Successful Treatment of Hard Corns in Two Patients Using Microwave Energy
The authors report 2 cases of patients with persistent and painful plantar corns who underwent microwave treatment of their plantar corns with a successful, lasting reduction in pain levels after the intervention.
Treating Verruca Effectively with Microwave Energy - Are we getting warmer?
The basic science of microwave effects on skin and clinical responses noted suggest a mechanism for the observed action of microwaves in cutaneous warts
A Feasibility Study of Microwave Therapy for Precancerous Actinic Keratosis
Published in 2020 by the British Journal of Dermatology, this randomized, internally controlled feasibility study of microwave therapy for the treatment of AK was conducted at Ninewells Hospital & Medical School, Dundee, was co-sponsored by the University of Dundee and NHS Tayside, and grant funded by Innovate UK
Microwaves: A Painless, Efficient New Treatment for Plantar Warts
