Laser Beams Wipe out Toenail Fungus

Many people suffer from fungal toenails. Fungus can make toenails so unattractive! If you’ve just spent an entire summer keeping them covered and out of sight, resolve to fix the problem now. Fast, effective treatment for fungal toenails is available at Montgomery Foot Care Specialists in Alabama’s River Region.

Traditional treatments

In the past, we could only offer your two treatments for embarrassing toenail fungus. One or both of these may still be good options for you:

  1. Oral medications. Some of these carry with them serious side effects. They can also interfere with other medications that you’re already taking.
  2. Topical ointments. These are available over-the-counter, but chronic or difficult infections may not respond to them. We offer prescription-strength solutions.

The newest treatment

The latest treatment for clearing up unsightly fungus on your toes is with a laser. Yes, think “Star Trek,” but with a much smaller beam of light. A beam of laser light carefully concentrated on your toenails zaps away fungus without harming the soft tissues of your toe. The procedure is painless! It’s also quite quick: one treatment is usually enough to eliminate your fungal problem.

Other uses for laser

Onychomycosis – the medical term for nail fungus – isn’t the only thing we treat with laser. Pointed laser beams also offer our patients relief from conditions such as warts, tendinitis, and heel pain.

It’s no fun living with thick, yellow, discolored, or crumbling toenails. Laser treatment for fungal toenails will have you parading your clean, clear toenails in no time.
