What is Nail Fungus?

The first thing that most people notice of fungal nail infection is discoloration. Then changes in nail texture usually follow. At Laser Nail Therapy, our highly trained and specialized doctors can effectively diagnose and treat all types of fungal nail infections. Most patients seeking help have already tried using most of the over-the-counter available medications and realized that they don’t work. Since fungus is so difficult to eliminate with at-home remedies, laser treatments may be the best option. Additionally, if it’s not a fungal infection then our doctors can let you know how you should proceed and what other options for treatment are available.

Do I need Toenail Fungus Treatment?

First, if you think you might have a toenail fungus infection, it’s best to get it examined by a professional. Second, you may also try to do a little self-examination and comparison to rule out that it’s not discoloration from nail polish or a bruise. These are some of the common properties of a toenail fungus infection:

  • Toenail Discoloration
  • Crumbling and/or thinning of the toenails
  • The cheese-like smell coming from toenails
  • Thickening of the toenails, making them hard to cut

Lastly, it is important to seek professional help once you’ve tried some of the at-home remedies and they were proven to be ineffective. Additionally, all of our doctors at Laser Nail Therapy will be able to provide you with the best treatment plan to get rid of your toenail fungus. This will not only improve the appearance of your nails but also your confidence!

How does the Laser for Toenail Fungus work?

The doctor will go over each of your nails with the laser light in a grid pattern. The laser light wavelength targets the fungus, causing the fungus to die due to heat damage. Since the laser light targets the fungus under the nails it will not hurt the nail or surrounding tissue. The treatment is very safe and not invasive.

How soon will I see results after Laser Toenail Fungus Treatment in Jacksonville, FL?

The laser kills the fungus inside and underneath the nails but patients have to wait until the nails grow out to see full results. And as you already might be aware, nail growth takes a long time and toenail fungus usually inhibits the growth speed. It normally takes six to nine months for your toenail to be clear again.

May I use insurance to pay for Toenail Fungus Laser Treatment?

Currently, the laser treatment for toenail fungus is not covered by insurance. This is because insurance companies consider it to be an aesthetic procedure.  However, if you have a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or a Health Savings Account (HSA) you may use those. Additionally, our doctors offer an interest-free payment plan to help with the cost of the treatment.
