Once considered something futuristic, lasers have moved out of the realm of science-fiction and become a rather useful tool in many different areas and disciplines. They are used in manufacturing processes to drill holes in metal, cut fabric for clothing, and control machinery. Construction professionals rely on lasers for surveying roads, leveling land, and accurately measuring distances. Now lasers have become invaluable in the medical field, as they can cauterize blood vessels, repair detached retinas, and even play a role in cancer treatment.
We pleased to offer laser treatments at Foot & Ankle Associates of Florida. Laser treatment for fungal toenails is a safe, effective way to restore your nails back to health. Let’s take a look at why laser treatment might be the right choice for you!
With laser treatment, we use concentrated beams of light to eradicate the offensive fungus. There are no known side effects from this therapy. It is completely safe and, perhaps even better, painless.
In addition to being safe and painless, therapy sessions are quick and performed in our office, (exclusively in Sandlake or Altamonte Springs). After your session is complete, you can simply put your footwear back on, head out the front door, and then go about with the rest of your day. We will send you home with a treatment plan to prevent future growth of toenail fungus.
The treatment has proven to be quite successful. The lasers are able to penetrate through the nail tissue and down to the fungus residing in the nailbed. This makes laser a more effective treatment method for many patients instead of using a topical medication alone. It is important for you to understand that it will take some time for a healthy nail to grow in.
