Nail fungus is a common condition that begins as a white or yellow spot under the tip of your fingernail or toenail. As the fungal infection goes deeper, nail fungus may cause your nail to discolor, thicken and crumble at the edge. It can affect several nails.
If your condition is mild and not bothering you, you may not need treatment. If your nail fungus is painful and has caused thickened nails, self-care steps and medications may help. But even if treatment is successful, nail fungus often comes back.
You may have nail fungus if one or more of your nails are:
- Whitish to yellow-brown discoloration
- Brittle, crumbly or ragged
- Distorted in shape
- A dark color, caused by debris building up under your nail
- Smellling slightly foul
- Nail fungus can affect fingernails, but it’s more common in toenails.
Toenail fungus laser treatment is fast, effective, and produces impressive results when compared to alternative treatments. Patients can expect to experience:
- Minimal to no pain
- No harm to the nail or surrounding skin
- No analgesia required
- No unpleasant side effects
- Quick recovery time
- Suitable for all ages
In fact, PinPointe studies of past patients reported 71.4% experienced continuous improvement as the toenail continued to grow out. The treatment has also been approved in Europe by the European Union under a CE mark and in the United States by the Federal Drug Administration. How quickly the new, clear nails grow out depends on the severity of the toenail fungal infection. Nail fungus can irritate and hurt you if not taken care of very well. Knowing that you can get rid of Toenail fungus without losing your whole toenail is great. You will be able to go get the pedicure that you want and be able to rock those new pair of heels that you bought.
