Fungal Nail Characteristics

We are experts in the treatment of toenail fungus through the use of laser therapy. Toenail fungus, medically known as onychomycosis, is a very common infection of the nail. Initially, toenail fungus may present as white spots on the nail or black spots beneath the nail. Ridges will typically start to form, and the nail will seem rougher to the touch. As the infection progresses, the nail may thicken and become brittle, discolored, or misshapen. The growing fungus separates the layers of keratin in the toenail, which leads to the characteristic distorted look.

How the Laser Treatment Works

Toenail fungus is notoriously difficult to cure with over-the-counter medicines. From foot soaks to ointments, the efficacy of such treatments is extremely varied. Our practice, however, offers advanced laser technology using the PinPointe FootLaser to clear toenail fungus. Laser treatment itself involves the delivery of pulsed laser energy to the targeted area of the nail and/or skin, where it passes through and is absorbed to reach the fungus. Laser treatment for fungal nails is safe, virtually painless, comfortable, and effective. The procedure itself takes only about 30 minutes to complete and has minimal side effects.
