Laser Fungal Nail Treatment is the way of the future, at least when it comes to fungal nail treatment! You’re actually in luck, because we offer the best form of this service at our offices. We can use it to treat your yellowed toenails caused by the onychomycosis fungus.
Laser treatment can clear the infected nail and do so without the discomfort associated with other procedures. It works by using light rays that are directed at the nail to penetrate it and thereafter destroy any fungus. There’s also no damage to other parts of the of the toenail since it only targets the infected portions. It’s important to understand that fungi thrive in moist, dark places. Elderly individuals are more likely to have toenail fungus since their toes have been exposed to fungus for longer amounts of time and tend to also have weaker immune responses.
Laser treatment is available to those of all ages. Since they can get significantly worse if left untreated, it is very important to get treatment as early as possible. One of the main benefits of this treatment is the avoidance of invasive surgical procedures that can require long recovery times and potential infections.
Other helpful points:
● There are generally no side effects such as those associated with surgery. This also means that the use of anesthetics is moot and you can get back to your routine immediately.
● The nails become clear for majority of patients.
● There is no restriction with wearing shoes or nail polishes.
