Laser: A Non-Invasive, Efficient Solution for Fungal Nail (Onychomycosis)

Onychomycosis, better known as fungal toenails or toenail fungus, is a prevalent condition marked by fungal infections that impact the nails and the nail bed. The infection often results in thickened, brittle, yellow-hued nails that, apart from causing discomfort, can also exert painful pressure against the skin due to distorted growth.

If you’ve been battling this condition, you’ll agree that it can be unsightly, embarrassing, and most importantly, difficult to treat. Fortunately, hope’s not lost. There’s a non-invasive treatment available now that’s showing promising results – Laser Therapy.

Understanding Onychomycosis

Before delving into the treatment, it’s important to understand the condition itself. Onychomycosis doesn’t just cause physical discomfort, but it can also be a severe deterrent to your morale and self-esteem. Therefore, finding an effective treatment is key.

What is Laser Therapy?

The modus operandi of laser therapy is pretty straightforward. We employ an A.R.C Fox Laser, a Class IV High Intensity Laser, which compared to many low-level laser therapies available today, is far superior in reliability and efficacy.

How does Laser Therapy Work?

The laser beam, through a special applicator, is guided right onto the infected nail, permeating through to the nail bed. The thermal energy produced then denatures the fungal enzymes, inhibiting their survival and growth.

Fear not about damage to your surrounding tissues – the special applicator ensures a focused, targeted treatment that keeps your surrounding areas perfectly safe. Depending on the depth of your infection, you will generally require about four to six treatments, spaced four to six weeks apart.

The Benefits of Laser Therapy

Non-Invasive and Risk-Free

What sets apart laser therapy treatment is its non-invasive nature. While oral anti-fungal medication can often lead to side effects such as gut issues, nausea, or sun sensitivity, laser therapy is devoid of any systemic effects, thereby making it entirely safe with zero health risks to the patient.

Simple and Convenient

Furthermore, unlike some topical treatments, the application of laser therapy is no-fuss and clean. The 30-minute treatment can effortlessly be administered in a standard treatment room with no requirement for anesthesia or a recovery period post-treatment.

High Success Rate

During your visit, a podiatrist can care for your nail in general, including tidying up the fungal nail to enhance its appearance as the infected nail grows out. Laser therapy also comes with an impressive success rate. In clinical trials, the A.R.C Fox Laser exhibited an exceptional success rate of 92%.

A Superior Treatment for a Prevalent Issue

If Onychomycosis has been causing distress in your life, or if you’ve attempted numerous unsuccessful topical treatments or oral medications, laser therapy might be the much-needed relief you’ve been searching for. This efficacious, convenient, and non-invasive treatment provides a superior alternative to traditional treatment avenues.
