Over 35 million Americans suffer from toenail fungus, called Onychomycosis. This infection can cause nails to turn yellow, thicken, and- over time- they can become brittle.
Fungal infections can be caught in common places like the gym, swimming pools, and nail salons. They may cause pain and are often embarrassing.
If you have toenail fungus or are embarrassed by your nails, there is a new solution: laser therapy, a fast treatment that takes your podiatrist just 20 minutes to perform, requires no anesthesia or numbing medicine, and there is no downtime following the procedure.
It is very safe and effective, and does not require a lifestyle change or regular blood tests to monitor liver function. Unlike systemic oral medications, laser therapy is targeted directly at the infection. Unlike topical treatments, laser therapy is able to penetrate the nail plate to get to the fungus.
