Zap Your Toenail Fungus With Laser Therapy
- Posted on: Nov 15 2018
Lasers are leading the way in treating toenail fungal infections. Toenail fungus, known as Onychomycosis, is a rather common problem and begins at the root of the nail. As the fungus grows and spreads, the toenail root is damaged, creating an unhealthy nail. Read on to learn if you have toenail fungus and how laser therapy can help you get rid of it.
The symptoms of toenail fungus
If your toenail has a fungal infection it may exhibit one or many of the following characteristics: yellow, thickened, loosened, brittle, ingrown, white stripes, raised, crooked, painful, darkened, flaky debris.
At Dr. Soomekh’s office, we offer professional and quality treatments to address your foot and ankle aches and pains. For treating toenail fungus, we offer the FDA approved Astanza Revolution Laser. This laser is unique in that it has consistently reliable pulses, unlike other passively Q-switched lasers that have inconsistent pulse lengths. This irregular pulsing can create uneven power after every pulse. The Revolution’s phenomenal pulsing quality and consistency enable you to receive better treatments, improved skin safety, and increased patient satisfaction.
What To Expect From Your Results
After one Astanza Revolution laser treatment, the fungal colony will be cleared out, thus enabling your nails to grow healthy and strong. At this point, Dr. Soomekh recommends receiving three treatments for the next three months. This will allow the fungus to be completely and thoroughly killed off so it will not reappear.
After the laser pulses eradicate the fungus, the new and healthy nail will begin to grow out. This will take a few months. Patients report high satisfaction with using laser therapy to address their toenail fungus problem.
