Twin Rivers Laser Treatment for Toenail Fungus
Laser treatment for toenail fungus is a simple procedure that can make your feet look ready for summer flip-flops and open-toed sandals. At Twin Rivers Podiatry Easton, we can schedule an appointment to discuss your treatment options.
Understanding Toenail Fungus
Toenail fungus, also referred to as onychomycosis, can also spread to the fingernails. It’s generally caused by heavy foot perspiration, poor ventilation or exposure to damp areas like gyms and locker rooms. At Twin Rivers Podiatry, we know that toenail fungus can also cause pain and odor, and that’s where we can help.
Using Laser Treatment For Toenail Fungus
At Twin Rivers, we use a precisely directed laser to help eliminate the fungus without damaging the surrounding tissue. This safe technology is also used in cataract surgeries, for hair removal and during some dental work. It is FDA approved, and it’s been extremely effective for past clients. This laser treatment is virtually painless, and after the procedure, you’ll experience no downtime from your normal daily activities.
Preventing Toenail Fungus
After your treatment, we provide you with the information you need to keep your feet healthy and happy. To prevent the fungus from growing back, be sure to keep your toes and feet clean and dry, especially after swimming and bathing. The doctor also recommends you wear shoes or sandals in locker rooms or public showers. If your feet tend to sweat, change your socks during the middle of the day, and use anti-fungal spray or powder in your shoes to prevent any new growth. If you notice any pain or discomfort with your feet, it’s a good idea to schedule an appointment for a regular foot checkup with Dr. Kaplan, who can diagnose any problems and provide assistance.
