Treating nail fungus with laser treatments
Are your toenails thickened, brittle and dull? If so, you may be one of the many White Plains residents currently dealing with toenail fungus. Chances are you want to get rid of your toenail fungus as soon as possible. Read on to learn more about this common condition as well as how Eric Peters, D.P.M., PC, DABPS, FACFAS can help you get rid of your unsightly toenail fungus once and for all with laser treatment.
What is Toenail Fungus?
Toenail fungus is a common fungal infection that affects the toenail below the surface. The condition is not typically dangerous, but it can be unsightly. If your toenails have been affected by toenail fungus, they may become thick, brittle or crumbly. They may also look dull or discolored.
How Can Dr. Peters Help Me?
Treating toenail fungus isn't always easy. While the condition typically occurs close to the surface of the nail, most topical treatments are not able to penetrate the nail very easily, and as a result, it is not uncommon for topical treatments to take several months or even a year in order to be effective.
Thankfully, a new and promising treatment is now available to White Plains residents: laser treatment for toenail fungus. While additional study still needs to be done on this exciting new treatment option, many people have seen success with this light-based therapy already and you could be next.
Laser treatments for toenail fungus don't involve any harsh chemicals, they don't hurt, and they don't require any downtime. In fact, they may be just the solution you need!
If you are tired of having unsightly toenails due to toenail fungus, get the treatment you need once and for all. Call Dr. Peters in White Plains and ask how laser treatment can help you get rid of your toenail fungus for good.
