Stamford CT Podiatrist Uses Saorsa Swift Wart Removal Machine for Plantar Warts Treatment

Stamford Podiatry Group, a podiatry clinic in Stamford, CT, is pleased to announce that they are using a Saorsa Swift microwave therapy machine for plantar warts treatment. This innovative therapy machine is a game changing way of treating skin conditions. It leverages the unique characteristics of microwaves to quickly increase the temperature of the affected tissue, which stimulates the natural immune system to act on the plantar warts.

Plantar warts are caused by the same virus that causes other kinds of warts but their location is on the soles of the foot, which means they can be very inconvenient because they cause pain when walking or running or when doing any activity that puts pressure on the foot. The usual over-the-counter medication for warts is mostly ineffective for plantar warts because these often develop root-like growths that go deep into the tissue. However, with the Swift therapy machine, the low dose microwave energy that it produces is able to reach deep into the affected tissue, quickly raising its temperature and activating the immune system.

The Saorsa Swift machine was developed in the UK and it has recently been approved by the FDA for use in the US. It has an applicator that is shaped like a pen, which allows the clinician to easily direct the microwaves to the affected tissue. With the ability to precisely direct the microwaves to the wart, there is less risk of affecting the healthy tissue. This applicator also has a disposable tip to avoid cross-contamination. The Swift machine has an in-built sensor that can detect if the disposable tip has not been changed, in which case it will not operate until a new tip has been placed.

Anyone with a skin condition like plantar warts is eligible for treatment with the Swift microwave therapy machine. The discomfort or pain during the treatment is minor and will only last for a few seconds when the microwave energy is acting on the affected tissue. Patients usually compared the pain to a minor scratch or injection. Each treatment session would only last for a few minutes, in contrast to the usual one-hour session.

The Swift microwave therapy machine treatment is considered to be safe because only a low dosage of microwave energy is used and the machine has been approved by the FDA. It is also important to note that microwaves have been in use in medicine for over 30 years, particularly in the treatment of various kinds of cancer, including liver, breast, lung, and kidney cancer. Microwaves have been used clinically in various countries around the world.
