Laser Treatment for Nail Fungus
The most common cause of brittle yellowing nails is fungal toenail infection. Over 35 million Americans have fungal toenail infections. Fungi are dermatophytes that feed on nail keratin. These organisms grow in a warm, dark and moist environment. There is no better place for nail fungus to reside and infect toenails than in shoes. Infected toenails have yellowing or white spots on the nails, and as the infection develops, nails will get thicker, further discolor and fracture – Pain may or may not be present. Progressive infection of additional nails is also very common.
For years, topical solutions were used to treat toenail fungus with success. Then, oral medications were developed which had greater efficacy, but had more side effects. Laser treatment for toenail fungus is the newest technique to treat toenail fungus, and both physicians and patients have been found to be very satisfied with the results.
