What treatments are available for nail fungus?

Houston's High Tech Podiatrist uses the Fotona Laser to treat nail fungus in Houston, TX

Your choices for fungal nail treatments used to be medicated creams or polishes that didn’t work because they couldn’t get under the nail where the fungi lived, or oral medications that worked better but required testing to make sure they weren’t damaging your liver. Not great options, so it’s no wonder we are all excited about the advances in laser therapy for nail fungus.

Treatment is simple—we just move a device over the toes that directs concentrated light beams to pinpoint the fungus under the nail and destroy it. It is quick (under a half hour), painless (we give you a way to cool any excessive warmth you may feel), and has no known side effects.

Laser treatment is also effective. We keep abreast of the latest technology available and provide the best for our patients. About 8 out of 10 patients get good results, without the risks of oral medication (which is effective about 60% of the time). Less risk, better results. Isn’t it time for you to schedule your free initial consultation and explore this new treatment? You can reach Parker Foot & Ankle in Houston at (281) 497-2850.
