If you notice any of the following changes in your nails you may have nail fungus:
The technical name for nail fungus is Onychomycosis. There are many different species of fungus that can cause Onychomycosis and once an infection develops it can be difficult, if not impossible, to get rid of. Nails infected with fungus tend to grow slowly as the infection becomes embedded within the nail bed. While unsightly, it is often ignored because the infection can exist for many years without causing pain. It affects men more than women and, left untreated, can result in loss of the nail.
It tends to run in families because it's contagious!
Until recently the only effective treatment involved oral medications that took months to be effective and presented many potential side effects including liver damage. To add insult to injury, these medications often didn’t work. The fungus frequently came back. The medication you’ve seen advertised is a breakthrough because it is a topical solution that doesn’t involve the serious health risks of the oral medications. On the flip side of the coin, it is a pricey medication and the success is not guaranteed. Side effects include skin irritation around the nail, redness, itching, burning and potential blistering. After first filing the surface of the nail the solution is applied like a nail polish. This must be done daily for several months until healthy nail growth is apparent. I don’t know about you but that sounds like a lot of work to me. I’m not sure I could be that dedicated. If you think you have nail fungus, aks you doctor. If you do I have some really good news for you!
Nail fungus can be eradicated with lasers!
Skinpossible offers a laser treatment known as Clearsteps™ that can get rid of nail fungus. Clearsteps allows us to gently apply just enough bulk heating at the perfect depth within the nail bed to kill the fungus. A series of quick, safe treatments has proven effective at killing nail fungus on the toes and on the fingers!
It’s best to treat nail fungus in the early stages before the nail starts to crumble or twist. Left untreated, nail fungus will always get worse and will never go away by itself. The laser treatment can kill fungus at any stage and the sooner you get started the sooner you will have healthy nails.
A series of four treatments performed one to four weeks apart will eliminate the fungus for good! If you wish, nail polish may be worn between treatments and removed before arriving for treatment. There is no need to do any daily nail care between treatments but, unfortunately, the fungus could be inside your shoes which could re-infect the nails. An inexpensive medical device known as a Sterishoe insert can be placed inside of all existing shoes to kill the nail fungus. Lasers work well! In fact, if all treatments are completed on a timely schedule (within a 2 month period) and Sterishoes are properly used, we guarantee results. If any sign of nail fungus returns within a year we will retreat without charge!
The ability to eradicate this unsightly condition with lasers is a breakthrough for those suffering from nail fungus! If you doctor has diagnosed you with Onychomycosis call and schedule a telephone consultation to learn more about Clearsteps, the laser treatment for nail fungus.
