New York Podiatrist Uses New Plantar Wart Treatment For Warts
Dr. Michael Collins of Bespoke Podiatry, a New York, NY based podiatrist, is pleased to announce the addition of a new wart removal system to the list of treatments available at his practice. The new Saorsa wart removal system provides fast, painless wart removal and reduces the likelihood of the warts returning.
Plantar warts are a common skin condition that can cause pain and discomfort on the bottom of the feet. Millions of people suffer from the condition, which is caused by a highly contagious virus called the human papillomavirus, more commonly known as HPV. The virus is spread from person to person through direct contact or shared surfaces, such as pools, gyms and locker rooms. There are a number of treatments available for the condition, and Dr. Collins’ new wart removal system is one of the most effective and non-invasive methods of wart removal on the market.
Dr. Collins uses Swift Microwave Therapy, an FDA-cleared, minimally invasive, in-office procedure that is known to be highly effective when it comes to treating warts. During the procedure, a special device delivers microwave energy directly to the wart, heating the tissue and destroying the virus, which then causes the wart to break down and the skin is left to heal naturally. The treatment is fast, safe and effective which is why it is rapidly gaining popularity among those looking to eliminate warts quickly and easily.
The treatment protocol involves 3 - 4 treatments, four weeks apart. Each treatment lasts between 5 and 10 minutes, and additional no home care is required between treatments. Patients can also resume daily activities immediately afterwards.
A study published in the Journal of Dermatologic Surgery found that Swift Microwave Therapy was effective in 95% of patients and resulted in total resolution of the warts. The treatment has also been found to be completely safe in multiple studies. Microwaves are a form of non-ionizing radiation, meaning they cannot cause damage to the DNA of living things. The technology that powers the new wart treatment therapy is also used to treat various types of cancer. The procedure is usually painless, and more sensitive patients are provided with a local anesthetic to lessen discomfort.
