Light Force Pro Laser
Although many people might not have heard the term ‘Onychomycosis,’ we have all heard about the phenomenon of toe fungus. Onychomycosis is a type of toenail fungus that can be treated with laser therapy using the Light Force Pro Laser. The Light Force Pro Laser penetrates the nail tissue, disrupting the growth of fungus and other pathogens enough to eradicate them. Due to the nature of the laser, it is normal to experience some mild discomfort during treatment.
Current research suggests that laser therapy is equally effective as medical therapy options for toenail fungus treatment, but some patients may require more than one treatment depending on the severity of the fungal infection. The severity of your case will be determined by your doctor during the initial diagnosis and treatment planning.
Treatment usually can be completed in one session, but the most severe cases may have follow-up treatments to ensure complete elimination of the infection. Fungal infections of the toenails can reappear, so following up with your physician is never a bad idea. The last thing you want is for your fungus to reappear right as summer arrives.
Aside from being unpleasant to look at, Onychomycosis can become painful in the most severe cases. Having your toenail fungus treated can improve your overall foot health and comfort. It will also restore your freedom to wear open-toed shoes in the summertime. If you have a fungal infection in your toenails or fingernails and would like to know if Light Force Pro Laser Therapy is a treatment option you should pursue, schedule a consultation today!
