What Is Toenail Fungus?
Toenail fungus is an infection where the fungus lives in the cracks and pores of the nail. What causes the fungus to grow is digging it. Digging makes the fungus spread across the toenail.
Our laser treatment will target the infected areas, causing the old infected nail to be replaced by a new healthy nail. The laser toenail fungus treatment is relatively painless because the fungus has already killed the toenail. During treatment patients will experience a warm sensation.
After the treatment, if the nail isn’t exposed to other infected nails or fungus ridden areas. Laser treatments can be up to 80% effective. In comparison, creams and other oral treatments for fungus have only shown between 10-50% effectiveness.
Cosmetic treatments also have many health risks, like the possibility of kidney or liver failure. Laser treatment has proven to have no dangerous side effects.
Laser treatment removes the fungus. However, it is not a permanent cure. Lifestyle changes can cure the embarrassing fungus. It is advised to keep your feet clean and tidy, among other home remedies.
Laser treatment may be the solution to clear up that fungus.
The laser toenail fungus treatment targets the fungal infection using the CosMed Nd: YAG Laser. The laser will target the infection beneath the toenail area called the toenail matrix.
It takes about 10-15 minutes per treatment. Treatments are spaced approximately 30 days apart and require between 2-4 treatments. The laser treatment targets only the infected area(s) and leaves the nail and nail-bed unharmed.
Generally, there are no health or age restrictions with laser treatment. In most clinical studies there were no side effects involving the laser treatment of toenail fungus. Medications that are used for fungal infection carry the possibility of kidney problems. However laser treatment does not. There is no downtime with this form of treatment.
The cost of laser toenail fungus treatment will range based on the severity of the infection and the number of toes infected. Please feel free to call us for a free consultation. We are happy to sit down and answer any questions or concerns.
Treating the toenail fungus does not mean you will not get it again. The fungus can enter the nail through an injury or crack in the nail or a cut around the cuticle. Avoid wet, moist environments, such as public showers, locker rooms, public pool areas and other areas where your feet are exposed to unsanitary conditions.
You will need to practice good foot hygiene. Make sure that you wash and sanitize your sheets and bedding often at home. Check your showers and bath areas, including the bath mat. These can be areas that can cause reinfection.
Be cautious when you get pedicures. You should avoid trimming cuticles too short. This provides an area for the fungus to infect once again. Remember to check your shoes and replace them often. Fungus can be thriving in those old sneakers. Always make sure to keep your shoes dry and sanitize them frequently.
