Unsightly nail fungus can be embarrassing and uncomfortable, and for patients with diabetes or immune disorders, it can cause serious health problems. At Rochester Laser Center, the medically-supervised practice treats nail fungus with the PinPointe™ FootLaser®, which effectively destroys fungus underneath the nail plate, leading to clearer, healthier-looking nails. If you suspect you have toenail fungus, and you live in the area of Rochester Hills, Michigan, call the office or use the online booking agent to find out if laser treatment will help you.
Yellowed, cracked, and disfigured nails are one sign of toenail fungus. Other possible signs include:
You may feel self-conscious about the appearance of your nails, and they may cause discomfort when you wear certain shoes.
Nail fungus develops due to a pathogen. You’re vulnerable to developing toenail fungus when you have experienced nail trauma, worn tight shoes, or are in poor health. You may be exposed to toenail fungus in community showers, such as at a gym or public pool.
Nail fungus is hard to treat because the infection exists underneath and inside the nail. Topical treatments are usually unable to reach and destroy the infection.
The PinPointe FootLaser can destroy toenail fungus in people who haven’t had any success using topical or oral medications. It penetrates the outer layer of your nail and targets the fungus that lives within and underneath the toenail.
The energy of the laser precisely addresses all fungus, bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens in the nail bed. It doesn’t affect surrounding tissue or the nail itself.
Your treatment lasts approximately 30 minutes, and you need just one session to experience results. You won’t notice a change right away, as it takes time for a healthy, clear nail to grow in.
You experience no downtime following laser treatment and can walk out of the clinic immediately following. You may also apply nail polish afterward.
Most people find the procedure causes no pain. You may notice a slight warmth and may feel a slight pinprick sensation at points during the treatment.
If you have discolored, brittle toenails that suggest toenail fungus, seek laser treatment today to finally achieve clear, healthy nails that cause no pain or embarrassment.
