Nagler Foot Center, the reputed Houston based foot care center, is now offering laser nail treatment that can kill the infection causing pathogens. The new procedure is quick, painless, has no side effects and has shown 88% cure rate.
“The laser treatment is a brand new way to treat nail fungus, called Onychomycosis in medical dictionary. Nail infection can cause deformation of the nails. The patient can develop yellow streaks or nail fragments in the skin under the nails. The nails appear discolored, thick, brittle, broken and damaged. The infection is caused by fungi including yeasts and molds. The laser treatment has been developed to treat these mycotic nails. It is also known as the pinpoint laser treatment,” said a foot and ankle surgeon working with the Center.
In the laser treatment, gentle laser light is used to kill the fungi causing the infection. The laser by passing through the toe nails destroys the pathogens embedded in them. It is operated in a tight spectrum of near infra-red light. Unlike the Carbon dioxide lasers, it safely destroys the fungi, bacteria and molds causing the infection. The laser neither harms the skin in any way nor does it affect the activities of the patient post-treatment.
“Because of the high success ratio of the treatment, a lot of people in Houston are opting for laser nail treatment. 88% of the patients who were treated with laser therapy developed normal healthy nails after just one session. New nail plate grows in the patient after just 6 to 12 months of the first treatment. Unlike the oral pills, which patients used to take earlier, this treatment doesn't have any side effects,” added the doctor.
The laser treatment is an easy and convenient way to turn discolored and disfigured nails into clearer and healthier looking ones. There are also no age or health restrictions related to the treatment. Clinical studies have proved that there are no disabilities, injuries or adverse reactions associated with the treatment. Typically the procedure takes only 30 minutes to complete. To know more about ankle surgery and toe nail fungus treatment in Houston visit website.
