Get Rid of Your Toenail Fungus With the PinPointe™ FootLaser® Treatment

Get Rid of Your Toenail Fungus With the PinPointe™ FootLaser® Treatment

Toenail fungus is as embarrassing as it is uncomfortable, and it’s tough to treat. Why spend another penny on over-the-counter topicals or another day hiding your fungal nails in a shoe?

Expert podiatrist Dr. Kelly Geoghan offers effective treatments to eradicate your fungus for good. Here’s what to expect from toenail laser treatments with the PinPointe™ FootLaser®. 

Shedding light on your fungus

You consider yourself hygienic, so how did you wind up with toenail fungus? The truth is that anyone can get toenail fungus, even the clean freaks. 

Contracting toenail fungus is easy, and you may not even realize it’s happened. The microscopic fungal organisms sneak into your toenail through any break in your skin, such as a puncture, cut, or skin crack. 

You’re more likely to pick up toenail fungus if you walk barefoot in damp areas, especially those open to the public (think locker rooms and swimming pools). Toenail fungus may also live in your or your nail technician’s grooming tools. Sometimes, toenail fungus can spread simply through person-to-person contact. 

If you have underlying health conditions that affect your circulatory system and your ability to heal — such as diabetes, venous insufficiency, or a weakened immune system — you may be at an increased risk for fungal nails. 

Once the fungus has breached your skin’s barrier, it quickly gets to work, tunneling underneath your nail and expanding below the nail plate. As the infection rages on, your nail starts to pay the price. You know you have toenail fungus if you notice your nail is:

Toenail fungus also makes your nails smell bad. 

The worst part about toenail fungus is that it’s a progressive infection. That means without prompt treatment, it only worsens. In some severe cases, toenail fungus spreads to your other nails and progresses to the point of affecting your ability to walk. 

Before the infection reaches that stage, we recommend making an appointment with Dr. Geoghan for advanced care. 

Fighting back with laser power

We turn to lasers when resistant toenail fungus doesn’t respond to traditional treatments. Here’s how it works. 

The PinPointe FootLaser system delivers powerful laser energy directly into your fungal nails. The lasers penetrate your nail without damage or pain, with their sights set on stubborn fungi. 

One treatment with this FDA-cleared device is usually all it takes to help your body fight against fungus. Over the next few months, your infected nail grows out, followed by a new, healthy nail. 

The PinPointe laser is virtually painless and doesn’t require anesthesia or downtime to recover. You can walk away from our office confident that you’ll conquer fungus with zero damage done to your toenails or surrounding skin. 

Because laser therapy for toenail fungus is so low-risk, most patients are eligible for treatment. Dr. Geoghan carefully evaluates your current symptoms and overall health to ensure you are an ideal candidate before recommending treatment.
