Have you had a long standing plantar wart on your foot that just won’t go away? Have you tried a heap of different treatments with no success? If this sounds like you, be sure to read this blog to find out about an innovative treatment for plantar warts!
I know that plantar warts (or verruca as those from the Northern Hemisphere often call them) on the sole of your feet can be really painful. And they remind you that they are sore with every step that you take.
You have probably tried all sorts of different treatments too. From at home remedies where you are painting things on daily, or even had chemicals applied at the podiatrist or had it frozen at the doctors. But it just wont go away.
The problem with warts is that they are clever little viruses that are living in your skin. They manage to avoid upsetting the immune system, so the immune system doesn’t kick in and kick the wart out. So, you can end up stuck with it for long periods of time.
Here at Feetology, we have the latest technology in wart treatment, the Swift Microwave Generator. It is a new treatment that is designed to stimulate the immune system to help it clear the wart. It has been showing a high 83 % success rate and unlike other treatments, there are no needles, no messing around with ointments and bandages and no long, painful applications of freezing. There can be some short lived discomfort during treatment, but there is generally no pain or after care required between visits.
How does it work?
Swift uses microwaves to treat the wart. These microwaves heats up the skin and wart tissue to a very specific temperature that then stimulates the body’s natural immune response. The immune system then starts to fight the virus causing the wart.
Treatment with microwaves is safe, with the microwaves only penetrating to a predetermined depth with no spread into the surrounding tissue. This therapy is not about destroying the wart like cryotherapy (freezing) or the use of acids.
Is it painful?
A little discomfort is felt during treatment. But it is short lived. As mentioned above, we are heating the wart tissue for a short period of time. This can be uncomfortable, but as soon as treatment stops, the discomfort resolves. This differs from other destructive treatments that can leave painful blisters or sores after treatment.
How long does treatment take?
This will vary from person to person, but most people will resolve with 3 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart. Sometimes, more treatments are required for particularly stubborn warts.
