Pinpoint Laser For Onychomycosis Q & A

What causes nail fungus?

Nail fungus, medically known as onychomycosis, occurs when fungal invaders infect the delicate skin surrounding your nail bed. You may find that your nails become yellow, severely brittle, thickened, or distorted in shape.

Fungal nails can develop at any age, no matter how healthy you may be. But your risk of developing a nail fungus infection increases due to:

  • Older age
  • History of athlete’s foot
  • Weakened immune system
  • Poor circulation, possibly from diabetes

Your chances of having fungal nails also go up if you walk barefoot in a damp communal area, such as a swimming pool deck, gym shower, or gym locker room.

How is nail fungus treated?

At Aesthetic Podiatry & Sports Medicine Center, you can receive the most innovative nail fungus treatments available, so you don’t have to feel embarrassed about your nails another day. Though traditional topical antifungal ointments and nail polishes are still beneficial, they don’t always help restore your clear nails. This is why Dr. Rivera offers PinPointe laser treatments.

The PinPointe laser sends out beams of laser light. As this laser energy passes through your nails, it destroys fungal invaders without affecting healthy skin tissue.

PinPointe laser for onychomycosis is often considered the “gold standard,” since it stops fungal infections, all the while promoting healthy new nail growth. The entire laser nail fungus treatment is quick, virtually painless, and requires no downtime. You can return to your normal activities immediately afterward.

When do PinPointe laser treatments start working?

PinPointe laser nail fungus treatments destroy fungal invaders on the spot. As your nail naturally grows in, you’re going to find that the new nail is clear and healthy. Over time, that damaged, yellow, misshapen nail grows out, and you’re left with beautiful, new healthy nails.

For more complex cases of nail fungus, Dr. Rivera could recommend additional treatments. When you come into Aesthetic Podiatry & Sports Medicine Center for your PinPointe laser consultation, Dr. Rivera can let you know what you can expect from your specific treatment plan.
