Leveraging the latest laser technology, we can treat your fungus at its source, helping you get healthy toenails as quickly as possible. If you’re living with nail fungus, don’t hesitate to visit us for treatment. 

Do you really need to visit a doctor to deal with nail fungus? It depends — but let’s dig deeper so you can better understand your specific situation.

Treating nail fungus at home

Many people with nail fungus avoid a doctor’s visit. They think they can treat it at home, trying everything from baking soda to cream for yeast infections. After all, with many over-the-counter creams and ointments available, you have plenty of options to get rid of your nail problems at home, right?

Maybe. These topical treatments can be effective if they reach the fungus. But the problem is that toenail fungus usually starts under your nail, and these treatments can’t penetrate the nail to reach the source of your problem. That can mean weeks of trying messy creams only to see no results at all. 

On top of this, because toenail fungus can be contagious, the whole time you’re living with your nail condition, you risk passing it on to others. 

Fortunately, we offer a way to nip the problem in the bud.

Laser therapy for nail fungus

Here at Neosculpt Laser Vein & Cosmetic Surgery Center, we specialize in using laser technology to deliver the best treatments available today to our patients. And that includes treatment for nail fungus. 

With our innovative laser therapy for nail fungus, we can direct laser energy through your nail, targeting the fungus under your toenail. This allows us to kill the fungus at its source, stopping it in its tracks with a treatment that takes just minutes. 

If you’re in the early phases of your fungal infection, we may be able to completely eradicate the fungus with just one laser therapy treatment. If the fungus has been thriving under your nail for a while, particularly if it has thickened your toenail, repeat sessions might be required to fully kill the fungus.

Talk with our team. We can customize a treatment plan to bring you clear, healthy nails as quickly as possible. Call Neosculpt Laser Vein & Cosmetic Surgery Center or request your appointment online today.
