How Can Laser Treatment Help With Onychomycosis?

If you’ve been living with onychomycosis, you may have tried several different over-the-counter products to eliminate your toenail fungus problem. When home remedies don’t work, it can be frustrating, but it doesn’t have to last! Laser treatment is a safe and modern treatment option available at Cherrywood Foot Care to remove and prevent future toenail fungus concerns.

How Can Laser Treatment Help With Onychomycosis?

Onychomycosis, or toenail fungus, describes a fungal infection under the nail that causes the nail to thicken and become discolored. While this condition is rarely serious or painful, it can be challenging to treat and wreak havoc on your confidence. Without proper treatment, onychomycosis can quickly spread to other toenails. Most commercial toenail fungus remedies provide limited relief or require multiple applications to eradicate the infection. Laser treatment at Cherrywood Foot Care can eliminate toenail fungus in as little as one treatment. Our Cool Touch Laser is a revolutionary onychomycosis treatment that penetrates the soft tissue and nail to kill the infection-causing pathogens and promote healthy nail growth. The laser device uses a tight spectrum of near-infrared light. The laser passes through the fungal nail without causing damage to the nail or surrounding skin. When the laser reaches the optimal temperature, it applies a cool cryogen spray, successfully killing the pathogens. If you are interested in trying laser treatment for onychomycosis, here are some benefits you can experience:

  • No Discomfort – Laser treatment for fungal toenails doesn’t require any anesthesia. This outpatient procedure can be performed at our office and takes anywhere from 20 to 30 minutes, so you can walk out of our office fungus-free and in minimal discomfort. 
  • Efficient – The heat from our Cool Touch Laser targets and destroys the pathogens that cause onychomycosis. This treatment is highly efficient and yields optimal outcomes for our patients. 
  • Proven Results – This treatment is clinically proven to be effective. Most patients will experience significant improvements in as little as one treatment session. Our clients typically require 2 to 3 treatments.
