Many people suffer from common infections of the foot. With more winter months ahead, there is an increased likelihood of contracting a fungal infection under the nails, which usually goes unnoticed in its early stages. The infection can quickly spread onto other toenails causing them to become thick, brittle, discolored, crumbly, or loose.
The fungus is notorious for not responding to treatments as it sits comfortably under the nail bed and out of reach. Fortunately, treatment for fungal toenails has come a long way, particularly after the development of new technologies. Today, Dr. John C. Marzano at Westchester Podiatric Medicine, P.C., in Yonkers, NY, is sharing information regarding a new, innovative laser treatment called the PinPointe Foot Laser.
What Is PinPointe Foot Laser Treatment?
As the name suggests, this state-of-the-art technology uses a laser to target and eradicate the fungus living deep under and in the nail. The device emits a laser beam that imparts heat to the infected area without damaging any surrounding tissue. The treatment is FDA approved and has no harmful side effects (unlike traditional therapies). This new technology provides people a safer, faster, and more effective way to eliminate fungal toenails. It yields an 85% success rate. The procedure is virtually painless, has no harmful side effects, and can take 30 to 45 minutes to complete with multiple visits.
