It is not pleasant to see a person infected by toe nail fungus or even worse being the one suffering from nail fungus. All of us want to be always clean and beautiful. And it is just normal that we find remedies for such ailment. With new medical advancement, toe nail fungus treatment may just be as easy as going to your podiatrist. They can easily help your problem with the use of nail fungus laser treatment.


How to identify a nail fungus infection?


Nail fungus, or onychomycosis, is a condition resulting in the growth of a fungus in the nail bed. Signs of nail fungus are when a nail starts to show slight changes in colour or thickness which may cause discomfort when wearing your shoes or slippers. Moreover, nail fungus turns the nail into a yellowish colour with white striations in the nail plate. You may also notice patches in your soles of your feet, or itching between your toes, and peeling of your skin on the bottom of your  foot. Having one or two of these symptoms, it is likely you are suffering from a fungus skin infection called athlete's foot, chronic tinea pedis,  or a toe nail fungus infection. And while toenails are affected more frequently than finger nails, the problem can be easily spread and is notoriously difficult to treat. Consulting a podiatrist at the first signs will help you in curing it right away.

For those who are searching for a way to get rid of their toe nail fungus quickly, safely and effectively, a laser treatment may be the solution for you. Klayman Foot Laser Clinics has brought to Toronto Genesisplus, a breakthrough nail fungus laser treatment, which has been approved by Health Canada. The treatment starts getting the nail fungus properly assessed. The fungus nail is thinned and cleaned with a water based or vacuum file to remove any thickening and fungal debris. Photographs are taken for comparative purposes and monitoring of your results. In turn, the podiatrist will apply a directed focused light source on to a toe infected by nail fungus. The laser toe nail fungus treatment will target the fungal infection in the toenail and the area below called the toenail matrix. Laser toe nail fungus treatment will destroy the fungal infection and should be relatively painless after the procedure. During the procedure their is at times slight warmth to an occasional burn like sensations but this passes in seconds and their is typically no residual changes to the nail. The specific wavelength of the laser toe nail fungus treatment targets only the living fungi. The whole process takes 30 minutes to 1 hour.


The pictures below demonstrates the progression of laser treatments from a patient at the Klayman Foot Laser Clinic that suffered with a chronic fungus toe nail of the small digit for many years. The treatment involved two laser treatments in 6 week intervals. As demonstrated in these pictures of our patient the toe nail returned to its original thin, clear, and healthy colour.

Preventing recurrence of nail fungus                                                                                                 


There is a risk of recurrence, because the fungus is present everywhere in the environment. But recurrences can be prevented by following a nail fungus prevention hygiene program, which we will prescribe during and after your treatment. This includes anti-fungal spray for feet and shoes, not going barefoot, keeping feet clean and dry, and using your own instruments for manicures and pedicures.
