Toenail fungus, or onychomycosis, is a fungal infection beneath the nail that can result in thick, discolored and cracked nails. Without treatment, nails can cause painful pressure and irritation or even begin to split.
Treatment for Toenail Fungus
Since the infection is located beneath the nail, treating toenail fungus can be almost impossible with traditional medications. Topical antifungal creams often do not penetrate deep enough into the nail tissue, and oral medications require prolonged treatments that can have serious side effects.
But now, toenail fungus can be treated with no pain, no medications and no negative side effects. The Pinpointe™ FootLaser™ uses a pulsed beam of light to penetrate the nail and kill fungal infections instantly. The laser only affects infected tissue in the nail bed without harming the nail or surrounding skin.
Your nails will not instantly become clear, but healthy nails begin growing immediately, becoming visible in as little as two months. Nail polish may be used as early as two weeks after the treatment.
