What is Swift Microwave Therapy?
Swift is a new licensed technology, proven to be successful in the removal of skin lesions, such as plantar warts. It utilizes microwave energy through a specialized probe to target and effectively treat affected tissues. Depending on how an individual’s warts respond to the treatment, Swift will resolve skin lesions in just 2-3 treatments. Each treatment is typically recommended to be within 4-week gaps of each other. To find out if Swift Wart Treatment is right for you, Dr. Hochstein will give you a full assessment to determine what the next steps for you should be.
Does Swift Verruca Treatment Hurt?
The Swift Wart Treatment is said to be similar to the pain one would feel from a small scratch or injection. Any minor amount of pain the patient may feel should only last for a few seconds before quickly subsiding. Some patients may experience feelings of soreness after the treatment, but it should not be strong enough to impair their normal day-to-day activities. If you do wind up experiencing more pain then you initially anticipated, contact our staff right away!
Is Swift Verruca Treatment Safe?
Typically lasting five seconds, the microwave energy passes safely through the skin layers, generating heat inside the verrucae that treat the infected tissue. By doing so, swift wart treatment triggers the bodies’ immune response, indicating that it needs to fight the infected virus.
Does Swift Verruca Treatment Work?
Resolution and patient experience are the primary highlights that separate Swift from other methods of treatment. Essentially, the speed of the treatment is where patients have been giving positive feedback. The verrucae show little signs of weakness, making the virus a daily nuisance. Swift attacks the verrucae at its heart, using state-of-the-art microwave technology.

How To Identify A Plantar Wart
Although they are not life-threatening, the development of plantar warts can be an aesthetic issue. The longer they are left to linger, the harder they are to be removed. Our team at Great Neck Family Foot Care wants our patients to be able to identify the development of plantar warts from the onslaught. For information on what you should be looking for, continue reading.
Conditions That Cause Plantar Warts
Before we dive into how to identify a plantar wart, you must be aware of what can cause them. By avoiding scenarios where warts can thrive, you’ll be taking a big step in preventing them from affecting you in any way. These scenarios include:
- Coming into contact with warts.
- Biting your fingernails, which can cause cracks in the skin where warts can form.
- Using foot care products that have come in contact with warts.
Identifying A Plantar Wart
There are many different types of warts a person can suffer from. They are mostly very contagious, meaning if you develop one and begin to pick at it, warts can spread to other parts of your body. That is why getting prompt treatment is so important. Symptoms that point to the development of warts include:
- Fleshy, grainy bumps.
- Bumps that are rough to the touch.
- Growths that have black pinpoint dots on the top.

What Happens to a Plantar Wart if Left Untreated?
Have you recently begun to develop a plantar wart? If you’ve been thinking about leaving it unchecked in hopes that it will go away on its own, you’re likely making a mistake. At Great Neck Family Foot Care, our team knows the issues that can come from doing this. To learn more about what can happen if you leave a plantar wart untreated, continue reading.
What Is a Plantar Wart?
Before diving into what can happen if it is left untreated, Dr. Hochstein, our expert podiatrist, would like to provide more information on what a plantar wart actually is. A plantar wart is a small growth that typically occurs on your heels. This growth develops when the HPV virus finds a way to enter your skin. Concerning the growth, additional symptoms that point to the development of a plantar wart include:
- Hard, thickened skin that forms over a “well-defined” spot on the foot.
- Black pinpoints that look like seeds in the middle of the growth.
- Suffering from pain on your heel when walking or standing.
When Left Unchecked:
As previously stated, leaving a plantar wart untreated can lead to serious issues. Plantar warts are highly contagious. Once one develops, if left unchecked, it can quickly spread to other parts of your foot. Soon, you’ll have multiple warts to deal with instead of just one. Additionally, the warts or area around them may become infected, leading to serious issues.
Treatment For Plantar Warts:
Here at Great Neck Family Foot Care, our team is well versed in dealing with issues such as plantar warts. Our podiatrist Dr. Hochstein can perform a full evaluation on your foot to help determine which intervention method will yield the best results. Depending on the severity of your plantar wart, treatment methods can include:
- Prescription-strength wart peeling medication.
- Cryotherapy to freeze the wart.
- Laser treatment.
- Swift Technology.
- In severe cases, surgery.
While you may only view plantar warts as an aesthetic issue, that is no excuse to let one linger. A failure to receive prompt treatment can lead to more warts forming or more serious issues taking place. To make sure you avoid this from happening, contact Dr. Hochstein here at Great Neck Family Foot Care today.
