What is SWIFT Therapy for Wart Removal?

If you have a wart on your foot, you may be considering various treatment options for wart removal. One option that you may have heard of is SWIFT Therapy.

What is SWIFT Therapy?

SWIFT Therapy is a relatively new, minimally invasive treatment for warts on the foot. It involves a handheld device that delivers a combination of radiofrequency (RF) energy and heat to the wart. This treatment is designed to destroy the HPV (human papillomavirus) that causes warts and stimulate the body’s immune response to help get rid of the wart.

Benefits of SWIFT Therapy for Wart Removal

  • It is relatively quick. The treatment typically takes less than 15 minutes and the frequency of treatments may vary depending on your individual response to treatment. Your podiatrist will be able to discuss the treatment plan with you, which may involve multiple treatments spaced anywhere from two weeks to a month apart.
  • It has a high success rate. In clinical studies, SWIFT Therapy has been shown to be effective in getting rid of warts in more than 70% of cases. Compared to other treatments such as cryotherapy and topical medications, this treatment significantly more effective while being faster and more comfortable.

It’s worth noting that SWIFT Therapy is not suitable for everyone.  It may not be as effective for large or deeply rooted warts, and in these cases, other treatments such as surgical removal may be necessary.
