Your nails are discolored, warped, and seemingly crumbling to pieces: Fungus has taken hold. We understand if your first instinct is to panic, clear the drugstore shelves of every available remedy, or even ignore it and hope it disappears on its own.
But those methods are either ineffective or potentially harmful.
Without prompt treatment from a specialist like Dr. Kelly Geoghan, toenail fungus can run rampant and may even impede your ability to walk normally.
Fortunately, we offer the best, most advanced toenail fungus treatments, including PinPointe™ FootLaser® Therapy to help you win the war against fungus.
Fungus is one of the most common foot problems, affecting nearly 14% of the population. It occurs anytime your nails (namely your toenails, but your fingernails can be affected, as well) come into contact with fungi. You’re especially susceptible if you have a cut or crack in your skin.
Where can you pick up fungus? Almost anywhere, though coming into contact with someone who has fungus and walking barefoot through a damp public area like a locker room are among the most common ways you can become infected.
Once the fungi take root, they expand under your nail plate, causing discoloration and other frustrating and embarrassing symptoms.
When you notice that you’ve got fungus, turn away from your medicine cabinet and to our advanced treatments.
PinPointe FootLaser Therapy is a clinically proven treatment that uses the power of laser energy to neutralize fungus. The laser passes painlessly through your nail plate and directly targets the fungus lurking below.
Bonus: PinPointe is fast and virtually pain-free. Most of our patients are in and out within 30 minutes, and besides a gentle warming sensation or a mild pinprick, they don’t feel anything during treatment.
In many cases, one treatment is enough to heal your fungal nails, but we can recommend multiple treatments to get the best results. Over a few months, the fungus fades, leaving a clear, healthy nail behind.
PinPointe isn’t the only treatment we offer for fungal nails. Depending on your needs, we may also recommend the following.
Are your fungal nails giving you bad vibrations? Shockwave therapy may be able to help. This therapy uses ultrasonic vibrations to stimulate blood cell production and blood flow, which can help you recover quickly from the effects of fungus.
MLS laser therapy is on the cutting edge of podiatric treatments. Similar to PinPointe treatments, MLS laser therapy uses laser energy to address foot problems. The unique wavelengths of light act to reduce inflammation, accelerate healing, and manage pain.
