Treating Warts with Swift Therapy
When you come into one of our offices, your podiatrist will examine the wart and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.
Recently, Swift Therapy has been developed to help combat warts. Unlike other treatments, Swift Therapy for Plantar Warts works by killing the virus on the inside, rather than external efforts to remove the warts.
The treatment works by using microwave energy to activate the immune response in your feet so that your body starts to attack the wart virus and get rid of them. In usual circumstances, it can take years for the immune system to act against warts, given their location, so this therapy helps rush the process.
Swift Therapy is $250 per session and available at our Joliet office. We usually recommend 3 treatments, but we have seen it take anywhere from 1-4 completed treatments. The microwaves are emitted for about two to three seconds per wart. While the procedure might be mildly uncomfortable for the duration of the microwave emission (like a sharp needle scratch), the overall treatment is not painful.
Many patients report seeing a notable reduction in their plantar warts after the first session.

Remember, if one treatment doesn’t work, our team will try something else. As long as the treatments are performed by a professional, you should experience limited side effects and successfully get rid of the wart.
