The Pioneering New Microwave Therapy Device For Skin
What is Swift®?
Swift® is the pioneering new microwave therapy device for the skin. Plantar warts have long been a frustrating condition, and finally, there is an answer! Unlike other destructive treatment methods, Swift® targets the root cause of the wart/verruca, the human papillomavirus (HPV). Microwave energy is introduced into the skin, heating cells to between 36 and 43 degrees Celsius. This heat initiates an immune cascade which allows the body to detect and attack the HPV virus, ridding the patient of this painful condition.
How does the treatment work?
Generally, Swift® treatments include an average of 3 to 4 visits with each appointment only lasting 5 to10 minutes. You will receive multiple 2-second doses of microwave energy where the total amount of doses will vary based on the size and age of the lesion. Visits are spaced 4 weeks apart to coincide with the body’s immune cycle, and a follow-up appointment will be scheduled 12 weeks after the final treatment to evaluate the results. Complete resolution is aligned with the strength of your body’s immune response.
What should I expect?
Swift® is a quick and clean new treatment for the skin. Unlike cryotherapy, salicylic acid and laser, Swift® does not break the surface of the skin and eliminates the need for bandages or dressings – leaving you to carry on your day as normal.
Does it hurt?
Like many treatments for skin lesions, some minor discomfort may be experienced. Pain levels vary from person to person but most people undergoing Swift® feel a minor burning sensation lasting 2 to 3 seconds then quickly subsiding. There is no anesthesia/injection needed!
What People Are Saying
Dr. Bruce J is one of the best doctors I have seen in my life willing to educate the patient on their issue and very caring. He follows up with you and his staff is very pleasant and caring. I would recommend him to anyone, especially for any sports injuries. Thank you, Dr. Bruce and his staff.
Contacted the office and had an available appointment in 2 days. Friendly and quick service. The doctor and his staff were professional, knowledgeable, and personable. I was fortunate enough to have same day treatment with no follow up necessary; however the option was left open. I would highly recommend this location.
After nearly a year of intense foot/heel pain and several months treatment from another podiatrist, I came to Dr. Lowery. He got straight to the root cause and within 3 weeks I was over 90% improved and expect a full improvement within the next few months since I’m now wearing the recommended shoes for my condition. The office is clean, and the staff is friendly.
Love this group! Dr Lowry is such a wonderful and caring doctor! He’s patient, knowledge able and compassionate! I adore his staff as well. They make me laugh every time I go and I’ve always seen them test patients with the utmost respect. Love these guys!
