Now that spring has arrived, it’s time for our feet and toes to make a grand appearance. But before you put your feet into the spotlight, you must make sure that they are healthy and looking their best. Having your feet tucked away in warm, snugly socks and heavy shoes and boots all winter long may lead to fungal nail infections or Onychomycosis. This is often an unpleasant surprise that may creep up under your toes during the winter or spring season. If left untreated, it can cause discoloration, thickening, and splitting of the nails. A variety of fungal toenail treatments are available and can vary from topical antifungal medications such as creams, lotions, spray or nail polish to laser therapy.
New Treatment Option: PinPointe Foot Laser
Dr. John C. Marzano and his team at Westchester Podiatric Medicine, P.C., in Yonkers, NY, can help treat this condition with state-of-the-art technology, including laser. With the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved PinPointe Foot Laser treatment, fungal nail infections can be treated safely, quickly, and without any anesthesia or injections.
The device emits a laser light that dives down the thick toenail, killing the fungus living around or underneath the toenail. The procedure has no side effects and typically takes only about 30 to 45 minutes to complete. This easy and convenient treatment is one of the best ways to turn your discolored and disfigured nails intoPin clearer, healthier-looking nails.
