NEW Fungal Nail Laser Therapy
Fungal nail infection
is a common foot infection causing yellow, thick, scaly and foul
smelling nails. Fungus can be picked up anywhere and it has a tendency
to spread quickly. Considering that the infection is mostly in the nail bed underneath the nail plate, it is typically hard to get rid of this infection. Up until now, the only treatment choices consisted of oral and topical medications.
Oral antifungal medications can cause permanent liver and kidney damage. What’s more, they require regular blood tests to monitor any unwanted side effects. Topical medications require regular nail debridement followed with daily application of antifungal medications. Depending on the severity of the infection, it can be a long process to see any changes.
Laser therapy is the fastest and most advanced way
to treat a
fungal nail infection.
With laser treatment, there are no side effects, no age limitations and the success rate
is over 80%. The laser is so sophisticated that it can detect and reach the proper target
temperature leading to elimination of the nail fungus without harming healthy tissue or the
nail bed. Laser treatment does not cause any pain or discomfort and patients are able to return
to their regular activities immediately after treatment.
Patients should notice results within 2 to 4 months, depending on how quickly their toenails grow. New, clear growth begins to appear along the bottom of the nail as the diseased portion of the nail grows out. On average, it takes 8 to 12 months for the nail to completely grow out.
