How Common is Toenail Fungus?

Millions of Americans suffer from onychomycosis, better known as toenail fungus. This problem can be chronic for many people, and it can be extremely embarrassing. Many people refuse to wear sandals or open-toe shoes due to toenail fungus. Fortunately, today's medical advances have provided a highly effective treatment option.

How is Toenail Fungus Treated?

Laser treatment is the treatment of choice for toenail fungus today. In the past, treatment involved either costly oral medication or topical ointments. Both options can have significant side effects, so laser treatment for toenail fungus was developed in an effort to find a more effective treatment.

How Does the Toenail Fungus Laser Work?

The toenail fungus laser uses highly concentrated laser light to access and destroy the fungus around and underneath the toenail. The fungus is specifically targeted while the healthy skin is left intact. Once the toenail fungus treatment is complete, the discolored toenail will grow out over time. Most people will see their healthy new nails, with no sign of the fungus, by around the three-month mark post-treatment.

What Does Toenail Fungus Laser Treatment Feel Like?

The laser light treatment is not painful. Patients may notice a mild warming sensation due to the laser heat, and in rare cases, patients may notice a slight stinging feeling for a brief moment during the laser treatment. Since the patient won't feel any pain, there is no need for anesthesia during a laser treatment for toenail fungus.

How Long Does it Take to Treat Toenail Fungus?

Laser treatment of toenail fungus is generally quite fast. Most appointments are 30 minutes or less, and the majority of people need only one or two sessions to resolve toenail fungus.

What are the Aftercare Instructions for Toenail Fungus Laser Treatment?

Patients can return to their usual routine immediately after treatment. Patients can wear shoes right after treatment and can even get pedicures if desired.
