TOENAIL FUNGUS (ONYCHOMYCOSIS)
Onychomycosis is a very difficult fungal infection to treat. Symptoms may include inflammation, swelling, yellow thickening or a dry brittle nail. The unsightly infection is not usually painful, unless the infection spreads.
The fungus tends to thrive under certain conditions, such as abnormal pH levels of the skin, a weakened immune system, continuous exposure to a moist environment including sweaty shoes and socks, poor hygiene and diabetes. If left untreated, toenail fungus can cause cracking, splitting and even complete loss of the toenail. The good news is that toenail fungus is curable and can be treated effectively.
A combined laser treatment approach with the ND:YAG 1064nm and the Q-Switched YAG 1064nm has been proven effective for the treatment of Onychomycosis. Treatment in most cases is in 4-6 quick sessions, with no side effects. Home care instructions will be given at the time of treatment.
The Alma LEDA (FDA Cleared) is a diode laser clinically proven in the treatment of nail fungus (onychomycosis). The lasers high peak temperature will deactivate the fungus using a large spot LEDA. The treatment is fast and virtually painless. A small amount of warmness may be felt.
