Laser Nail Fungus Treatment Toronto
Laser nail fungus treatment is one of the most common procedures performed at Q Esthetics Laser Clinic. Toenail fungus & fingernail fungus affect about 10% of the population worldwide. Toenail fungus is more prevalent than fingernail fungus. The fungus can make toenails thick, yellow or discolored, and may cause pain when walking or standing.
Fungal nail infections are typically caused by a kind of fungi called dermatophytes, though certain yeasts and molds may also contribute to the nail fungus. Nail fungi usually grows in warm and humid environments such as spas, swimming pools, public showers and locker areas, walking around public areas barefoot increases your risk of developing toenail fungus.
You may be suffering from different types of nail fungi, as a result, the following symptoms can develop:
- Thickened or distorted nails
- Brittle, crumbly or ragged nails
- Dull, discolored nails
- Dark nails caused by debris building up under the plate
- Nails with yellow streaks under the plate
- Nails with white spots or streaks on the plate
Laser Nail Fungus Treatment
Fungal nail infections are quite challenging to treat due to the difficulty of reaching the fungi embedded underneath the nail. The fungi are so stubborn that traditional toenail fungus treatments such as home remedies, prescription pills and creams have a very low cure rate, and long-term use of medications can have harmful side effects, including damage to the liver and kidneys.
For many people, toenail fungus is simply a cosmetic issue. If not treated promptly and properly however, it can lead to permanent damage to the nails, and even lead to more serious health problems, specifically among individuals with diabetes and weakened immune systems.
