Do your nails appear yellow, brittle, or thickened?
Then perhaps you suffer from onychomycosis, a condition also known as toenail fungus. Toenail fungus can be caused by heavy foot perspiration, poor shoe/sock ventilation, or walking barefoot in damp areas such as a gym or locker room. Until now, the only solutions for toenail fungus were to surgically remove the nail; apply topical treatments, which have poor success rate; or more recently, prescription medications, which have many potentially dangerous side effects.
Today, lasers are the latest treatment for Ugly nails:
Laser treatment can effectively rid your toenails of unsightly toenail fungus in as little as one or two treatments, depending on the severity of the condition. The mid-infrared laser wavelength penetrates the nail, eliminating the destructive fungus that cause the infection and revitalizing your nail as it grows out.
What to expect...
Your toenails will be cleaned and filed prior to the laser treatment. As each toe is treated with the laser you will feel a mild, warming sensation. The laser treatment will take about 20 minutes to treat both feet and there is usually no discomfort after the treatment. The physician will discuss post-treatment care to avoid fungal re-infection.
You will notice results within 2-4 months depending on how quickly your toenails grow. New, clear growth begins to appear at the bottom portion of your nail as the diseased portion of the nail grows out.
You may return to your normal daily routine immediately after your toenail treatment, including painting your nails or pedicure treatments.
