Is laser treatment effective for treating toenail fungus?
Laser therapy for fungal nails is quite effective and is approved by the FDA (the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The governmental regulatory agency responsible for determining whether or not medical equipment is safe).
At Foot & Ankle Associates of Florida, we provide treatment for fungal toenails using the Fotona laser. This procedure uses concentrated light beams to weaken and kill the parasitic fungi responsible for your discolored, unsightly nails. These therapy sessions are quick, painless, and performed exclusively in our Altamonte Springs and Sandlake offices.
There are a variety of options for treating toenail fungus, but many have disadvantages. Oral medications can cause unwanted side effects and it is often difficult for topical compounds alone to reach fungus residing below the surface of the nail in the nailbed. As such, laser treatment is an option that is safer and more effective than traditional approaches.
For more information on laser treatment for toenail fungus, give us a call at 407-339-7759 (unless you live in Lake County in which case, call 352-589-9550). If you are ready to clear up your discolored nails, request an appointment with any of our Lake Mary, Kissimmee, Altamonte Springs, Orlando, or Tavares offices today!
