Normally fungal infections start with small fungus spores getting through a small crack in the skin of your toes. As the infection progresses the symptoms will become more severe as well. You may first start to see nail discoloration. Then, the nails may start to become extremely brittle, start lifting from the nail bed, and also become very thick. As the symptoms become more severe, they make it difficult to perform daily activities. Thick fungal nails may cause pain when wearing shoes and make it difficult to manicure your feet.

Our doctors always stress to all patients to take precautions to avoid getting the infection in the first place. It is important to keep your feet clean and dry. Wash your feet daily with soap and water. Make sure that you get in between the toes. Also, it is very important to dry your feet well after washing them. when cutting toenails, make sure you use clean tools and cut nails straight across. And always wear shoes when walking around public areas.

Laser Treatment for Toenail Fungus

At Laser Nail Therapy, we use the PinPointe™ laser for toenail fungus problems. This treatment is helpful for patients who have stubborn toenail fungus. It treats discolored, cracked, or very sick toenails. This treatment gives you healthy feet once again.

Our doctors are all board-certified foot specialists trained in all areas of the foot and ankle and specifically laser treatments for toenail fungus.

Other treatments like topical solutions and oral medication are not as effective. Topical solutions have an extremely low cure rate. This is because the solution does not penetrate all the way through the nail bed.  This is because it can lead to liver toxicity. You would need to have consistent blood tests throughout the course of taking the medication. 

Our nail doctor in Arlington, TX recommends this treatment for toenail fungus. The PinPointe Laser treatment has the highest cure rate in the market. It has no side effects and no recovery period. As a result, you can go about your daily activities right after the treatment. Also, there’s no pain.
