Laser Nail Fungus
Nail fungus or onychomycosis is a commonly occurring condition characterized by white or yellow spots under the fingernail tips or toenails. The fungal infection can quickly spread deep within the nail if not treated in a timely fashion. It can result in conspicuous cosmetic concerns. Oral or topical anti-fungal medications may not do anything more than providing temporary relief. Nail fungus may also recur after such treatments.
You can get rid of nail fungus with laser treatment at a qualified med spa. The treatment has minimal risk of recurrence and is safe and effective. However, the treatment should only be performed by experts under the supervision of experienced physicians.
Fotona’s ClearSteps Onychomycosis Treatment
This is a cutting edge treatment involving the power of laser energy for treating nail fungus. Controlled laser beams in this treatment are used for penetrating the infected nail and skin tissue. It provides even heating throughout the targeted area. Parasitic fungi are eliminated by heat energy that may create the nail infection.
Laser treatment process at the same time promotes natural immunity and growth factors that activate the nail and restore it to its original appearance and health. Onychomycosis treatment helps in creating long lasting effects. It is more effective than oral and topical treatments. It also avoids side effects at the same time that are often associated with oral drugs for fungal infections.
Laser Treatment vs. Other Options
Laser med spa treatments are known to be more effective as compared to other methods of treating onychomycosis. The infection can be treated with oral antifungals and topical antifungal medications. There is prescription as well as over the counter options.
Systemic side effects can be caused by oral antifungals which are really not completely effective in curing onychomycosis. Topical treatments are generally safe, but not that effective. Laser is the most successful option for treating nail fungus.
