Discover the long-lasting benefits of this exciting treatment option during a consultation with our team at BARE Laser & Skin in the Vancouver area in Langley, BC!
What Is Toenail Fungus?
Onychomycosis, or toenail fungus, is a condition that causes damaged and unpleasant nails. Impacted nails may be:
- Dark color caused by a debris build-up under the nail
- Discolored with a whitish to yellow-brown color
While anyone can be affected by toenail fungus, it most commonly impacts older adults. It may be caused or worsened by excessive sweating, certain medical conditions, walking barefoot in damp community areas, and more.
What Could I Expect from a Toenail Fungus Removal Treatment?
Our team in the Vancouver area proudly uses the GentleMax Pro® by Syneron Candela® for toenail fungus removal. During treatment, this powerful combination of 755 nm Alexandrite and 1064 nm Nd:YAG lasers delivers precise laser energy to the nail. Using the 5 mm spot allows for specific spot treatment, and there is little to know pain associated with this simple but effective treatment.
All toenails are treated during the toenail fungus removal process. While only one nail may seem affected by toenail fungus, untreated nails may become infected and impacted by fungi. The laser only affects the nails and the surrounding tissues are unaffected.
Following a toenail fungus removal session, it is important to keep the feet dry and protected. You may want to consider purchasing new shoes and socks as remnants of fungi may cause new infection. It is important to also apply anti-fungal cream as recommended.
Results will vary for each person and severity of the condition. Most people enjoy results within three to six months, but results will vary based on each person’s nail growth cycle.
Am I a Good Candidate?
If you are frustrated with toenail fungus, you may be able to benefit from a GentleMax Pro laser treatment. This dynamic laser is a safe and effective treatment choice for most people.
A consultation with our team in the Vancouver area can help determine if this is the best toenail fungus removal treatment option for you. As a series of treatments may be required to achieve the best results, they can also help develop the right treatment plan for you.
