If you’ve ever experienced a plantar wart on the bottom of your foot, you know it’s a lot of fun - like walking around with a sharp rock in your shoe. And left untreated, those stubborn puppies don’t generally resolve for years.

It’s the pressure from walking and standing that actually forces the insidious virus to grow into your skin.  Underneath the skin, the wart wants to take firm hold; it grows finger-like roots that reach in and grow, making them a beast to treat from the surface.

The good news.  Three Sandusky podiatrists are now offering a super sophisticated treatment to bid your wayfaring foe a “swift” adieu. 

And it’s right there in the technology’s name: SWIFT.  It’s fast.  It’s one thing that is vastly improving their patients’ satisfaction; by the time you’ve read this short paragraph, a typical Swift treatment would be complete.  

Here’s how it works.  The technology employs microwave energy to deliver a precise, highly controlled energy dose to a pre-determined depth into the skin. The latter part is crucial, and is what sets Swift apart from traditional treatments.  As microwaves travel to a pre-determined depth, they don’t break the surface of the skin and destroy tissue from the point of application – like cryotherapy, salicylic acid or laser ablation.  

What’s also different and cool about this method is, it’s an in-office procedure that requires zero anesthesia, smoke, dressings, or recovery time.  You’ll be able to pop your shoes back on and immediately resume normal activities.

Then make an appointment in Sandusky with podiatric experts, Drs. Kubitz, Liebenthal or Nida.
