Treatment of Nail Infections

Until recently, there have only been 2 options available for fungus in the toenails.  One of these is topical preparations that need to be painted onto the nails daily.  Most of these remedies can take up to a year of nail application to see improvement. The second option is oral antifungal pills.  These can have potentially dangerous side effects and it is recommended that your liver and kidney function be tested (blood test) while you are taking them.

Lasers offer a revolutionary way to treat fungal nail infections.  Specialized lasers can effectively and efficiently rid you of ugly, unsightly toenail fungus in as little as one treatment, depending on the severity of the condition.  This is a quick in-office procedure that is virtually painless – you may feel a gentle warming or tingling as the laser works.   The laser is so sophisticated that it can detect and reach the proper target temperature leading to elimination of the toenail fungus. At the same time, the nail bed is stimulated to produce collagen, resulting in healthier, stronger nails.
