Chicago Foot Specialists, a Chicago, IL-based podiatry practice, is happy to announce they have a new Saorsa Swift microwave therapy machine for plantar warts treatment. The Swift microwave therapy machine has a portable microwave generator for producing microwaves that are targeted towards the affected tissue to eliminate the plantar warts. The idea is to quickly increase the temperature of the affected tissue as a result of the microwaves causing the water molecules in the tissue to move rapidly resulting into heat. This rapid temperature rise stimulates the body’s immune response, which will act to get rid of the warts.
Plantar warts are also caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV), just like the other types of warts, except that they are found on the soles of the feet. This is unfortunate because pressure will often be exerted on the warts when walking, running, or doing other similar activities. This causes pain and discomfort, which is why people with plantar warts want to get rid of them. The Saorsa Swift machine offers a convenient way of eliminating the warts with minimal pain and discomfort.
The Swift protocol for eliminating plantar warts will just require three to four treatment sessions, with each session only lasting for 5 to 10 minutes. This is very convenient for both clinician and patient because a typical treatment session using other methods often lasts for one hour. The sessions are scheduled in such a way that they are four weeks apart to align the treatment with the body’s natural immune cycle. The pain and discomfort felt by the patient will only last for a few seconds for each wart while the microwave energy is actively at work on the warts. It feels like a scratch or an injection, according to most patients.
To ensure that the microwaves will not spill over to healthy tissue, the Swift machine has an applicator, which is shaped like a pen. This makes it easy for the podiatrist to point the applicator and the microwaves to the affected tissue while not affecting healthy tissue. A key benefit of using microwaves is that they will reach deep into the tissue where the wart has penetrated deep down with root-like growths. This means that there will be no need to cut through the skin, which implies that there will be no need for bandages or dressings. This allows the patient to immediately return to whatever they have been doing before the treatment.
For those who are concerned about the use of microwaves, it is important to note that microwaves have been used in medicine for more than 30 years in various countries around the world, particularly for the treatment of certain types of cancer. It is also important to note that only a small dose of microwaves is used. However, certain patients will need to inform their physician if they: are suffering from poor circulation; are immune-suppressed; have metal plates or pins in their feet; are pregnant or breastfeeding; or are wearing a pacemaker.
