There are many causes for toenail changes including trauma, fungus, yeast, and bacterial infections. In most cases testing of the nail plate is recommended prior to initiating a treatment for a toenail condition. Verifying the cause of the nail changes increases the likelihood of appropriate therapies in effort to remedy the condition.
Nail changes from microtrauma accumulate over time and cause a thick, painful and irregular nail. This is mostly untreatable.
Treatment for nail fungus (onychomycosis) is usually targeted to the specific infecting organism. There are multiple treatment methods including nail topicals and pills. All methods may take up to one year to prove effective.
Though uncommon some nail conditions are caused by bacteria or yeast colonization between the nail and the skin. Topical treatment is with a prescription cream or ointment.
Laser therapy, also known as laser treatment or laser fungal nail therapy, is a relatively new and non-invasive option for treating toenail fungus (onychomycosis). While it may not be a first-line treatment and its effectiveness can vary from person to person, there are several potential benefits associated with laser therapy for toenail fungus:
It is important to note that the effectiveness of laser therapy for toenail fungus can vary from person to person. Some individuals may experience significant improvement, while others may not respond as drastically to the treatment. Additionally, multiple treatment sessions are required for the best results, each being one month apart. Even then, sometimes toenail fungus can sometimes recur after treatment.
Before considering laser therapy for toenail fungus we will schedule an initial consultation and perform a simple nail biopsy. This way we can evaluate the severity of your condition and discuss the most appropriate treatment options for your specific case, which may include topical antifungal medications, oral medications, or other treatments in addition to or instead of laser therapy. We look forward to meeting you soon and starting you down your path toward clear and healthy toenails.
