Large multiple plantar warts
After Swift Microwave Therapy
Common TreatmentsWarts are a virus and just like the common cold, the body’s immune system will take care of it in time. However, in the case of plantar warts, the warts frequently become painful, increase in size, multiply and spread to other people and are difficult to treat in adults.
Current Common Treatments
- Waiting: Warts may spread or become painful.
- Chemical cauterization: 6-8 treatments, salicylic acid, dressing kept dry.
- Cryotherapy(freezing): painful, often multiple treatments, risk of scarring and spreading.
- Surgery with curettage: requires a local anaesthetic, risk of scarring and regrowth
How Does Swift Microwave Work?Swift Microwave Therapy is designed to promote your local immune response and for the body to heal itself. Swift treatment results in a degree of localised tissue stress promoting a healing response, recruiting antibodies and stimulates a heat shock protein production, which is known to prompt a strong healing process. So, if you are in pain, embarrassed by your stubborn Plantar Warts and just sick of applying over the counter acids, please consider Woodlands Podiatry and Glengarry Podiatry for a better more effective treatment.
