Say Goodbye to Plantar Warts With Our Breakthrough Noninvasive Swift Treatment

Plantar warts are a common nuisance that are quick to spread and tricky to treat. If you have a wart, read on to see how our breakthrough noninvasive Swift® treatment can help you say goodbye to warts for good.

Plantar warts are small growths that appear on the soles of your feet. They're caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) and can be painful and unsightly. 

Plantar warts are one of the most common skin lesions, and unfortunately, they also have a high resistance to treatment. Traditional treatments often involve painful procedures like freezing or burning the wart off, which can leave you sidelined for days or even weeks. 

If you’re tired of dealing with plantar warts, you’re not alone — our providers are here to help. Say goodbye to stubborn plantar warts with our breakthrough Swift® treatment here at NYC Foot & Ankle Center in the Manhattan Valley neighborhood of the Upper West Side.

What is Swift treatment for plantar warts?

Swift treatment is a game-changer when it comes to treating plantar warts. That’s because it doesn’t rely on any of the traditional wart removal techniques like cryotherapy or salicylic acid.

Instead, Swift treatment uses microwave energy. After cleansing and numbing the treatment area, your NYC Foot & Ankle Center provider delivers precise microwave energy directly to the affected area and targets the virus at its source. 

How does Swift treatment address plantar warts?

Swift treatment works by delivering a series of low-energy microwave pulses to your wart. These pulses target the virus itself but they also heat the tissue and stimulate your body's immune response to fight off the virus. 

Unlike other treatments that only target the surface of your wart, the microwave energy penetrates deep into your tissues for a more effective result.

Benefit of Swift treatment for warts

You might consider this treatment because:

It’s noninvasive

With Swift treatment, you can say goodbye to lengthy procedures and uncomfortable recovery times. This noninvasive approach means no needles, no scalpels, and no downtime.

It’s fast

The treatment takes only about 30-45 minutes, and then you’re free to resume your normal activities immediately after your procedure. 

It’s effective

Plantar warts can cause pain, especially when you put weight on your foot as you walk. Warts can also cause skin discoloration, bleeding, and visible bumps.

According to research published in the Journal of Foot and Ankle Research, about 83% of warts resolve with Swift treatment. This is much better than the common salicylic acid which has a cure rate of only about 50-70%.

It’s gentle

Unlike traditional treatments that can cause scarring or infection, Swift treatment is gentle on your skin with minimal risk of side effects.
