It is difficult to get rid of mycotic nails, especially when the infection has been present for a long time. The fungus can be very resistant making treatment more difficult. Laser treatment generally helps eliminate nail infections and restore healthy nails. If you have already tried topical treatments such as creams, varnishes and oils, and the result was unsuccessful, the laser could be the treatment of choice.
The laser is a safe and painless and side effect treatment that is highly effective. The laser emits a deep thermal energy that penetrates the plate of the tab that is absorbed by the fungi. The latter will thus be damaged and destroyed. Normally, 3 to 4 laser treatment sessions are required.
REMINDER: WHAT IS THE NAIL MYCOSIS?
Onychomycosis (nail fungus) is an infection of the nail by a microscopic fungus. It is the most common nail disease and its incidence increases with age. Initially, the infection produces a detachment of the nail and a yellowish coloring that usually starts in a corner of the nail and progresses quietly. The fungus will then cause discoloration (yellowish / whitish / brownish) and thickening of the nail. Sometimes the nail can become friable and deformed.
The treatments available for the fungus are quite limited. Topical treatments (cream, varnish, oil) can be used at the very beginning of infection, but the success rate is low. They consist in applying the product daily to your nails.
Oral treatment has a higher success rate than topical treatments, but there are some notable risks of liver damage. Blood samples should be taken to ensure that this drug is suitable for you.
Laser treatment is still the best alternative to deal with this tenacious problem. It is possible to combine topical and laser treatment for best results.
