What is Toenail Fungus (onychomycosis)?
Toenail fungus is a common nail infection that can cause the toenails to thicken and take on a cloudy, yellowish appearance. Anyone can suffer from toenail fungus, but increased age, family history, nail damage, generally poor health, tight shoes, and warm, moist areas can be contributing factors. Toenail fungus can cause pain and can eventually, permanent nail deformities that might interfere with walking, sports, and even wearing some types of shoes. Kesler Podiatry provides laser toenail fungus treatment to our friends and neighbors in Hawthorne as well as Fair Lawn, Pompton Lakes, Paterson, Franklin Lakes, Oakland, NJ, Wyckoff, North Haledon, Midland Park, and West Caldwell.
Symptoms of Toenail Fungus
- Yellow or white streaks or spots under the nail or on the nail bed
- Thick, crumbly, brittle 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 toenail fungus, also known as Onychomycosis, is challenging because the infection occurs deep within the nail bed and is difficult to reach. Repeated re-infection is also common, and traditional drug-based toenail fungus treatments are often ineffective. Oral medications have side effects that can cause liver damage.
What is Laser Toenail Fungus Treatment?
The “Laser therapy” is a specially designed device that shines through your toenails and vaporizes the toenail fungus embedded in your nail plate without damaging the nail itself or the surrounding tissue.
Is Laser Toenail Fungus Treatment painful?
No, laser toenail fungus removal is a gentle procedure – you may feel warmth in the nails, but there is no pain. Laser Therapy for toenail fungus has shown to be 80% effective, although it takes time. Healthy new growth will be visible within 3 months and the toenail will replace itself in 6 – 9 months. Laser toenail fungus treatment is safe for everyone and has shown no adverse reactions in any clinical studies – there are no contraindications.
What is required and involved?
- No toxic medication, thus no side effects
- No anesthesia
- No surgery or pain
- No recovery time
