    New Treatment for Nail Fungus

    Published on April 18th, 2012

    Just in time for summer I am now beginning to treat nail fungus using FDA approved laser treatments.

    There are multiple benefits to this treatment compared to the old one. Previously, treatment for nail fungus included blood testing, oral medication, and the possibility of harsh side effects from said medication.

    With laser treatment, all that is required is a 30 minute procedure that targets the fungus while leaving the surrounding nail and skin undamaged. Given the simplicity of the procedure there is no need for anesthesia or painkillers; at most patients may experience modest warmth.

    It does take time to notice visibile changes in your nail. Once the new nail begins to grow and replace the infected nail, then changes due to the procedure become apparent. In the meantime, patients having this procedure done do not have to change their previous activites.

    For more information about this procedure, please contact my office for a consultation to determine if this treatment is right for you.
