What is Nail Fungus?
Nail fungus occurs when fungi, such as dermatophytes or yeast, invade the nails, typically starting at the edge or tip and gradually spreading deeper into the nail bed. This fungal infection can affect both toenails and fingernails, leading to discoloration, thickening, and distortion of the nail.
Symptoms of Nail Fungus
Recognizing the signs and symptoms of nail fungus is essential for early diagnosis and treatment. Common symptoms of nail fungus include:
- Discoloration: Infected nails may appear yellow, brown, or white, often accompanied by dark spots or streaks.
- Thickening: Fungal infection can cause nails to become thickened, making them difficult to trim and prone to crumbling or brittleness.
- Distortion: Nails may become misshapen or distorted, losing their smooth, uniform appearance.
- Brittleness: Infected nails may become brittle or crumbly, leading to pain or discomfort, especially when walking or wearing shoes.
- Separation: The nail may separate from the nail bed, creating a gap where debris and fungus can accumulate.
- Odor: In some cases, nail fungus can cause a foul odor, particularly when the infection becomes severe or spreads to surrounding tissues.
Cutting-Edge Laser Technology
Our NeoElite laser system delivers laser energy at the 1064nm wavelength with optimum sub-millisecond pulse duration, allowing it to penetrate through the nail and into the nail matrix. This deep-heating laser modality targets the soft tissue beneath the toenail, effectively superheating and coagulating the infected tissue without causing harm to surrounding areas.
Why Choose Laser Treatment?
- Precision: Laser therapy precisely targets the infected part of the toenail, ensuring effective treatment while sparing healthy tissue.
- No Pharmaceuticals: Unlike oral medications or topical ointments, laser treatment requires no pharmaceuticals, minimizing the risk of side effects and drug interactions.
- Expert Care: Our board-certified podiatrists at Austin Foot & Ankle Center are highly trained and experienced in treating toenail fungus using cutting-edge laser technology, providing you with the highest level of care and expertise.
How Laser Treatment Works
Onychomycosis, or toenail fungus, is notoriously difficult to treat, affecting millions of people in the United States. Laser treatment targets the fungal infection beneath the nail, effectively killing the fungus while leaving surrounding tissue unharmed. The result? Clearer, healthier nails without the need for invasive procedures or prolonged medication regimens.
