Laser Treatment For Nail Fungus
An infection known as Onychomycosis occurs when fungi, infects toenails. At the onset of this infection white or yellow spots appear on the tip of finger or toenails. As the infection progresses the fungus spreads deeper into the nails and causes them to thicken and become discoloured and distorted. Nail fungus is seen to affect toenails more than fingernails.
In some cases a toenail infection leads to the nails becoming brittle. Though this infection in most cases is not painful, the infected toenails become disfigured and can lower one’s self-confidence due to its unsightly appearance.
Nail fungus is often confused with athlete’s foot, which is known to affect the skin of the feet. However, these are different conditions though they may co-exist at the same time.

The Most Common Symptoms Of Toenail Fungus Are:
Toenail fungus treatment can be difficult and frustrating. People tend to ignore nail fungus as the condition is painless. However one should look out for symptoms of nail fungus and begin treatment early on.
Common Ways to Treat Toenail Fungus Include: Over The Counter Lotions And Ointments
While the above are the most commonly used methods to treat toenail fungus, laser treatment for nail fungus has gained popularity over the past few years. Laser treatment for nail fungus is relatively painless and helps eradicate nail fungus effectively.
A number of doctors today recommend laser treatment for nail fungus over oral medications that carry a risk of liver damage. The latest laser treatment involves using cold laser beams that vaporize nail fungus caused by wearing sweaty trainers.
Unlike the conventional laser treatments that use hot beams to treat an affected area, these new handheld devices employ a special type of intense light that zaps nail fungus.
Why More and More People Are Opting for Laser Treatment?
A recent survey came up with alarming statistics that show that about 3-9% of the human population are affected by toenail fungus. This is predominantly seen in men though several cases of toenail fungus have been reported amongst women as well. Though known to be an age related problem, it has been observed that people who do not follow a good personal hygiene contract this infection.
Though the laser treatment is at present not covered by insurance, an increasing number of patients are opting for laser treatment as a nail fungus cure, owing to its high efficacy.
Basically, laser toenail treatment utilizes a specialized laser that is able to pass light through the nail’s surface without damage to the skin or nails and kill the fungus directly. The process can be completed in one trip to your doctor’s office and you don’t have to worry about side effects, long term visits, or prescriptions.
If you are tired of dealing with the pain of toenail fungus, and the embarrassment of not being able to comfortably wear sandals in public, laser toenail treatment may be a great option.
