New Nail Laser Centers Zap Fungal Infections for Good!

The expert podiatrists at Your Next Step know that, just like your feet, lasers are underappreciated. People use lasers to perform a variety of scientific and medical procedures, yet they have gained a reputation as playthings for pranksters or tools for tricking innocent felines! We’ve decided to try to remedy that. For this post, we’ll examine how lasers can assist in fighting off toenail fungus, a stubborn problem that is often quite resistant to treatment.

Wait, What’s Toenail Fungus?

  • Also known as onychomycosis, toenail fungus is an unpleasant and sometimes painful problem in which a fungal infection causes discoloration, odor, and crumbling in the toenail.
  • Infectious conditions, loss of the afflicted nail, and other complications can arise if the condition is left untreated for too long.
  • Toenail fungus can spread, with the infection migrating away from the nail to the feet and ankles.
  • Even if treated, it often recurs, as the fungus deep within the nail can be difficult to fully destroy.

Unfortunately, topical treatments purchased over the counter, such as polishes, oils, or creams, tend to be ineffective. And while oral medications may have better success rates than topical treatments, they also come with side effects, and they must be taken consistently to have a chance at success.

Given the difficulty, many patients find it frustrating to treat fungal toenail infections fully.

That’s where New Nail Laser Centers come in.
