Onychomycosis, or fungal infection of nails is most common on the toes and affects over a large number of men and women. In its mild forms, nail fungus is a cosmetic problem, but over time it can cause toenails to grow abnormally and become painful when walking.
Common findings and patient complaints associated with nail fungus are:
Discolored nails, yellow or brown streaks under the nail, yellow nails, brown nails, thickened or distorted nails, brittle or crumbly nails, nails separated from the underlying skin, streaks on the surface of the nail, peeling cuticles and a ragged appearance of the skin around the nail.
Laser Nail Fungus treatment is noninvasive, fast and painless. There is no recovery time. The laser used for the treatment is able to penetrate the nail itself, which allows it to reach down into the fungus and to destroy it. The results of Laser Nail Fungus treatment are the elimination of the symptoms of onychomycosis. This means that the nail returns to its healthy appearance, having its clarity, smooth texture and strength.
