Chronic nail fungus affects approximately 40 million people in the United States and can negatively impact self confidence or turn into more serious health issues for those with immune disorders or diabetes. Nail fungus may occur due to damp feet or nail bed trauma, soil, infections from other people or animals. Treating nail fungus can be especially difficult as the infection exists within and below the nail plate so it can be very hard to access the are to treat it. The laser nail fungus treatment can offer a great, viable alternative to other treatments with great success.
We use the Excel V Laser, which is a monochromatic light source that heats the nail plat uniformly without causing any damage to the surrounding skin or the nail. This treatment may take six to twelve months and four monthly treatments. There is minimal discomfort and we combine the laser treatment with a topical solution.
