Norwalk, Conn. (PRWEB) August 24, 2009
Toe nail fungus affects nearly 35 million Americans. In addition, a 2008 study of 500 women by Kelton Research for the American Podiatric Medical Association revealed more than 50 percent of women say their feet embarrass them "always, frequently or sometimes." For those whose foot 'phobia' is caused by fungus, Sound Foot Care Center of Connecticut is pleased to offer a new, alternative treatment - the PinPointe Foot Laser.
Proven 88% successful by clinical studies, the PinPointe Foot Laser, introduced by PathoLase, Inc. in July 2008, is FDA cleared as safe for general use in podiatry and is used to treat fungus that lives in and under the toenail. The laser toenail fungus treatment, which takes only one hour, passes a laser through the toenail to kill the fungus without damaging the nail or surrounding skin. As the toenail grows out, it becomes increasingly clear (a sign that the fungus has been killed.) Nails will be fully grown out after 9-months, making now a great time for patients to receive treatment so their nails can grow out in time to wear open-toed shoes next summer!
"Toe nail fungus is not only unsightly, but can become emotionally devastating for many Americans, particularly those who have struggled with ineffective treatment of toenail fungus," said Dr. Harris Greenberger, founder of Sound Foot Care Center of Connecticut. "At Sound Foot Care Center of Connecticut we strive to offer patients cutting-edge treatments for their podiatric ailments. As one of a limited number of approved treatment centers, and the first in Connecticut to offer the PinPointe Foot Laser, we hope to help patients treat the toenail fungus while taking preventative measures to reduce its odds of recurrence."
To help patients minimize their chances of recurring toe nail fungus, Sound Foot Care Center of Connecticut outlines a comprehensive after-treatment care program. Among the post-treatment precautions are: frequent follow-up visits to monitor toes for fungal growth and an anti-fungal prescription for at-home treatment.
"Our goal is to help patients return their toenails to their natural beauty," Dr. Greenberger said. "We are excited to bring this treatment to those who have struggled with toe nail fungus and are ashamed of their feet. We look forward to helping patients end their battle with toenail fungus and are excited for them to see the results."
