Dont Hide Your Toenails This Summer
If you are one of the millions of Americans who suffer with chronic, disfiguring toenail fungus infection, there is new hope for you. In the past the only treatment options available to patients with this condition were topical anti fungal medications which don't usually cure the problem or pill anti fungal medications which can have potential serious side effects. A new treatment using innovative laser technology has been shown to be effective at eliminating this frustrating problem, without any significant side effects. The doctors at Atlantic Foot and Ankle Specialists have used this treatment for several years with excellent results. We offer the latest laser technology to give our patients the best results possible.
The laser uses a wavelength of energy that has been scientifically shown to kill fungus without harming human skin or nails. The treatment is quick, painless and does not require any injections or anesthesia. Laser treatment has been shown to be an effective, safe and reliable treatment option. A series of treatments is required for most patients and clearer nail growth may be seen after 3 months. The growth of a new toenail may take from 6 months to up to a year.
Patients who need to have a normal appearing nails now may consider the keriflex nail restoration system. This new technique offers immediate improvement in the appearance of nails damaged by fungus. The technology involves the removal of a portion of the damaged nail with application of an acrylic nail fused to the nail bed using a special frequency of ultraviolet light.
