An Effective Solution to a Widespread Problem
As many as 10-15% of Americans suffer from unsightly nails due to toenail fungus. Those suffering from toenail fungus are constantly prevented from feeling comfortable with bare feet in public. Patients are highly motivated to resolve their toenail fungus problems.
About Toenail Fungus
The most common form of toenail fungus is distal subungual onychomycosis usually caused by Trichophyton rubrum, a dermatophyte that invades the nail bed and underside of the nail plate. The main side effect of a toenail fungal infection is that the nails become yellowed, brittle, and thickened.
Due to the location of the infection, topical creams are usually inefficacious. Oral medications lead to health risks and are only effective in a small percentage of users. Many patients undertake years of ineffective treatments at great expense, without the relief they want.
Alternatively, laser treatment targets and kills fungus beneath the nail bed in typically just one session.
