How your podiatrists in Reston, Fairfax, Ashburn and Mclean, VA can treat your toenail fungus

You shouldn’t have to hide your feet because of unsightly toenail fungus. Your podiatrists in Reston, Fairfax, Ashburn and Mclean, toenail fungusVA want to help you get rid of toenail fungus for good and enjoy wearing sandals again! There are many effective treatments for toenail fungus. Your podiatrists at The Laser Nail Centers want to share with you the modern, state-of-the-art treatments to get rid of toenail fungus.

Toenail fungus thrives in warm, moist areas like public pools and public showers. It usually starts as a small white or yellow spot underneath your nail. It grows as it burrows deeper underneath your nail. You can recognize the signs and symptoms of toenail fungus easily. Your podiatrists want you to look for toenails that are:

  • Thickened, yellowed or darkened
  • Oddly shaped, distorted or bent
  • Brittle, crumbly or ragged
  • Separated from the nail bed
  • Foul smelling

If you think you might have toenail fungus, the best thing to do is visit our office right away. They offer highly effective laser treatment using the revolutionary PinPointe Foot Laser. The light from PinPointe laser is absorbed by the fungi, creating heat which destroys the fungi infecting your nail. Laser nail treatment is safe, with no side effects; it only targets the fungi, not your soft tissue, so treatment is comfortable. You won’t need to be numb. Laser nail therapy also helps to stimulate new, healthy nail growth.

In addition to laser therapy, there are several effective treatments your podiatrists can recommend including prescription strength oral or topical antifungal medication and debridement to remove the unhealthy debris under your toenail. In severe cases that don’t respond to other treatments, they may recommend surgical removal of the infected nail to permit a healthy new nail to grow.
