Laser Treatment for Toenail Fungus

Do your toenails appear yellow, brittle, or thickened?

Then perhaps you suffer from onychomycosis, a condition also known as toenail fungus. Toenail fungus can be caused by heavy foot perspiration, poor shoe/sock ventilation, or walking barefoot in damp areas such as a gym or locker room. Until now, the only solutions for toenail fungus were to surgically remove the nail; apply topical treatments which have a poor success rate; or more recently prescription medications, which have many potentially dangerous side effects.

Today, lasers are the latest treatment for toenail fungus.

The Q-Clear Q-Switch™ laser treatment can effectively and efficiently rid you of ugly unsightly toenail infections in as little as one treatment, depending on the severity of the condition. The mid-infrared laser wavelength penetrates the nail and the nail bed, eliminating the destructive nasty infection thus allowing your own body to revitalize your own nail naturally as it grows out clean clear and healthy.
