Swift® is proven to be the best treatment for unsightly, infectious warts!
The struggle is real
Warts are caused by an infection of the Human Papilloma Virus. Older therapies include freezing (cryosurgery), topical medications (chemosurgery), painful laser treatments and excision. Despite all these treatments, warts have a high recurrence rate and can return.
Millions of people struggle with unsightly, infectious warts on the foot.
Treatments are time consuming, requiring numerous visits and involve the hassle of daily topical medicines. By the time patients have come to see us, they’ve seen their family Doctor and a Dermatologist.
The Frustration Zone
Patients who have warts on the foot experience pain while walking and exercising that gets in the way of their life. Research shows that infections of HPV (human papilloma virus) can become pre-cancerous or malignant if left untreated.
Warts should be eliminated, not ignored.
