Also known as nail fungus, onychomycosis refers to a fungal infection that causes your nail to exhibit white or yellow spots under the tip of your toenail. As the infection worsens, your nail might discolor, thicken, and even crumble at the edges.
In some cases, onychomycosis doesn’t require treatment. However, this is only the case if the fungal infection is mild and causes no pain. You should seek medical attention the moment it causes pain or when you notice that your toenail has thickened.
A wart refers to a small growth or patch of raised, bumpy skin. Warts can be unsightly, uncomfortable, and even painful.
Warts form when a viral infection called human papillomavirus (HPV) comes in contact with your skin. The most common types of warts treated by podiatrists are plantar warts, which usually occur on weight-bearing parts of your foot.
The team at City Podiatry uses AerolaseⓇ laser technology to treat infected nails by passing light over the affected area until the fungus or viral infection is eliminated.
Laser nail treatments are generally performed in 10 minutes or less, using deep heating power to get rid of the damage on your nail in a painless and noninvasive manner. Through pulses of light energy, the laser effectively acts as an antifungal agent that forces your body to reject the microbe.
The heat from the laser not only eliminates the damage, but also triggers an immune response in your body that pushes it to grow clean nails. You should expect to notice conclusive results within 10-12 weeks of treatment.
The team at City Podiatry also uses laser nail treatment to eliminate the appearance of scars. Using the same technique, the light targets the scar tissue and triggers your body’s healing process, creating new healthy tissue as a result. City Podiatry accepts cash payments for this quick treatment.
If you think you’ve suffered from a fungal infection or have noticed warts on your nails that simple oral medication can’t fix, laser treatment might be the treatment you’ve been looking for to restore the health of your nails.
