December 14, 2022 at 16:53
Grand Island Dermatology, a dermatology clinic in Grand Island, NE, is happy to announce that they have recently acquired a Saorsa Swift microwave therapy machine that can be used for warts treatment. The Swift machine has a portable microwave generator for creating the microwaves that are directed towards the warts. Low dose microwave energy is directed at the affected area and this causes the tissue temperature to rise rapidly, which in turn stimulates the body’s immune response. This is a desirable treatment because warts can be painful and can negatively affect a person’s quality of life. Warts on the feet (plantar warts) are frequently painful because they are located on the soles of the feet and therefore they are often pressed when one is walking, running, or doing activities where force is exerted on the soles of the feet. Meanwhile, more information about the practice can be obtained by visiting their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/gidermatology/.
An important advantage of the Saorsa swift machine is that it can be accurately focused on the affected area. This avoids causing damage to healthy tissue and furthermore, the machine is provided with a safety mechanism. It has an applicator, which is shaped like a wand to allow the dermatologist to direct the microwaves to where they are needed accurately. There is no break on the skin after a treatment session with the Swift machine, the patient will not need any bandages or dressing and can immediately return to regular activities.
For those who are worried about the use of microwaves, The Swift microwave therapy machine is considered to be a safe treatment because only a low dose of microwaves is used and microwaves have been in use in medicine for a long time. Nevertheless, some patients have to be careful, including: those who have metal plates or pins in their feet; patients suffering from poor circulation; patients suffering from conditions that affect the capability of the body to heal; those who are immune-suppressed; women who are pregnant or breastfeeding; and those who are wearing a pacemaker.
