You may not be exposing your toes because its winter, but that doesn’t mean you should ignore toenail issues. If you have nail fungus, a condition that causes yellowed, brittle, thick nails, we have a treatment method here at Cange Podiatry, Inc. that can help! While oral medications are generally prescribed since they have been shown to be historically effective at disrupting toenail fungal infections, they are not ideal as many people suffer from side effects and harmful interactions with other drugs. There is where laser therapy comes in!
This revolutionary treatment method can disrupt fungus in your toenails with precision and effectiveness using the power of laser energy directed to the tissues underneath the toenail where the fungus resides. The fungus is destroyed during this process as the laser penetrates even the thickest of toenails The advantages of this treatment are that it is not an invasive procedure, it is a relatively short procedure, and can reach the deepest parts of the affected nails without destroying the nail bed. Eventually, the damaged toenails will be replaced with healthy nails over time following this procedure.
● There are specific methods such as pulsing of the laser or using detailed wavelengths to diminish the over-heating of skin in order to avoid unnecessary pain during the procedure.
● This procedure allows for the use of nail polish and the wearing of shoes to be used without complications.
At Cange Podiatry Inc., our podiatrist, Darlyne Cange, DPM, understands that not every patient responds to the same level of treatment.
