Nail Fungus Treatment
There are many options for the treatment of fungal toenails. While they can be painful and unsightly, toenail fungus is generally not life-threatening. Traditionally, topical medicine has a success rate of only 10-20%. Oral medication is more effective, but the the most effective method of treatment is treatment by laser. This laser is painless and requires no further medication to eradicate the fungus.
Clear Toenails Made Easy: Q-Clear Laser Treatment
Many people have a toenail that has thickened and no longer looks clean & clear. More than likely it’s a fungus under the nail called Onychomycosis. Nail fungus treatment has advanced tremendously in recent years. In the past, in order to eliminate the fungus and clear the nail bed, there have been oral prescription medications that may require follow-up blood work or over-the-counter topical medicines that may not be effective.
Today new technology is available that treats Onychomycosis with a FDA-approved laser procedure. The Q-Clear Laser System is the best system on the market. The doctors at Triad Foot & Ankle Center have been trained to properly use the Q-Clear laser system and are finding great success for their patients.
The Q-Clear laser treatment is not painful. The patented technology kills the pathogens that cause toenail fungus through high intensity pulses of light that penetrate the nail. Healthy tissue that is near the fungus is unaffected.
The procedure only takes about 30 minutes and normal activity can be resumed immediately.
Most insurance companies believe laser toenail fungus removal is a cosmetic procedure so they may not cover the cost. Be sure to check with your insurance company to find out their restrictions. But remember, healthy feet and nails are an important part of your overall health. We welcome the opportunity to talk with you about the procedure and help you decide if Q-Clear is right for you!
By the way, if you elect to try the procedure, we ask that you remove any toenail polish at least 24 hours before your appointment. Polish remover is flammable and can cause sparking from the laser if used too close to the treatment.
