Nail Fungus Treatment Miami

Treat Nail Fungus Infections

Laser Treatment is Quick and Effective

Nail fungus can affect many of us, even the cleanest of all. The infection can begin as a white or yellow spot under the fingernail or toenail. It can then begin to spread deeper into the nail, which may cause the nail to lose its color, become thicker, and develop crumbling edges. If left untreated for too long, the picture gets more complicated.

Treatment depends on the severity of your condition and the type of fungus causing it. When treating nail fungus with a laser for photodynamic therapy, the heat will irradiate the nail, resulting in the gradual elimination of the fungus. While there are over-the-counter antifungal nail creams and ointments most of them are not very effective, and oral medications can affect other organs in the body. Thus, laser nail fungus treatment is an effective method relatively free of unwanted side effects.

Frequently Asked Questions About Nail Fungus Treatment

What are the benefits of Nail Fungus treatment?

The benefits include:

  • Quick treatment sessions:
    Laser treatments for nail fungus are quicker than traditional methods like topical creams or oral medications. They typically last only minutes per session, and fewer sessions are generally needed.
  • Painless procedure:
    Laser treatments are non-invasive and mostly painless. They precisely target the fungus without affecting the nail or nearby tissue. Some patients might feel mild warmth, but it’s easily tolerated without anesthesia.
  • Effective reduction or elimination of nail fungus:
    Lasers emit light energy absorbed by the fungus, effectively destroying it. This leads to healthier nail regrowth. Many patients have seen clear nails post-treatment, as supported by clinical studies.
  • Minimal unwanted side effects compared to oral medications:
    While oral antifungals can cause side effects like liver damage or skin rashes, laser treatments primarily have localized side effects, such as temporary redness. They don’t carry the systemic risks associated with oral medications.
How Does Nail Fungus or Onychomycosis Occur?

Nail fungus or Onychomycosis is a result of a fungal infection of the nail. It is common in adults and occurs due to various causes including artificial nails, manicuring, age, diabetes, immunodeficiency, vascular diseases, nail trauma, hyperhidrosis (excessive sweat), and poor hygiene. It can spread through direct contact with infected nails or indirectly via objects like nail files.

What is Nail Fungus treatment?

Nail Fungus Treatment aims to eradicate fungal infection in the nails. There are several treatments available, but one of the most effective methods is the laser nail fungus treatment. This modern technique uses lasers to kill the fungus living in and under the nail without damaging the nail or surrounding skin.

How often should I get Nail Fungus treatment?

The frequency of the treatment may vary depending on the severity of the infection. Multiple weekly sessions might be required for optimal results. It’s best to consult with a specialist to determine the appropriate treatment plan.

Are there different types of Nail Fungus treatment?

Yes, there are various treatments including topical, oral, and laser treatments. While topical and oral treatments often come with side effects and might take longer to produce results, laser nail fungus treatment has been shown to produce successful results relatively quickly.

What precautions should I take after getting the treatment?

After getting the treatment, you should:

  • Keep your nails short, dry, and clean.
  • Avoid going barefoot in public places.
  • Wash hands after touching an infected nail.
  • Avoid trimming or picking the skin around your nails.
  • Use antifungal sprays or powders as recommended.
Does Nail Fungus Treatment Hurt?

Laser nail fungus treatment is relatively painless. However, some patients might experience a warm sensation. It is non-invasive and doesn’t harm the nail or surrounding tissue.

How can I prevent a recurrence of nail fungus?

Preventive measures include:

  • Maintaining good hand and foot hygiene.
  • Wearing breathable socks and shoes.
  • Avoiding walking barefoot in public places.
  • Choosing reputable manicure and pedicure salons.
  • Avoiding nail polish and artificial nails.
  • Using antifungal products as preventive measures.
I have allergies and other concerns. Can I still do the treatment?

If you have allergies or other health concerns, it is crucial to consult with a dermatologist or specialist before undergoing any treatment.

I've known Rosanna since she was first starting her business over a decade ago! She had a small office in a hospital & was doing laser hair removal & being a mom to her kiddos. I had tried 2-3 other laser hair removal specialists before her & none of them worked. Her laser hair removal was the first time it actually worked! I am thrilled with the results!
