Posts for category: Laser Fungal Nail

As the warm weather begins to return to our area vacations, weddings, sweet sixteen parties, baby showers and beach getaways become a normal part of our weekly routines.  I have many patients who present with concern regarding not only the feel but look of their toenails due to either trauma, fungus, bacteria or arthritic conditions like psoriasis.  Patients not only want to have relief of pain in shoe gear but are also looking for a way to improve their toes appearance while in sandals or barefoot for the next six months.  Keryflex is one of my favorite procedures to perform in the office because the end result is a natural looking and feeling nail and my patients leave with not only relief but a new sense of confidence.  Unlike acrylic nails, Keryflex is not water soluble, therefore there is no risk of developing an infection underneath the nail.  The keryflex nail is created from resin on top of your currently existing nail and cured with a UV light.  The nail can then be painted, filed and you can instantly leave our office with no drying or aftercare.  The nail will grow out and can easily be maintained on a monthly basis in the office. Antifungal topical can also be used with an intact Keryflex nail.  Some patients suffer a trauma and are in need of a replacement for sometimes up to a year until their natural nail grows in - Keryflex is an excellent solution.  Keryflex is offered at our Huntington and Manhasset office locations.

Do you have fungal nails? Are you constantly self conscious about your toenail appearance and hide your feet? Don’t worry, you are not alone - over 36 million individuals in the US are affected  by nail fungus.    
  
There are different types of nail fungus and is typically caused by fungi (yeasts/molds). Fungi love warm and moist places and can thrive in the layer of dead skin surrounding your nails. Depending on the circumstances whether due to health issues (immunocompromised), going  barefoot in communal areas (gym showers, pool areas, gym mats)- your nails may become  infected. Once infected, your nails may become discolored, thickened, and even painful. Stop  nail fungus and try laser toenail treatment!   
  
At Advanced Podiatry, we offer the Pinpointe Foot Laser. The Pinpointe laser is the first FDA approved laser that is clinically proven to provide significant improvement in clear nail growth  without side effects or need for blood tests! The laser targets the fungi the nail without causing damage to your nails or skin! Most patient only complain of increased warmth on their toenails  during the procedure.   
  
If you are interested in the Pinpointe Foot Laser, now is the time to do it in order to have your nails summer ready! This is because you may not visually see a change in nail appearance until your nail grows out which may take about 5-6 months. According to a study performed, more than 71% of patients experienced “sustained improvement in new, clear nail growth.”
