Toenail Fungus Treatment
Laser toenail fungus treatment is helping many patients, who suffer from toenail fungus. Toenail fungus can make your toenails turn yellow, and make them thick and brittle. They often become painful, because damaged nails will usually become ingrown, and they make your feet lose their pleasantness.
Nail fungus infection is a condition which can be embarrassing and even painful. The infection is caused by fungus, or dermatophytes, and yeasts that invade the nail and space between the nail and its attachment to the nail bed.
Any toenail fungus sufferer will tell you that that the disease can be difficult to get under control. People will resort to creams, prescription drugs and even natural products to treat it, and usually without any luck.
Most podiatrists know that over half of the patients they see have some sort of toenail fungus infection. The problem with nail fungus seems to be much more widespread than most people think.
How we treat Nail Fungus Infections
Laser Treatment kills the pathogens that cause nail fungus without discomfort.
Using revolutionary laser treatment in 30 minutes, we can treat the pathogens that cause toenail fungus (Onychomycosis). Safe and without discomfort or side effects, the clinical studies have shown 88% effective rate; compared to leading prescription topical treatments which are only 8% effective after months of treatment. Oral anti-fungal medications are 80% effective in eradicating the pathogens and have potential negative side effects (liver inflammation, loss of taste senses).
This laser procedure is an innovative breakthrough in treating nail fungus. Without any cuts or burns, we have the advantage of treating patients without discomfort. The laser’s frequency shines through the toenail and vaporizes the fungus embedded in your nail bed and nail plate. Present studies show excellent results and several new studies are underway. Though no long term studies have been completed, it is currently thought that in order to prevent recurrence of the fungal infection, a patient must continue topical anti-fungal application at least 3 times per week and treat the inside of their shoes with anti-fungal powder on a regular basis.
Laser toenail fungus treatment could be what you are looking for, but you should learn a little about what it is, and how it actually works.
Laser toenail fungus treatment uses a laser beam to help kill the fungus. The laser pinpoints the infected area and normally takes about an hour or so to treat.
Although, it kills the fungus, patients need to wait until the new nail can grows and replaces the old one. Also, it normally takes about three laser treatments for it to be the most effective.
Podiatrists, who have been using laser toenail fungus treatment, say that cure rate is much higher than from those, who take oral medications. In addition, laser toenail fungus treatment doesn't have dangerous side effects, like liver damage, which can be caused by oral medications, such as Lamisil.
You should look into every possibility for treating fungus, including laser toenail fungus treatment. Toenail fungus can spread over time, so you should see your podiatrist as soon as you can. Contact Talus inMotion Foot & Ankle and schedule a consultation to discuss what options you have.
