Our feet are interesting appendages. All the way down at the bottom of the body, we use them all the time, and yet we don’t pay much attention to them . . . until, that is, they start demanding attention! A fairly common issue that can plague anyone of any age, sex, race or social status is that of a nail fungus. A fungus enjoys growing in areas that are warm, moist or damp, and dark. In short, your toenails inside a shoe create a perfect growing environment for a fungus! While there are a few at-home remedies that you can try, many are ineffective and frustrating for the patient who watches as their nail turns from clear to hard, yellow and thick. Here at Abbott Foot & Ankle Clinic, we have an answer to this problem that might surprise you– a nail laser for fungus.
That’s right—a nail laser for fungus is now a treatment that can be provided to you! Not only is a nail laser for fungus virtually painless (most patients say they just feel warmth under their toenails), but it’s also incredibly effective. Because the nail laser pinpoints the fungal infected area and uses a wavelength to create heat that kills the fungus, you don’t have to mess around with partial relief from topicals or other issues. A nail laser for fungus finds and destroys the fungal microbes, allowing healthy nail to grow back. Having normal-looking toes is important for many people, especially during the summertime, so if you have toenail fungus, talk to us today about our nail laser for fungus.
