Toe Nail Fungus
June 16, 2011 by Post Team
Toe Nail Fungus, It is a common problem for many local podiatrists and now has a new tool in fighting nail fungus. Dr. Thomas Troy introduced FootLaser Tsawwassen PinPointe his practice in late March after it was approved by Health Canada earlier this year. The laser is a fast, efficient and free of drugs for treating nail fungus, he said. Toenail fungus is a common problem. Troy said that about 10 percent of the population has a rate that rises to 30 percent at age 50.
Keep the nail fungus at bay is as much a matter of aesthetics – makes the nail thick and color – and keep from spreading a communicable disease. A yeast infection can lead to serious health problems for patients with diabetes or immune disorders. Aside from aesthetics, a fungal infection can be disfiguring and painful. Until the advent of lasers, nail infections by fungi are usually treated with medication or topical ointments.
The laser works by penetrating the nail without causing further damage to the nail or surrounding skin. The heat from the laser destroys the fungus. Troy, who has been practicing in the area since 1987, said all 10 nails should be treated at once.
The nail will not be deleted immediately. Be removed slowly as the infected nail, damage grows and is replaced by new, healthy growth.
For some, the treatment will mean the end of nail fungus, but as with any other treatment for possible return of some fungi.
