Laser Nail Treatment

Laser Nail Treatment

Laser therapy is commonly used by podiatrists to treat various conditions that may affect the health and appearance of your toenails. If you live in South Florida and love the sandal/flip-flop, laidback lifestyle the Sunshine State offers,  Dr. Katherine Machado of Machado Foot & Ankle Center in Miami, FL offers laser therapy treatment options to treat common afflictions like toenail fungus.

What is Laser Therapy?

Laser treatment, which is among the safest and most effective medical techniques, uses concentrated light to kill toenail fungus (a.k.a. onychomycosis), ultimately preventing future growth or infection. The laser targets the affected toenail without harming surrounding tissue.

A laser nail treatment lasts approximately 20 minutes and is typically pain-free, although a tingling sensation can be felt during and after the process. The professional team at Machado Foot & Ankle Center uses the non-invasive Aerolase advanced laser technology, which provides pulses of light energy to treat the fungal or viral nail infection– without the need (and side effects) of medication.

Laser Nail Treatment Benefits

Laser therapy is quick and even allows patients to relax during the laser nail treatment process. The exact results will vary and be based on the individual and the severity of their condition. However, most patients see noticeable/conclusive results in about 10 to 12 weeks from the beginning of treatment. In addition, laser nail treatment provides –

  • Reduced scar tissue, lessening the chance of chronic pain.
  • Accelerated cellular reproduction and growth – i.e., cellular repair.
  • Increased blood circulation.
  • Decreased inflammation.

Other Uses for Laser Nail Treatments

Podiatrists may also use laser therapy to treat these related conditions -

Ingrown Toenails
Laser therapy is effectively used to treat chronic ingrown toenails, ultimately alleviating the discomfort and pain of an ingrown toenail.

Nail Psoriasis
Psoriasis, which is an autoimmune disease, can change the appearance and even the texture of a toenail. Laser therapy can reduce psoriatic inflammation and improve the nail’s appearance.

Nail Trauma/Injury
Laser treatments can be utilized to help heal a nail trauma or injury. For example, it can be used to release the pressure caused by a subungual hematoma (blood that has accumulated under the nail).

Nail Deformities
The laser can be used to reshape a nail, which can help to correct an abnormal pattern of growth.
