Our Laser Can Cure Your Toenail Fungus but How Do You Prevent Reinfection?

Improving Fungal Nail Laser Treatments.

One of the newest treatments for toenail fungus is the anti-fungal laser.  The treatment is conducted in a doctor’s office with no local anesthetic. It requires about a year for the new nail to grow out.The treatment is designed to clear the nail after session, but most doctors recommend 1 treatment with a possible touch up procedure to fully rid the nail of fungus.  It is an easy option but the question is does it work?

Laser Treatment of Toenail Fungus

As one of the biggest podiatry practices in the country we were initially skeptical about the treatment. We wondered What makes the fungus not come back after the laser treatment? Furthermore,Why are there no studies to support the treatment and back the superior results? After conducting our own research, we do believe that the treatment works. Nevertheless, our main concern and the ultimate issue is that the nail is not protected against the fungus infection from returning. After Laser treatment patients must continue to protect the nail from getting reinfected.

We like to start patients on the the PediMD Nail Treatment System. The first PEDIMD treatment system is included with the nail fungus laser treatment.  Applying the solution once a week after laser treatment will protect the nail and guarantee that toenail fungus does not reoccur. The treatment is a combination of two lacquers, which maintain a healthy nail and treat any areas that the anti-fungal nail laser may have missed.  As the new nail grows out fungus free, the lacquer continues to protect the nail against re-infection.  Once the nail is fully grown out, applying the lacquer once a week, either by itself or as a base coat under nail polish, will ensure results.

The Antifungal Nail Laser can be an effective treatment if combined with another antifungal medicine such as PediMD. This dual treatment will ensure that all the fungus is gone and protect the nail from future infections. PediMD has been proven not only to treat toenail fungus on its own, but also to supplement other treatments such as the anti-fungal nail laser.

  1. A fungus is a living plant and there are thousands of different fungi, from mushrooms on down. You happen to have the type that feeds off of your toenails.

  2. Thanks for the great article.

    It’s information like this that really makes a difference for toenail fungus sufferers. I managed to overcome my toenail fungus after 10 years.

    Thanks again!
