Laser nail fungus treatment can help eliminate your embarrassing condition and bring back your self-esteem and social life. Nail fungus infections can lead to brittle, painful and unsightly discolored fingernails and toenails. Your nails may become dull with no luster or shine. The affected nails may also become thickened and distorted in shape. While the condition is considered problematic and difficult to treat, laser treatment shows over 90% success rate. Your doctor should use a very careful protocol to make sure he or she doesn’t treat you for something you don’t have. The doctor should conduct the necessary tests to make sure you have nail fungus before recommending the laser treatment.
Benefits of the laser Nail Fungus treatment
Laser treatment of fungal infections is a good alternative to oral and topical treatments because this FDA approved procedure is safe and fast and without the risk of side effects. It’s a non invasive procedure that involves shinning a laser beam onto the affected area and killing disease-causing fungal cells. The procedure is painless so you don’t need any numbing medication. Laser treatment does not require the use of systematic medications which demand blood tests to monitor for possible liver damage. Furthermore, this treatment takes place at your doctor’s office and you don’t need any medication after the procedure which you may forget to take or stop taking all together. One treatment should be enough unless your condition is severe. You can put on your shoes and return to normal activity immediately following the procedure. You will see the results as soon as the old nail grows out and it’s replaced by a new, healthy nail.
Discomfort with Laser Nail Fungus Treatment
If you feel any discomfort during the procedure, you can notify the doctor. Discomfort may not include pain but slight warmth or occasional snapping sensation. Laser nail fungus treatment is hassle-free and effective compared to other treatments.
