Sandy OR Podiatrist Uses New Saorsa Swift Wart Removal Machine for Plantar Warts Treatment
August 14, 2023 at 18:40
Elite Foot & Ankle Associates, a podiatry practice in Sandy, OR, is pleased to announce their acquisition of a Saorsa Swift microwave therapy machine for use in plantar warts treatment. This is a groundbreaking therapy machine used for treating skin conditions. It benefits from the unique features of microwaves, particularly in quickly raising the temperature of the affected tissue, which then stimulates the natural immune system to do its work against the plantar warts—more information about this podiatry practice by visiting their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/elitefootandankleassociates.
Plantar warts are growths on the surface of the skin of the soles of the feet and just like other kinds of warts, they are due to the human papilloma virus. Thus, they are contagious and can spread from one person to another. That is why the applicator of the Swift therapy machine that is shaped like a pen to allow easy directing of the microwaves where they need to go, has a disposable tip. This tip has to be replaced with a new one for each new treatment session. This revolutionary machine, to ensure safety and prevent cross-contamination, has an in-built sensor that detects if the tip has not been replaced with a new one, in which case it will not turn on.
The Saorsa Swift machine, which was developed in the UK and was only recently approved by the FDA for use in the United States, applies a low dose of microwave energy to the affected tissue that penetrates deep inside the tissue to reach the root-like growths that support the plantar wart and make it very difficult to eradicate it using medication applied on the surface of the skin.

For those who are concerned about the Swift microwave treatment causing pain, patients have noted minor pain that they described to be similar to a minor scratch or injection. This sensation only lasts for the few seconds that the microwaves are being used. Since it only takes a few seconds to raise the temperature of the affected tissue, a treatment session with the Swift machine will only last a few minutes compared to the usual hour-long treatment session. And there will be no need for bandages or dressings, allowing the patient to return to their daily chores as if nothing happened.
For those who are concerned about the safety of the Swift microwave therapy machine, it should be noted that it has been approved by the FDA and that it only applies a low dosage of microwave energy on the affected tissue. In addition, it has been designed to make it easy to precisely direct the microwaves to avoid inadvertently directing them to healthy tissue. Furthermore, microwaves have been used in medicine for more than 30 years.
