Do you have stubborn warts that just won’t go away? We can help. We at MMG Dermatology are excited to announce that we have a brand new, effective treatment for stubborn warts that don’t respond to traditional treatments.
What is Swift?
Swift is a cutting edge, FDA Cleared technology that has proven to be highly effective in the removal of warts. It delivers low dose microwave energy through a specialized probe that targets and effectively treats the underlying virus by stimulating a natural immune response in the body. We like to say that we’re addressing the root cause; not the symptom.
Who is an Ideal Candidate?
Ideal candidates for swift treatment are patients with warts on hands or feet which have not responded to treatment or which have reoccurred.
How effective is Swift?
The Swift technology treatment feels similar to the pain of a small scratch or injection, lasting only a few seconds before immediately subsiding. Some may experience some soreness after the treatment, but not anything strong enough to impair normal day-to-day activities.
Does it hurt?
While pain is variable and patient/lesion specific, most patients typically feel some level of discomfort as infected tissue temperatures are rapidly elevated over a 2 second dose of energy. The pain immediately subsides following cessation of energy delivery and there is very limited post procedural pain, in fact some report an immediate reduction in pain levels. All patients are able to continue on with day-to-day activities immediately following treatment.
When you should come to see us?
If you have tried freezing, injections, and other traditional wart treatments without success, we would love to talk to you about Swift wart treatment. Keep an eye out for these symptoms and call us to schedule a consultation if they persist:
- A feeling of “painful pebbles”.
- A wart that has been previously treated and reoccurred
- A wart with a yellowed crusty area and/or a small black dot
- If your wart or lesion is painful, bleeding, or changing color
