Nail fungus is a very common condition that usually affects one or more of your toenails. It typically never gets to all the nails and it can sometimes be found in fingernails, as well. This is a fungal infection that starts with a yellow spot on your nail; when the fungi spread, you may experience nail discoloration, thickening and it may cause your nail to crumble towards the edge.
When the symptoms are mild, most people do not seek treatment. However, if left untreated, nail fungus may spread to all your nails, cause pain and even cause nails to fall off. Topical creams and medication have some degree of success, but this treatment is usually lengthy and with no guarantees. At the Me & My Anti-Aging and Rejuvenation Centre in Barrie, Ontario, we treat nail fungus using the latest laser technology.
What is laser treatment for nail fungus?
During this treatment, a hand-held device is pointed at the infected nail; the device emits laser beams that kill off the fungus, but leave healthy tissue unharmed. This treatment literally takes less than 5 minutes. However, more than one session will be needed in order to get rid of nail fungus completely.
Also, even if not all toe or finger nails are affected, we recommend you treat them all so that the fungi can’t spread. You will see the results as soon as your nail grows and is replaced by new, healthy and fungus-free tissue.
