Newnan Laser Nail Fungus Treatment
“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 that 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.
Why Undergo Laser Nail Fungus Treatment?
Experts choose this treatment over traditional therapies for nail fungal infections, such as topical creams and antifungal medications; these tend to be unsuccessful or unpleasant.
Topical antifungal creams are less effective since they don’t penetrate deep enough to destroy the fungus. Antifungal drugs taken orally can be harmful to the liver and kidneys, and they are only 30% effective.
Laser nail fungus treatments have been proven to be the most successful treatment for this condition, with an 80-percent-or-higher success rate. No downtime or recovery time is needed after the treatments, which run 10 to 20 minutes. Depending on the severity of the infection, multiple treatments may be required.
Is Laser Nail Fungus Treatment Suitable for Me?
It is critical to determine whether laser nail fungus treatment is appropriate for you. Excel V Laser therapy is ideal for eliminating toenail fungus at the nail’s root and preventing recurrence. Some people, however, may not be good candidates for this kind of treatment.
If you have skin cancer, peripheral neuropathy, or the chronic autoimmune disease plaque psoriasis, consult with a dermatologist at Dermatology Institute. Women who are pregnant may also be ineligible for the treatment. There are no age limitations for this procedure.
Laser Nail Fungus Treatment Preparation
Before laser nail fungus treatment, clean your nails and exfoliate your hands or feet to remove any dead skin that could host fungus. Before receiving treatment, you will be recommended to remove all nail polish completely—nail paint is impervious to laser energy.
It’s also a good idea to bring new socks or socks that have been freshly cleaned in bleach and an extra pair of shoes to wear after the laser nail fungus treatment. Do not put them on until after your treatment is completed. You don’t want to re-insert a cured foot into a fungus-infested sock.
How Much Does Laser Nail Fungus Treatment Cost?
The cost for Laser Nail Fungus Treatment will depend on several factors. The number of sessions will influence the final price, as will the severity of the cosmetic issues being addressed.
