Many people find they develop warts on their bodies, unsightly, fleshy protrusions that can cause embarrassment, discomfort, or both.
Even worse, they can become irritated, inflamed open wounds that do not heal, which may be a sign they’re malignant. Plantar warts are specifically located on your feet and are more painful than other warts due to the pressure on your feet.
Swift wart therapy is based on a new, FDA-approved device that uses microwave energy through its specialized probe to remove plantar warts. All warts are caused by the human papillomavirus virus (HPV), so this treatment works directly against HPV by stimulating the body’s immune response.
Swift wart therapy can improve several issues for you. For example, you may be suffering from the feeling of pebbles when you walk, or pain when there is pressure against your warts. There may be a lesion that bleeds and is painful, or there may be a yellow crust on warts.
The sensation in your feet may be faded, and this and/or discomfort might be keeping you from participating in a variety of physical activities. Many times, people try to treat these issues with other kinds of treatments, but the wart may come back or multiply. In these cases, Swift wart therapy can alleviate all of these symptoms by treating the cause - the HPV virus - that causes warts and it stops them once and for all. Your risk of malignant tumors growing on your skin will lessen and pain, discomfort, and numbness will also be corrected so you can have an improved standard of living.
If you have warts on your feet, they may not be bothering you. But if you have tried various treatments to remove them and have not experienced success, then Swift wart therapy may be the next step for you.
If you want to get rid of your warts or recurring warts, then call Gotham Footcare in New York City to schedule a consultation. This will allow the doctors to verify your eligibility, so call or email and set up your appointment today.
This outpatient procedure will occur at Gotham Footcare in the doctor’s office. There is no anesthesia necessary (not even a topical numbing agent) which further minimizes your time in-office.
You should be able to commute to and from your appointment without any pain or complications after your procedure. Your treatment should last no more than 5-10 minutes and involves no bandages or breaks in the skin. During this, the doctor will take the Swift device and place the probe on the affected area. Once done, you can pull your socks back on and go about the rest of your day.
Recovery time is extremely, well, “swift” from this treatment. You can immediately go back to your daily activities, and there is no need for any specific care once at home and between your other treatments.
You may feel minimal to no soreness, particularly depending on where your warts are or how many are treated. This sensation should lessen after each treatment as warts go down and eventually disappear. If needed, you can take over-the-counter pain relievers, particularly if your feet are covered in multiple warts and you struggle to walk on them.
Your warts will not immediately look any different. Instead, they will gradually shrink starting at the edges of the wart and moving inward. They should completely disappear after a few months, particularly once your immune system has begun to target the treatment area.
Keep in mind that this is a multi-treatment therapy. You will need to come in 3-4 times, depending on the amount and severity of your warts, with 2-4 weeks rest in-between each treatment. In this way, Swift therapy works with your body’s natural immune cycle to treat the HPV virus at the root cause of your warts.
Warts are not only uncomfortable to have, they’re uncomfortable to look at. They can get caught on items and make you feel self-conscious. They can also be a sign of a serious medical condition, especially if they are irritated or become open sores.
To find out more about Swift wart therapy New York City patients can come in for a consultation with one of the expert surgeons at Gotham Footcare. They will examine your warts and review your medical history before creating a treatment plan for you. In addition, they can provide the next step in diagnosing a more serious condition in your body. Don't hesitate to call or email for your consultation.
If you’re unhappy or uncomfortable with warts on your feet, you may want to consider Swift wart therapy. This therapy is particularly effective at treating warts that have come back and/or multiplied. In addition, if your warts are inflamed, bleeding, or painful, they may be malignant growths and need removal.
Some people may experience mild discomfort for 2-3 seconds during the procedure when the skin is heated, but this will depend on one’s skin sensitivity. Any other discomfort will subside as soon as the Swift device is removed, and no numbing is needed for this procedure. With each successive treatment, there will be less discomfort as warts begin to heal.
The price depends on the number and severity of your warts. If they are bleeding, inflamed, painful, or malignant, removal may be medically necessary. In these cases, your insurance provider should cover part or all of the cost. However, if you want your warts removed for cosmetic reasons, then this surgery is an elective procedure that will not be covered by insurance. There are financing or payment options available if needed.
