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 nail fungus treatment 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, nail 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.
