technology, which has been approved in Canada for the treatment of warts. SWIFT® uses microwave energy which is delivered through a special probe applied to the skin to treat the affected tissue(s).
SWIFT® delivers a precise, highly controlled energy dose several millimetres below the surface of the skin. Microwave energy travels into the tissue causing water molecules to collide and rapidly elevate tissue temperature. This heat creates precise, localised cell destruction. It is recommended to have 1 to 4 treatment sessions, with some patients seeing early results after just one treatment.
