Swift: A Break-Through treatment for Plantar Warts

A state-of-the-art device uses patient’s own immune system to get rid of plantar warts – now available at the Foot and Ankle Center of Lake City

Seattle, WA, United States – Like most people, you’ve probably had uncomfortable and embarrassing foot warts at least once in your life. While foot warts or plantar warts are common, they can be difficult and painful to treat. Plantar warts can also prevent you from participating in your favorite physical activities.

Many treatments for plantar warts aren’t very successful. In addition, they require you to stay off your feet while they heal. Fortunately, a better way to treat plantar warts is now available in Seattle. The Foot and Ankle Center of Lake City is the first office in Seattle to use ‘Swift’, a state-of-the-art device to treat sore and irritating plantar warts.

The Foot and Lake Center of Lake City is an esteemed podiatry clinic that caters to patients from Seattle, Shoreline, Mountlake Terrace, Everett, Lake Forest Park, Edmonds, and Bothell. Dr. Rion Berg, the owner of the clinic, has been treating patients with all kinds of foot ailments for over 40 years. He’s now ready to treat your warts and those of your family using this break-through treatment.

How It Works

Swift employs a simple method to treat plantar warts. Instead of destroying the wart and surrounding skin, it targets the cause of warts – HPV or Human Papilloma Virus. Low-powered microwave energy heats up water molecules around the wart, exposing it to the patient’s immune system. This allows the immune system to recognize the virus as foreign and destroy it. Once it’s destroyed, the wart eventually vanishes.

How Swift Compares to Other Treatment Methods

Previously chemicals and cryotherapy were used to treat warts. Swift has numerous advantages over these other methods. While chemicals and cryotherapy are extremely painful procedures, Swift is comparatively painless — it is sharp and short (3-4 secs). Traditional methods break the skin and are prone to creating wounds and scars, whereas Swift keeps the skin intact. As a result, there are no wounds or scars with this method. Treatment using Swift is quick. The treatments last for 3 to 4 seconds with visits of less than 15 minutes. Microwaves have low penetrating power, only travelling 3 mm into the skin. This makes Swift treatment safe for individuals of all ages and health. 

Swift’s Success Rate

Swift’s success rate in treating warts is far superior to older methods; 85% vs 30% respectively. The recurrence rate with Swift is less than 1%, while older methods are as high as 20%.

Given its high success rate, reduced pain, and no healing time, Swift treatment is the treatment of choice for many patients with plantar warts.
