Wart Removal

Are you tired of dealing with pesky warts? We at Advanced Skin Clinic & Surgery are very excited to announce that we have a brand new and effective treatment for surface based skin lesions, primarily warts.

What is Swift?

Swift is a cutting edge, FDA Cleared technology that has proven to be highly effective in the removal of plantar warts. It delivers low dose microwave energy through a specialized probe that targets and effectively treats the underlying HPV virus by stimulating a natural immune response in the body. We like to say that we’re addressing the root cause; not the symptom.

What to Expect

Swift protocol involves between 3 and 4 treatments, spaced 4 weeks apart; aligning with the body’s natural immune cycle. Each treatment lasts only 5-10 minutes and is what we call a “sock off – sock on” treatment: Limited debridement, no breaking of the skin, no bandages. No home treatment is required between treatments and patients are able to resume daily activities immediately post treatment.

How effective is Swift?

The Swift technology treatment feels similar to the pain of a small scratch or injection, lasting only a few seconds before immediately subsiding. Some may experience some soreness after the treatment, but not anything strong enough to impair normal day-to-day activities.

Does it hurt?

While pain is variable and patient/lesion specific, most patients typically feel some level of discomfort as infected tissue temperatures are rapidly elevated over a 2 second dose of energy. The pain immediately subsides following cessation of energy delivery and there is very limited post procedural pain, in fact some report an immediate reduction in pain levels. All patients are about to continue on with day-to-day activities immediately following treatment.

Tan Nguyen, MD

Medicine represents a kaleidoscope of compassion and humanity, science and research. Dr. Tan Nguyen feels fortunate to have experienced and integrated these concepts into his personal and professional life.

“I want to have a solid knowledge in basic science and general medicine but ultimately, I want to use that knowledge to help my patients”, he says. “I also enjoy the interpersonal relationship that clinical medicine affords me”.

Dr. Nguyen earned his undergraduate degree and subsequently his medical degree at the University of Lausanne, Switzerland. The University of California, Irvine (UCI) then invited Dr. Nguyen to participate in some medical research as a postgraduate researcher. His work resulted in multiple articles in a variety of medical journals. After completing a residency in internal medicine at the New York University (NYU), he spent two years as a faculty member at the University of Missouri. Dr. Nguyen trained in dermatology through the American Association of Physician Specialists (AAPS) in central California. His scope of practice extends to medical, surgical, and cosmetic dermatology.

Dr. Nguyen did her residency at Baylor College of Medicine in family medicine.She returned to her roots and was a faculty member at the University of Missouri for two years.
