What is Toenail Fungus (onychomycosis)?
Toenail fungus is a common nail infection that can cause the toenails to thicken and take on a yellowish or cloudy appearance. Anyone can suffer from toenail fungus, but family history, increased age, generally poor health, nail damage, tight shoes, and warm, moist areas can be contributing factors. Toenail fungus can cause pain and can eventually cause permanent nail deformities that might interfere with sports, walking, and even wearing certain shoes. Kesler Podiatry provides laser toenail fungus treatment to our friends and neighbors in Wayne as well as Pompton Lakes, Franklin Lakes, Oakland, NJ, Wyckoff, Fair Lawn, Midland Park, North Haledon, West Caldwell, and Paterson.
Symptoms of Toenail Fungus
- Yellow or white streaks or spots under the nail, on the nail bed, or under the nail
- Thick, brittle, crumbly nails that easily break
- Discolored nails that might separate from the nail bed
- Buildup of skin and nail fragments under toenails
- A soft, powdery nail surface as the infection worsens
How Can I Treat Toenail Fungus?
Treatment of Onychomycosis (Toenail Fungus) is challenging because the infection occurs deep within the nail bed and is difficult to reach. Traditional drug-based toenail fungus treatments are relatively ineffective, and repeated toenail fungus re-infection is also common. Oral medications have side effects that can cause liver damage.
What is Laser Toenail Fungus Treatment?
The “Laser therapy” is a specially designed patented device that shines through your toenails and vaporizes the toenail fungus embedded in your nail plate, without causing damage to the nail or the surrounding tissue.
Is Laser Toenail Fungus Treatment painful?
No, it is a gentle procedure – you may feel warmth in the nails as the treatment is administered, but there is no pain. Laser Therapy for toenail fungus has shown to be 80% effective. The toenail does not become clear instantly, but healthy new growth will be visible within 3 months and the toenail will replace itself in 6 – 9 months. There are no contraindications for laser toenail fungus treatment – it is safe for everyone and has shown no adverse reactions in any clinical studies.
What is required and involved?
- No anesthesia
- No toxic medication, thus no side effects
- No recovery time
- No surgery or pain
