Laser Treatment for Toenails
As many as 10% of Americans suffer from toenail fungus. Unsightly toenails prevent you from wearing toeless sandals or going barefoot. Simplicity Medspa uses an FDA approved laser to treat toenail fungus. The laser treatment has the following advantages:
- Little discomfort you experience pulses of energy from the laser that penetrate your nail to kill the fungus in the nail bed.
- Treatments are safe.
- You experience little downtime.
- The new nail will be healthier.
You may need 3-5 treatments to rid the nail of all the fungus, but the results will be amazing.
Toenail fungus or onychomycosis begins as a white or yellow spot under your toenail. If you let toenail fungus go without treatment, the fungus digs deeper, cause your nail to smell somewhat foul, thicken, discolor, and become brittle at the edges.
Fungus under your toenails can develop at any age, but it is common in older adults. As the nails age, toenails become brittle and dry. Cracks in the nails allow fungi to invade the nail. If you sweat heavily, have a history of athlete’s foot, walk barefoot in communal areas (like swimming pools and gyms), or have a skin condition (psoriasis), you can be prone to toenail fungus.
