Laser Fungal Nail Therapy

When you have fungal toenails, it’s simply an embarrassing condition. You look down at your bare feet and see unsightly, ragged, discolored, and brittle nails that make you want to cover them up and hope they clear up on their own.

Unfortunately, the fungus responsible does not go away without professional treatment. Further, it only worsens over time when left unaddressed. We do have some good news, however – our advanced, highly-effective laser therapy for fungal nails can make a major difference!

Why Your Nails are Discolored

Put simply, fungal toenails are a matter of microscopic fungus getting underneath your nails’ hard keratin tissue and then festering there. The warm, damp environment down there is perfect for the pathogen to grow and spread. As it does, your nails develop the aforementioned symptoms.

When a fungal infection worsens, you face an increased risk of having pain, secondary infections, and even ingrown toenails as a result. An especially severe infection even causes permanent damage to the keratin.

How Fungal Nails Used to be Treated

Prior to technological advancements, toenail fungus had previously been treated with topical or oral antifungal medications (or a combination of both). The topical medications served to eradicate fungus on the surface of an affected nail, whereas the oral variety traveled through the bloodstream to reach the infection residing under the nail tissue.

While these were effective methods for some patients, they came with their respective drawbacks. In the case of topical medications, they did a solid job of tackling surface-level fungal spores, but were not capable of reaching underneath. The difficulty with oral medications is that they didn’t necessarily work for everyone and could have unpleasant side effects for some people. On top of that, both of these methods could take a long time to heal infected nails.

Introducing Laser Therapy for Fungal Toenails!

We are pleased to offer a third, better option here at Heartland Foot and Ankle Associates – laser therapy! This technology is a fairly new, FDA-approved treatment option that has proven to provide a lot of success in eliminating fungal infections and restoring affected nails back to health. Best of all, this advanced therapy attacks the infection at its source, which makes it so effective at destroying the pathogen that has been damaging your nails!

How Laser Therapy for Fungal Nails Works

Fungal toenail laser treatment uses focused, high-intensity beams of light to reach the infection site residing underneath the hard keratin – without having to surgically remove the nail or send medication through your bloodstream. The laser travels at a very specific wavelength to pass cleanly through your nail. The specific wavelength we use is chosen because it allows the laser to vaporize the offensive fungus without damaging your toenail or its respective nailbed.

Once the infection has been eradicated, your body will start to begin producing healthy, clear nail tissue.

The actual procedure is quick and painless. It takes roughly fifteen minutes and most people experience only a slight warming sensation in their toes. After the treatment session is over, there’s no additional recovery time needed. You can simply go about your normal daily activities.

It’s important to know that even though healthy, uninfected nail tissue starts growing back immediately, it will take several months for them to grow completely and look healthy. This should be expected because your toes have to entirely replace all of the tissue that had been damaged by the fungus. Of course, having the infection eliminated enables the process to begin sooner than it otherwise would.

Once they are clear, you will need to take certain steps to prevent reinfection. The human body is incapable of developing an immunity to fungus, so your toenails could be at risk for another infection if you aren’t careful. No need to worry, though – you aren’t alone! We will help you take the right measures to keep your nails clear and healthy.
