Toenail Fungus (Onychomycosis)

Toenail fungus, also known as Onychomycosis, is a common fungal infection of the toenail. It grows beneath the nail, causing it to thicken and discolor. As the infection progresses, the nail may become brittle and break or pull away from the toe. It is generally not painful, although if left untreated, the nail tends to thicken and deform causing inflammation or infection of the skin around the nail. If that occurs, walking or even wearing shoes could become difficult.

It is common in wet, warm damp places like:

  • Public pools and showers.
  • Closed shoes.
  • Nail salons that reuse or do not sterilize instruments and basins between clients can inadvertently spread fungus from one client to another.

Overall? Moist unsanitized conditions encourage fungus growth.  But you are not alone!

Now, with the new FDA approved Nuvolase PinPointe FootLasertreatment, it is easy, quick and affordable to treat your fingernail or toenail fungus.

The FootLaser is specifically designed to treat toenail fungus, unlike the multi-use lasers found at many medical aesthetics spas. And unlike topical treatments or oral medications, the Nuvolase PinPointe Laser™ treatment has no side effects.

At Laser Nail Centers, we recommend treating all ten toes due to the contagious nature of Onychomycosis. It is the treatment recommendation that is typically the most effective and affordable over the long term. 

And unlike some treatment centers, we provide a complimentary initial consultation with specially trained doctors that will properly diagnose your condition. As physicians, our doctors have a full array of treatment options available.

Although health insurance does not cover the laser treatment since it is considered cosmetic, we do have several payment options so please call for details.
