Podiatrist in Wake Forest NC Offers Advanced Wart Treatment for Plantar Warts

December 13, 2022 at 22:50

Wake Foot and Ankle Center, a podiatry clinic in Wake Forest, NC, is happy to announce that they have a new Saorsa Swift microwave therapy machine for the advanced treatment of plantar warts. This cutting edge wart treatment device applies a small dose of microwave energy that is directed towards the affected area with the effect of quickly raising its temperature, which in turn activates the natural immune response that will then eliminate the wart. The Swift machine produces microwaves by using a compact generator that is provided with a simple user interface to allow fast treatment set up. This machine is one of the first energy based systems that are really portable since it just weighs 4.5kg or around 10lbs.

Michael Hodos DPM, podiatrist at Wake Foot and Ankle Center, says, “Plantar warts are warts that develop on the soles of your feet. Plantar warts are usually located on weight-bearing areas of your feet and cause pain when you walk or apply pressure to your feet. Plantar warts can affect your posture and the way you walk, leading to complications with your muscles and joints. Plantar warts are frequently spread through contact with moist, public environments like swimming pools and locker rooms. For some, warts may clear up on their own without treatment. But without treatment, warts can take up to two years to clear up. During this time, they typically recur and spread to other areas. The goal of treatment is to destroy the wart and allow your skin to return to normal.”

The Swift microwave therapy machine may help in eliminating the plantar warts much faster. The low dose of microwave energy penetrates deep into the affected tissue and this causes its temperature to rise quickly, which stimulates the body’s natural immune response to act on the warts. The Saorsa Swift microwave therapy machine has been observed to be very effective against plantar warts. In addition, it is considered to be a safe treatment because only a small dose of microwave energy is used and this is focused on the affected area. Nevertheless, some patients who have certain conditions are advised to consult first with a physician if they want to get the treatment. These include: those who are immune-suppressed; those who have a pacemaker; women who are pregnant or breastfeeding; those who have conditions that affect the capability of the body to heal; those who are suffering from poor circulation; and people who have metal plates or pins in their feet.

The Saorsa Swift microwave therapy machine is much faster than other treatments because of the use of microwave energy. A highly controlled and precise energy dose to a pre-determined depth into the skin. Because of this, there is a break on the surface of the skin and damaged tissue at the point of application, which is typical with other treatments like salicylic acid, cryotherapy, or laser ablation. Microwaves work only within that defined field, causing the water molecules within the tissue to move quickly causing localized heat energy due to the friction. Because there is no break on the skin surface, there are no bandages or dressings needed after the procedure.
