Fungal toenail infections are an extremely common foot health problem. There are over 25 million people in the United States who suffer from it. Yet many people don't realize they have infected nails – and even if they do, they often don't seek treatment.
Fungal nail infections, or onychomycosis, can persist for years. Even relatively mild cases can leave nails looking discolored and unhealthy. Severe cases can leave nails looking badly discolored, thickened, and gnarled. They can also smell badly.
Nail fungus is extremely contagious! It can easily spread to other toenails, the skin, and even the fingernails not to mention the toes of friends and loved ones.
Until now, nail fungus has been extremely difficult to treat because the diseased cells live under the nail surface. The nail itself acts as a barrier that prevents lotions, creams, and other treatment options from ever reaching the diseased cells.
Lasers work because they have a unique property: the laser light can easily penetrate the nail surface where it can attack the fungus cells.
The laser is able to kill the fungus because it uses certain light wavelengths that are known to disrupt the metabolism of the fungal cells. Once their metabolism has been thrown off, the fungal cells die. Meanwhile, healthy skin and tissues cells are left unharmed.
