Treating toenail fungus at home can be a very frustrating experience. You carefully paint the topical medication on your toenail night after toenail fungusnight, yet the problem never improves. Laser treatment offers a much better way to end this ailment for good. Your  Reston, Fairfax, Ashburn and Mclean, VA, podiatrists at The Laser Nail Centers are here to share some important information about this innovative toenail fungus cure.

Drugstore products are often ineffective

Over-the-counter toenail products don't often work because they can't penetrate your nail to reach the fungus growing on your nail bed. In some cases, even if you notice a slight improvement, the problem eventually worsens because all of the fungus isn't killed. If you have a particularly stubborn case of toenail fungus, even prescription oral medications may not resolve your problem. Unfortunately, oral medications can also cause some unpleasant side effects, such as nausea and diarrhea.

Laser nail treatment gets to the source of the problem

Laser nail treatment kills toenail fungus in just one treatment. The fungus that lives on your toe contains pigments that discolor your nail. When laser light reaches the pigments, the resulting heat kills the fungus. Your doctor carefully aims the light to target the fungus and avoid damaging healthy tissue.

Laser treatment takes 30 to 45 minutes and has no unpleasant side effects. When the laser is aimed at your toe, you may notice that it feels a little warm. You may also feel a slight pinprick situation during treatment. Luckily, these symptoms are very mild and end when the treatment ends.

When will notice results?

Although the toenail fungus will be killed during your treatment, you won't notice the results immediately. As your toenail begins to grow, you'll notice that a healthier portion of the nail appears at the bottom of your nail. Eventually, the discolored portion of your nail will grow out, and your nail will be completely free of any signs of the fungus.
