The truth is that we have millions of microorganisms living on and inside us. The vast majority cause us no harm, and many even give us some help (shoot-out to gut bacteria!).
Toenail fungus is not one of those organisms, however. A variety of fungal invaders can take up residence within the nail, and the results can be a thick, brittle, discolored mess.
Many people hide their toenails away, embarrassed to be seen with them. They might think that nothing can be done to rout the infection for good. There is hope, however! Associates in Podiatry provides treatment for fungal toenail infections, including our advanced Lunula Laser therapy.
Treating Toenail Fungus
Almost all forms of fungal toenail treatment will take time to complete. Not only must you get to the fungus to eradicate it, but the old, ravaged nail needs to be forced out by new, clear nails as they grow.
At Associates in Podiatry, we offer an excellent form of treatment that has shown results in many patients: the Lunula Laser. Laser treatment can get down into the nail to attack the fungus directly, meaning less filing of the nail. There is no burning and no pain; perhaps just a warming sensation as reported by some patients.
Laser treatment might be used in conjunction with topical anti-fungal ointments or oral medications. Potential side effects may need to be considered with medications, but there are no known side effects to laser treatment.
