Genesis Toenail Fungus Treatment San Diego
Laser Toenail Fungus Removal
At SDBotox we carry new, innovative technology that effectively gets rid of toenail fungus. Laser Genesis consists of minimally invasive treatments spaced sporadically to fight fungus. With Laser Genesis, a laser beam is passed multiple times over the nail and surrounding skin. The heat of the laser is absorbed by the pigment in the fungi, killing or damaging the fungal organism.
The procedure is quick and painless; patients report feeling only the warmth of the laser as it moves around the area. Our experienced doctors are dedicated to making your procedure comfortable and effortless so that you can go on to resume normal activities. Patients notice an immediate improvement after only one session. Nonetheless, the number of sessions required will fall back on the severity of the infection.
What is Toenail Fungus?
Toenail fungus, or onychomycosis, is a common condition that affects the nails of the feet or hands. Fungal nail infections occur due to the overgrowth of fungi in or around the nail. Fungi thrive in warm, moist environments leading to overpopulation. Many causes contribute to infection including swimming, pools, showers, gym, and even nail salons. These risk factor increase with age and poor health. Other leading causes include tight-fitting shoes and trauma.
Fungus infections are not painful but can become uncomfortable and embarrassing. If ignored, the same type of fungi that cause nail infections can cause other fungi-related conditions like jock-itch and athlete’s foot. Over the counter medications exist, however, treatment is not guaranteed and can have undesired side effects.
These types of infections usually develop gradually which is why any immediate changes to your nails may be too subtle to notice. Permanently getting rid of infection takes time, however, at SDBotox we’ve established a successful solution for patients who seek to restore their natural appearance of the nail.
Symptoms of Toenail Fungus
Toenail fungus can affect a portion of the nail, the entire nail, or several nails all at once. Other infections sometimes mimic the symptoms of fungal nail infections, so the only way to get a proper diagnosis is by visiting your doctor. Symptoms may vary from person to person.
A few common signs include:
- Thickened nails
- White and yellow-brown discoloration
- Brittle, crumby, and ragged nails
- Flaking on the nail surface
- Nail shape distortion
- Strong odor
- Loss of the nail
Prevention is the only way to protect your nails from toenail fungus. Taking good care of your nails saves you from infection. Without proper treatment, many complications arise which include a permanent loss of the affected nails or the spread of infection to other areas of the body. There are various ways to prevent fungal infections.
- Using moisture absorbing socks
- Washing your hands and feet
- Trimming the nails straight across
- Choosing comfortable, breathable shoes
- Avoid being barefoot in public areas
