What Is Nail Fungus?

Nail fungus is a chronic disease, and this condition can impact anyone's quality of life.  Getting rid of nail fungus is difficult because the infection has seeded itself underneath the nail and breads deep beneath the nail bed, which makes it impossible for topical creams and ointments to reach and destroy the infection.  Moreover, nail fungal infections can lead to serious health problems for individuals with diabetes or immune disorders. 

Additionally, treatments such as, medicated nail polishes, prescription topical creams and ointments, and prescribed oral medications can cause severe side effects which may be associated liver problems from drug interactions.  Home remedies such as using bleach, vinegar, mouthwash, or household cleaners to resolve the problem are often tried but, ultimately fail.

Is Nail Fungus A Bacteria Or A Virus?

No.  Nail Fungus is neither a virus nor is it a bacteria.  It is however a plant fungi, which reproduces the same way as Dandelions do.  The fungi is speed by the aerial proliferation of its spores or buds which is why nail fungus is so difficult to treat.

Here's How Laser Nail Fungus Treatments Work

Here at the Naples Nail Fungus Center, we treat the infected nail with our Laser by applying its energy directly over the nail.  The Laser's wavelength is absorbed though the nail and sent deep beneath the nail into the nail bed and kills the underlying fungus with the heat of the laser light.

Once the fungus is destroyed in both the nail and nail bed, the tissue is revitalized, and the ratification of the nail fungal infection promotes the body's ability to encourage new, clear, and fungal free healthy nail growth.

Do you Suffer From Unwanted Embarrassing Nail Fungus?

There's no need to suffer any longer.  Laser Nail Fungus Treatments are safe and effective.  Laser Fungus Treatments are an in-office procedure which is pain free, does not have any unwanted or harmful side effects, and will not cause any downtime whatsoever.

Both Fingernail Fungus and Toenail Fungus Laser Treatments typically take approximately 15 to 30 minutes to complete, depending on the amount of nails that need to be treated, and the severity of the nail fungal infection.

Fungal Infections of the toenail (onychomycoses) are typically chronic and persistent.  There is no absolute guaranteed cure for all cases.  We have found that serial laser treatments have been the most effective and predictable modality available, it is not however, a guaranteed permanent cure for all cases.

The key to ensuring your chances of successfully curing a nail fungus infection is quite simple, and depends on several things.  The first is the severity of the nail fungal infection.  The second is the individuals willingness to commit themselves to the nail fungal treatments.

Simply trying to treat the infection a couple of times is futile, and will ultimately lead to the reinfection of the nail bed once again.  The recurrence of nail fungus infections is extremely common.  Studies have shown that 20 percent of individuals will experience a recurrence of nail fungus infections as a result of not following through with their laser nail treatment regimen.

Laser nail fungus treatments should be repeated every 4 to 6 weeks until the nail fungus infection has been completely eradicated, and the nail is clear and free from the fungal infection.  Once the nail fungus has been eliminated, there is no guarantee that the individual will be free from other infestation.
