What is toenail fungus?

Toenail fungus (also known as Onychomycosis) is a type of fungal infection, but it is an especially tenacious one and can rot away at the toenails for decades. The symptoms include:

Discoloration of the nail, including white patches or yellowish streaks
Thickening of the toenails
Brittle or flaking toenails
Darkening of the skin below the toenails
Seperation of the nail from the nail bed

Anyone who has had a case of toenail fungus knows exactly how hard it is to get rid of the problem. Topical medications rarely do anything, and oral medications usually carry side effects as bad as (or worse than) the fungus problem you are trying to eliminate.

Ultimately, the reason fungal creams and ointments so often fail is because they cannot penetrate below the surface of the nail. If you really want to get rid of your toenail fungus, you have to treat the problem beneath the nail where the fungus actually is. Only then will you begin to notice real results.

Why does laser treatment works for emanating toenail fungus? 

The laser treatment approach is FDA approved and does not require oral medications. There are also no messy creams to deal with.

With a 95% rate of effectiveness*, this treatment works because it is able to target beneath the surface of your nail, and deep into your nail bed, to attack the problem at its source. This treatment does penetrate, and it does so in a way that is both perfectly safe and highly effective. In most instances only one treatment is necessary.

The need for messy creams and long regiments eliminated, the laser treatment is the ultimate solution for toenail fungus. For more information or to book an appointment, please call 718-275-7590.
