Laser Toenail Fungus Treatment – An Effective Solution to a Widespread Problem
As many as 10-15% of Americans including right here in Atlanta, GA, suffer from unsightly nails due to toenail fungus. Those suffering from toenail fungus are constantly prevented from feeling comfortable with bare feet in public. Patients are highly motivated to resolve their toenail fungus problems – and the Astanza Duality laser provides the answer.*
About Toenail Fungus
The most common form of toenail fungus is distal subungual onychomycosis usually caused by Trichophyton rubrum, a dermatophyte that invades the nail bed and underside of the nail plate. The main side effect of a toenail fungal infection is that the nails become yellowed, brittle, and thickened.
Due to the location of the infection, topical creams are usually inefficacious. Oral medications lead to health risks and are only effective in a small percentage of users. Many patients undertake years of ineffective treatments at great expense, without the relief they want.
Alternatively, laser treatment with the Astanza Duality kills fungus beneath the nail bed in typically just one session.*
Our Astanza 1064mm Laser kills fungus beneath the nail bed in just one session, 80-90% of the time!* During this treatment, intense pulses of laser energy are applied to the entire area of each infected nail and nail bed. The laser energy penetrates through the nail plate to heat up and kill the fungus hiding in the nail bed. This procedure is pain free, cost effective and typically only lasts 10 to 20 minutes. There is no liver toxicity with this treatment and no need to perform blood tests.*
It typically takes a single Astanza Duality laser treatment to completely kill the fungal colony and restore nails to good health. Additional treatments may be necessary for a resistant area, but only in a minority of cases.
The laser pulses immediately kill the fungus, and the newly healthy nail is apparent when the old nail grows out, which takes a few months. Patients typically do not mind waiting to see the results, as they understand that laser treatment is still the best solution to toenail fungus.
Patient satisfaction after treatment with the Astanza Duality is incredibly high.* Relief from toenail fungus affects not only the appearance of the nails, but also the confidence and happiness of the patient. After the healthy nails grow back, patients regain the freedom to attend pool parties, go to the beach, or wear sandals in public.
