Do your toenails appear yellow, brittle or thickened?

Then perhaps you suffer from an infection, a condition called nail fungus. Nail Fungus can be caused by heavy foot perspiration, poor shoe/sock ventilation, or walking barefoot in damp areas such as a gym or locker room. Until now, the only solutions for nail fungus were to surgically remove the nail; apply topical treatments, which have a poor success rate; or more recently, prescription medications, which have many potentially dangerous side effects.

There are many patients who affected by toenail fungus in Monmouth County but do not know how to take care of it.

Lots of people live their entire life with annoying and troublesome toenails without ever before receiving medical attention. Laser toenail fungus removal is often a risk-free as well as simple treatment plan making use of laser treatment to be able to get rid of toenail fungus.

The midinfrared laser wavelength penetrates the nail, eliminating the destructive infections and revitalizing your nail as it grows out.

There are many ways to treat fungal nails. If topicals and oral medications fail and permanent or non permanent removal of the nail is not desired, laser nail treatment can help. There is an initial treatment and a second treatment three months later. In six to twelve months if the desired results are achieved, further treatment is usually not required however there is a yearly program to maintain the results for a few years until we are sure the condition is not retuning.
