There are hundreds of human papillomaviruses (HPV) that can result in the appearance of warts. Also known as verrucas, these growths can appear on any part of the body and can vary in size as well as shape. If left untreated, warts can also spread to other parts of the body and grow in size. So it is crucial to get treated as soon as you spot a growth that could be a wart.
Drs. Goldenberg, board-certified cosmetic and medical dermatologists, are first to offer patients SWIFT, an innovative microwave-based wart treatment. SWIFT is effective in the elimination of warts, growths caused by HPV, and has a lower chance of causing side-effects than other, older treatments. A low dosage of microwave energy triggers the body’s natural immune system to fight the root cause of warts – HPV virus.

The SWIFT device employs microwave energy in order to destroy warts. This FDA-approved treatment offers a convenient alternative to remove warts from any part of your body. SWIFT only takes seconds and does not require injections with anesthesia, freezing, bandages, or any aftercare.
This state-of-the-art procedure was developed after 6 years of medical research and was designed with patient satisfaction in mind. Drs. Goldenberg apply SWIFT only to the target area, leaving surrounding tissue unharmed.
Patients that undergo SWIFT wart treatment typically experience a sensation of heat in the treatment area that lasts less than 2 seconds. Once the procedure is complete, you can go back to your day-to-day activities with no downtime.
SWIFT works in a different way than traditional wart treatments, which aim to remove the wart. SWIFT stimulates the local immune system, enabling the body to clear the HPV virus. This allows for long-term effect with much lower chance that the warts will come back.
