Nail fungus can be an embarrassing problem. Even worse, if left untreated nail fungus can develop into a condition known as onychomycosis. This is when the nail separates from the nail bed, resulting in pain and a foul odor. Even mild cases may cause you to feel uncomfortable revealing your feet or hands. Embarrassment about the condition of the nails may hold you back from doing some activities you love. You might miss out on swimming, going to the beach, or participating in certain sports because of your nails.
Thankfully, there are treatment options such as toenail fungus laser treatment. Treating the nail bed with deep heat from a laser is a suitable treatment for both men and women of all skin types. Learn more about this safe, effective treatment option. Book a free consultation with Distill Laser Clinic team online today.
You may be suffering from nail fungus issues if your nails are:
While there are oral medications that can help kill the fungus in your nail beds, it’s a treatment that’s not suitable for all patients. Some patients who are older or suffer from liver conditions may not be able to take anti-fungal oral medications. The medication isn’t always effective, either, leaving patients looking for other treatment options.
Toenail fungus laser treatment may be the better option. It’s a safe, effective option with few or no side effects for most patients. Toenail fungus laser treatments can help your body start to grow clear, healthy nails again. Treatments only take about 30 minutes, with full results seen in six to 12 months’ time. Starting the treatment now will help healthy nail growth begin right away. Book an appointment with our nail fungus treatment team today.
Distill Laser Clinic in North York uses a Gentlemax Pro laser. This nail fungus treatment laser uses an Nd: YAG 1064-nm laser to deeply penetrate the nail bed. The toenail fungus laser treatment won’t damage the surrounding healthy tissue. Being able to get below the surface of the nail with the heat energy is what allows the laser to temporarily stop the fungus growing there.
To maintain clear nail results, most patients will need at least four treatments with the laser. We also recommend the treatment of all nails even if the fungus is only presenting in one or two. You can book an appointment with our North York clinic today to learn more.
Nail fungus is not just embarrassing. It can also lead to severe conditions such as onychomycosis where your nails separate from the nail bed, causing a bad smell and pain. If you start noticing the symptoms of nail fungus, such as crumbly or brittle, distorted, dull, or dark nails, as well as yellow streaks and white spots, it is best to seek immediate treatment so you can heal as soon as possible. Distill Laser Clinic offers toenail fungus laser treatment for mild and severe cases. We use the gold standard in laser technology to provide deeper treatment into the nail bed to prevent fungal growth.
Laser clinics in North York may be the last thing on most people’s minds when dealing with nail fungus. They may rather apply topical anti-fungal ointments or take oral medication. However, both conventional treatments are not for everyone. Topical treatment may result in skin sensitivity and take too long to be effective. On the other hand, oral medication may not be suitable for individuals with liver problems.
Toenail fungus laser treatment is suitable for everyone regardless of their skin type. Distill Laser Clinic aims to deliver that treatment to you in the most comfortable and safe way, with little to no side effects for most of our patients. Our solution can lead to healthier and clear nails when it effectively helps to treat fungus. You only need to dedicate around 30 minutes of your time for our nail fungus laser treatment and the results should be more obvious in six to 12 months.
