Class 4 Laser Treatment for Toenail Fungus

Class 4 Laser Treatment for Toenail Fungus

You no longer need to be shy about wearing open-toe shoes and sandals, or just going barefoot, due to toenail fungus or discoloration.

District Foot and Ankle is the area’s leader in restoring toenails to health, providing a natural and luminous appearance.

One of the safest and most effective treatments for onychomycosis is Class IV laser therapy.

Laser therapy destroys the fungus living underneath the nail without causing discomfort or any undesirable side effects.

When the laser “attacks” the fungus colony beneath your nail, the components that allow it to grow and thrive are destroyed. This allows your nail bed to begin producing a new healthy toenail.

Patients may sit back and relax during laser therapy, which is fast and painless treatment.

Toenail fungus can be very challenging to treat. The first step is to confirm the diagnosis. Combination therapy can be effective (pills, topical medication and laser) for even more involved infections.

Although toenail fungus is not a life-threatening condition, it can cause pain due to thickening of the toenail and could potentially act as a source of superinfection – like with bacteria. This can be especially concerning in some patients, like with diabetes, who are at higher risk for foot complications to occur.
