I have been treating patient's with onychomycosis (fungal nails) for years in my office.  The newest treatment we offer is a laser treatment for this condition.  Patients are turning to this procedure in greater numbers.   The procedure does not involve ingesting a medication for three months that is somewhat toxic to the liver.  It does not involve applying a topical antifungal solution to the nails twice a day for 6 months or longer and still having a relatively low chance of success.   The laser treatment involves a visit to our office where I grind the fungal nails down to make them thin.  I then have a certified laser technician come to my office with a very expensive and high powered laser machine.  By "renting" the laser machine I ensure that I always have the most up to date product to use.  Podiatrists who buy the laser machines will likely hesitate to buy a new one every couple of  years. The treatment takes about 20 minutes total to administer to all ten toenails.  The success rate is as high or higher than taking the pills and again much safer.  The cost of the treatment is 850 dollars and there are no guarentees.  However, if you are sick of thick, discolored and sometimes painful toenails, it seem a good option considering the safety and success ratios.  Call us at 203-853-6570 and schedule an appointment to be properly evaluated to see if you are a good candidate for the treatment.
