Plantar Wart Treatment NYC
Are you tired of dealing with pesky warts? Dr. Isaacson and his team in NYC now have a brand new and effective treatment, Swift Technology, that is used not only to treat but also prevent verrucae, or plantar warts. Plantar warts are a common foot issue that can be embarrassing and difficult to conceal. Usually patients see these types of warts on the bottom of their feet or on the balls of their heels. If you have been looking for a podiatrist in NYC to treat your plantar warts, visit Dr. Isaacson for the new Swift Technology treatment.
What is Swift?
Swift is a cutting edge licensed technology that has proven to be successful in the removal of plantar warts. It utilizes microwave energy through a specialized probe to target and effectively treat the affected tissues. Depending on the patient, Swift can treat plantar warts in only 2-3 treatments. Each treatment is typically performed within 4 weeks of each other.
Does it hurt?
The Swift technology treatment feels similar to the pain of a small scratch or injection, lasting only a few seconds before quickly subsiding. Some may experience some soreness after the treatment, but not anything strong enough to impair normal day-to-day activities.
What is a plantar wart?
Verrucae warts, or plantar warts are caused by HPV (human papillomavirus). This virus attacks the skin on the bottom of the feet. HPV is developed from direct contact and can be contracted easily through breaks or cracks in the skin. The HPV virus thrives in damp, moist environments such as locker room floors, puddles, and swimming pool tiles. Plantar warts are mostly circular in shape and can be either darker or lighter than the surrounding skin and will usually cause tenderness or pain.
When is it time to see a podiatrist in NYC?
It’s important to visit a podiatrist if you feel you have a plantar wart and are seeking removal. Here are some symptoms to look out for:
- The lesion on your foot is painful, bleeding, or has changed color.
- Treatments you have tried do not work, and the wart reoccurs or multiplies.
- Discomfort that prevents you from doing regular activities.
- You have diabetes.
- Poor sensation in your feet.
- Weakened immune system due to an immune system disorder or immune-suppressing drugs.
- You are unsure if the lesion is a wart.

About The Swift System
Resolution and patient experience are the main highlights that separate Swift from other methods of verrucae treatment. The speed of the Swift treatment is where patients are most impressed. Plantar warts show little signs of weakness, making them a daily nuisance. Swift attacks the verrucae at its core, using state-of-the-art microwave technology. Typically lasting only five seconds, the microwave energy passes safely through the layers of skin, generating heat inside the wart, treating the infected tissue. This triggers the bodies’ immune response, indicating that it needs to fight the infected virus.
