Toenail Fungus treatments in Jupiter, FL

Toenail fungus is a medical condition that affects both the aesthetics and health of a person’s toes and toenails. Aqua Laser Studio offers cutting-edge treatment for toenail fungus in Jupiter, FL, using the GentleMax Pro laser.

Why Undergo Toenail Fungus Treatment?

Toenail fungus can make people feel self-conscious wearing open-toed shoes or taking their shoes off in public or intimate situations. When a person has clean and healthy toenails, they feel confident wearing shoes that show off their nails.

Toenail fungus treatment with the GentleMax Pro laser restores healthy toenails. It has the highest cure rate versus topical and oral options, making it an ideal treatment choice. Restore your nail health today—contact us for a consultation.

What Is Toenail Fungus?

Toenail fungus, also called onychomycosis, is a fungal infection of the toenails and surrounding tissues. It is estimated that 14% of the total population has fungal nail infections. Fungal toenail infections are far more common than fungal fingernail infections.

Toenail Fungus Symptoms

There are several symptoms that indicate a person has toenail fungus, including nails that are:

  • Brittle, crumbly, or ragged
  • Cracked
  • Discolored
  • Misshapen
  • Separated from the nail bed
  • Thicker than normal

An unpleasant odor is also common. People with toenail fungus may also have other fungal skin infections like athlete’s foot, ringworm, and tinea pedis.

Toenail Fungus Causes

A fungal toenail infection can occur when a fungus enters the nail through small cracks or through the surrounding skin.
Here are several conditions that can increase the risk of toenail fungus:
  • Diabetes
  • Fungal skin infection
  • Nail injury or foot deformity
  • Trauma to the area
  • Venous insufficiency
  • Peripheral arterial disease
  • A weakened immune system

Older people are also more likely to develop toenail fungus.

Diagnosing Toenail Fungus

Fungal nail infections are difficult to treat, and most successful treatments are performed during the early stage of infection, so it is best to seek a diagnosis as soon as possible.
Diagnosing toenail fungus will require a consultation at Aqua Laser Studio. During your consultation, your toes and toenails will be examined, and obvious signs of fungal infection will be evaluated. Your medical history will be considered, and a personalized fungus removal plan will be recommended.
The GentleMax Pro laser toenail fungus treatment will be discussed in detail. You may be able to look over photos of past results from the treatment. The cost will be discussed, and all questions will be addressed.
Pre-treatment instructions will be given. These instructions will include filing the nail down to expose the nail bed, bringing clean socks and shoes (which will be worn immediately following treatment), and disinfecting the house and working area.

GentleMax Pro Laser Fungus Removal

The GentleMax Pro is an FDA-approved laser device for nail fungus treatment. It emits pulses of laser energy, and the heat from this energy penetrates the toenail, reaching the nail bed. The toenail fungus within the nail bed is destroyed by the heat, thus effectively eliminating the fungal infection.
A toenail fungus removal session can be completed within 30 minutes, depending on the extent of the infection and the number of treatment areas. The laser device will be maneuvered over the affected toenails and may include the rest of the nails for a complete treatment.

After Your Treatment Session

There is no downtime after laser toenail fungus removal. However, follow-up treatment sessions may be needed depending on the recovery of the patient. The results of the treatment can be fully seen after 6 to 12 months.

Post-treatment instructions will be provided, such as applying anti-fungal cream (typically twice a day). The patient will have to use antifungal powder inside their shoes. Walking barefoot in public places like swimming pools and gyms must also be avoided.

How Much Does Toenail Fungus Removal Cost?

The price of laser toenail fungus removal varies. The number of treatment areas and the number of sessions needed can impact the total cost of the treatment.
