Plantar Warts – TFC Podiatry
Plantar warts are notoriously hard to treat.
Plantar warts are warts on the bottom of the foot, these are more difficult to treat because of the thick skin on the bottom of the foot. They are also far more painful as we put pressure on them when we walk. With most wart treatments having success rates on the bottom of the foot under 50% after multiple treatments. This has created a need for more effective technologies and treatments. At TFC Podiatry, we have a quick and effective treatment system in house called Swift. Swift is a technology that uses microwaves to stimulate an immune response in the local area where the wart is located.
Warts are a lesion on the foot that generally appear as an area of thickened skin, they are usually painful and sometimes they have little black dots on them. Because warts look and feel like many other common lesions on the foot such as corns and callouses it is important to have an accurate diagnosis. It is important to visualise the skin underneath the callous. At TFC Podiatry, your wart will only be treated with the Swift machine if we are confident that it is a wart.
Swift hugely improves the success rate for treating warts on the foot. Both long standing warts that have so far failed treatments as well as newer warts that haven’t yet received treatments would benefit from swift treatment.
Warts of the foot are stubborn, Swift therapy is emerging as the gold standard and most effective treatment for this common viral infection. As swift is the most effective treatment for warts it has become the most common treatment that we recommend and use in our clinic.
