Microwave Therapy For Plantar Wart

Are you tired of dealing with painful and annoying plantar warts?

Brooklin Foot & Orthotic Clinic is excited to announce a new technology available to treat stubborn foot warts.

Introducing Microwave Therapy. A revolutionary new technology approved in Canada for the treatment of warts.

It uses microwave energy to rapidly elevate tissue temperature. This heat alerts your immune system to create precise, localized cell destruction. Microwave therapy is the most current, evidence-based treatment option for stubborn foot warts.

Infected tissue can exist several millimeters below the surface and can often be difficult to treat using traditional methods, resulting in either untreated tissue or significant damage.

Microwave Therapy delivers a precise, highly controlled energy dose. As microwaves travel into the tissue, water molecules begin colliding and creating localized heat energy –quickly destroying all infected tissue within a predetermined depth.

In just seconds the treatment is complete, leaving the body to absorb and replace the treated tissue.

To schedule an appointment or for more information regarding our foot care services, please call us at 905-425-3338 or fill out the below form, and we will get back to you ASAP.

Does it Hurt?

It is not uncommon for patients to feel a sharp sensation, similar to an injection. Unlike most treatments for verruca, the pain felt during the treatment quickly subsides, and only in rare cases is there any prolonged pain.

What Can I Do After Wart Treatment?

In some cases, the treated area may feel sore but will not prevent you from undertaking normal daily activities.

How Many Wart Treatments Will I Need?

This is dependent on how you respond to treatment. Typical treatment protocol includes an average of 3-5 visits with each treatment lasting only about 5-10 minutes. During each treatment, you will receive multiple 2-3 second doses of microwave energy; total dosage will vary based on the size and age of the lesion. Visits are spaced about 4 weeks apart. Complete resolution is aligned with the strength of your body’s immune response.

Can Anyone Receive This Microwave Therapy Treatment?

With a few exceptions, most people with skin lesions would be able to have this Microwave Therapy treatment. Your chiropodist will carry out an assessment before treatment and be able to advise you on this.
