Kill Toenail Fungus with Lasers

The weather will be warmer before you know it. It will be time to add those cute sandals and flip-flops to your daily wardrobe. You may not want to do this if your toenails are not at their best. Nail fungus—onychomycosis—is a common and difficult issue to tackle. It requires active, persistent treatment for a cure.

 

Toenail fungus can cause thick, yellow nails that look terrible, and may feel just as bad. Some sufferers spend years attempting to rid their feet of this problem. They may spend hundreds of dollars on all types of treatments only to find no relief. Toenail fungus resists most treatments, such as topical medications. Oral treatments are also known to cause other health problems, like stomach issues and liver damage. That is why laser treatment was approved by the FDA.

 

During laser treatment, a medical professional kills the fungus through use of a laser. The lasers pass through the nail to its bed. Their heat attacks the infection for an effective end to toenail fungus. The heat must be high to kill the fungus, so physicians take great care in controlling the laser’s settings. Some doctors and patients say that this method is by far the best way to treat toenail fungus with no side effects.

 

The treatment is not complex. The session is brief and there is usually no pain, or risk. A patient can resume normal activity shortly after the session. These treatments are not usually covered by insurance because they are viewed as an aesthetic procedure.
