Onychomycosis, or fungal infection of nails—most often on the toes—affects about 12% of Americans, according to the American Academy of Dermatology Current treatment methods have side effects and don’t work well. Fungus Laser Treatment offers significant clearing in a very well tolerated procedure with no pain.

The treatment to remove toenail fungus is quite simple, and involves directing pulses of 1064nm light energy at the nail plate in a quick, in-office procedure.

Some people are genetically prone to it. Others, including swimmers and other athletes, may be more likely to get it because they go barefoot in public areas or because their feet are often damp. In its mild forms, nail fungus is merely a cosmetic problem, but over time it can cause toenails to grow abnormally and become painful when walking.

Laser treatment for toenail fungus procedure requires one or a small number of safe, quick treatments with little or no discomfort and is performed as an outpatient service with no anesthesia. The gentle laser light beam has no harmful effects on healthy tissue and targets only the infected area of the toe, the toenail complex. Laser treatment for toenail fungus, eliminates side effects of traditional oral medications, which carries a risk of liver damage, and works better then nail lacquer, which has poor efficacyin a majority of cases.

During my evaluation of the infected nail(s) a decision will be made to debride the nail before the treatment. Some patients will need debridement and some won't. All toes will be evaluated for infection and be treated if necessary.
