Laser Nail Fungus Treatment Newnan

“Let your fingers and toes brilliantly sparkle”

Nail fungus is a troubling chronic disorder that impacts self confidence and can lead to further health issues especially for those prone to diabetes or immune disorders. Treatment of nail fungus is difficult because the infection is within and below the nail plate, making it hard for other treatments to reach it.

Laser procedures offer a new alternative to oral medication, which may result in liver damage or medication reactions. Conversely topical drug therapies alone have poor success rates.

Nail fungus, affects close to 40 million people in the US. While some people are genetically prone to it, others, like athletes, may be more likely to get it due to damp feet or nail bed trauma. Sources of nail fungus include soil, animals and infection from other people.

Our Excel V laser is a monochromatic light source which uniformly heats the nail plate without causing damage to the nail or the surrounding skin, as it selectively kills the nail fungus. It usually takes up to 6 to 12 months and 4 monthly treatments for a nail to grow out from base to tip.

Patients experience minimal discomfort with our Excel laser treatments. We combine a proprietary topical solution with a series of Excel V laser sessions. The goal is to significantly improve the health and appearance of your nails.

    Blepharoplasty

    Blepharoplasty is utilized to repair sagging eyelid skin and correct unsightly fat pads. Depending on the nature of the issue, excess skin, redundant muscle, and bulging fat pads can be cosmetically corrected in order to restore a refreshed and more youthful appearance to the eyes. CO2 Laser can be used simultaneously with this procedure to remove unwanted skin growths and improve sun damaged skin.

    Chemical Peel

    The precise formulas in peels vary and the type utilized is personally adjusted to meet each patient’s needs. For example, tricholoracetic acid (TCA) is a medium depth peel, which can eliminate brown spots and help to even out textural irregularities on the face and neck. Downtime is usually around 7 days. Glycolic acid peels are referred to as lunchtime peels.

    Facelift

    The “lyft” procedure is coined term that we are using to describe a procedure which removes excess fat and skin from the lower face, neck or both. Skin and musculature is tightened in the process. Repositioning of the skin allows our patients to achieve a more youthful appearance. Those who respond best have deep cheek folds and loose sagging skin around the neck. As we age, fat pads descend from the upper cheek and skin laxity becomes more prominent in the jowl regions of the face. Our lyft technique uses smaller incisions. These are hidden behind the ear folds and/or in the crease just under the chin. By minimizing incision length (and undermining), the procedure is safer and requires less downtime than that seen with a traditional facelift.
