Laser Treatment for Fungal Nails – Is it Painful?

Comments (0)

Are you someone who loves scary stories around the campfire told by the glow of a flashlight?  You can feed your need for fear this fall by checking out The New Haven Ghost Walk, taking place on weekends through December 29th, 2013 in New Haven, CT. Listen to accounts of centuries past, legendary tales, folklore and a bit of the history of the community.

Something else that can be quite frightening for some people is a fungal toenail infection. This common toenail problem can start out small, as a tiny spot on your nail but develop into an unsightly problem that could match your scary Halloween costume. Nails can become discolored, brittle and have a foul odor. The good news we want to share today is that we can help! We offer our patients a laser treatment that is fast, effective, and is painless!

How does the laser treatment work?

This treatment involves the use of a laser beam of light that passes through your nail, targets the fungus, and destroys it. The laser does not damage your nail at all or harm the surrounding skin. It can take up to three treatments to completely kill the fungal infection, but the result will be clear, strong, and healthy nails. The reason our patients love this treatment is that they can come in the office, walk out and go right back to work. Some patients describe feeling a warming sensation during the procedure but there is no pain involved at all and no side effects.

Have you been living with ugly toenails? An infection can continue to worsen and there is no reason to live with pain or have to hide your nails. Contact Dr. Sanjay Patel at Family Foot Care & Surgery today and find out how our laser treatment can cure your fungal problems once and for all. Call our office in Milford, CT at (203) 876-7736 or in Hamden, CT at (203) 288-4055.
