What is Toenail Fungus?

Toenail fungus, or onychomycosis, is a pesky condition that causes thick, brittle, or crumbly nails. While the problems caused by toenail fungus are usually cosmetic, it can lead to permanent nail damage if left untreated. Toenail fungus can lead to confidence issues, which can hold you back from certain activities this summer. 

Laser Removal for Toenail Fungus

You may have tried several over-the-counter medications to manage your toenail fungus, but you may not have achieved your desired results this way. Toenail fungus is an infection that can be hard to treat but is possible with the help of an experienced podiatrist Bayside NY. We are pleased to offer laser toenail fungus treatment to help rid you of this problem for good! Laser treatment is a gentle treatment that does not require any kind of anesthetic. Here are some reasons to consider laser treatment for toenail fungus:

  • It can eliminate the pathogens causing the infection. 
  • It’s clinically proven to be effective. 
  • You will experience minimal discomfort. 
  • It’s an outpatient procedure. 
  • Pain medication is not necessary. 

Many of our patients show improvement after just one treatment. If you are still having reservations about undergoing laser treatment, our podiatrist Bayside NY would like to explain how it works. Our laser device emits energy that produces heat, and during this treatment, the laser is directed, so this heat penetrates all the way down to the nail bed where the fungus is located. In response to the heat, the fungus is destroyed, and new growth is inhibited. Laser treatment can effectively kill the infection without causing damage to the surrounding skin and nail.
