Until a while ago the treatment for nail fungus was only with medication that can negatively effect the liver function and some require monthly blood tests. Now laser is a safe effective alternative.
What Does Nail Fungus Look Like?
Fungal infections can cause the nails to become discolored, thick, yellow, incurved, and can possibly cause the nail to break away from the nail bed. This can lead to a gap between the nail plate and the nail bed that allows for dirt, bacteria, germs, and fungus to live under the toenail and breed. Occasionally this can lead to odor as well.
Nail Fungus is a common problem that can effect the nail and cuticle of the hands and feet. This embarrassing condition is not really talked about but it effects millions of people.
Laser For Nail Fungus
I mentioned earlier that options for nail fungus treatment in the past have included topical creams or oral medications but these may effect liver function. But now there is another procedure we can do to treat those yellow thick nails – LASER!
The laser wavelength is so precise that it only targets the nail fungus infected area without damaging any surrounding tissue. This toenail fungus laser treatment also has a higher success rate then topical and oral treatments and without the risk of liver problems.
About The Toenail Laser Rental Treatment
The procedure takes less then 30 minutes for both feet and your patients will feel a warming sensation on the nails being treated. We have seen best results after 3-5 nail fungus treatments 4-6 weeks apart. In most cases your patient will have healthy nails, free from toenail fungus in 9 -12 months because of the growth time of the nail.
What To Think About
There is not much to worry about with this no downtime procedure. Before the treatment, you must remove all nail polish. We can not treat artificial nails, and if you have gel manicure/pedicure you must have it professionally removed before getting this treatment.
Immediately after the procedure, nail polish can be reapplied and you can go back to your daily activities.
So if you have clients with unwanted toenail fungus you know what laser to rent to treat those conditions. Contact SBLR Inc. and let us educate you on how to offer this effective procedure at your practice.
