Our Podiatrist In Scarborough, ME Can Help Fungal Toenails With Laser Therapy
Do you have thick, yellow, discolored toenails?
Are you embarrassed to wear your open-toed shoes in public?
Chances are you have fungal toenails, a condition also known as onychomycosis.
Fungal toenails are caused by an organism that grows in and under the nail.
The fungus likes to grow in warm, moist places like your shoes. Many patients pick up fungal toenail infections in the gym locker room, from a nail salon, wet shoes or from trauma. Fungus can stay in the nails for many years and can be passed from one person to another.
There are currently three treatment modalities for this condition. They include topical medications, oral medications, which can have some serious side effects; and the newest modality which is laser therapy.
At Lighthouse Foot & Ankle Center we use the Lunula Laser.
The Lunula Laser is the easy and convenient treatment that helps turn your discolored and disfigured nails into clearer, healthier looking nails.
- The only touchless, painless treatment for onychomycosis
- No pain, no downtime, and no risk
- No more embarrassment about unsightly feet
The Lunula Laser uses low-level laser light to treat foot fungus, and requires very little time or set-up for physicians or their staff. It’s the only system you can turn on and walk away—the device is already pre-set. In fact, only four 12-minute sessions are needed to treat the affected area.
The Lunula Laser is the simple and painless solution to effectively treat onychomycosis. From baseline to 6 months post treatment patients experienced 6.15mm of new clear nail growth or 37% clearing of the nail.
If you're tired of looking at those unsightly toenails, please contact our office to determine if you are a candidate for laser therapy.
