SWIFT® for Warts
WHAT IS SWIFT®? Microwave Therapy For Warts & Skin Lesions. Swift is a new technology, developed in the UK, which has been licenced for the general treatment of skin lesions in Podiatry and Dermatology. Swift uses microwave energy which is delivered through a special probe applied to the skin to treat the affected tissue.
DOES IT HURT? Like many treatments for skin lesions, some minor discomfort may be experienced. Before treatment your podiatrist or dermatologist may decide to reduce the lesion with a blade. Pain levels vary from person to person but most people undergoing Swift liken it to a pain similar to an injection or a scratch, lasting 2 - 3 seconds then quickly subsiding.
WHAT CAN I DO AFTER TREATMENT? In some cases the treated area may feel sore but will not prevent you undertaking normal daily activities.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED? This is dependent on how you respond to treatment. In some cases, you may need more than one treatment (these can be from 14 days to over a month apart depending on the response). Your Podiatrist or Dermatologist will be able to discuss this with you.
CAN ANYONE RECEIVE THIS TREATMENT? With a few exceptions, most people with skin lesions would be able to have this treatment. Your Podiatrist or Dermatologist will carry out an assessment prior to treatment and be able to advise you on this. Please contact our practice, Park 56 Podiatry for more information.
Fat Foot Grafting
Foot fat grafting is an advanced procedure in which natural fat is harvested from another body area, then purified, and injected into various areas of the feet to restore volume and minimize pain from fat loss. Dr. Nadia Levy, board-certified podiatrist, works in concert with Dr. Darren Smith, a board-certified plastic surgeon. Since only a small amount of fat is required, the procedure is often under one hour and can even be performed under local anesthesia. There is also minimal pain associated with the procedure.
