While toenail fungus is incredibly common and nothing to be ashamed of, many people feel embarrassed; too embarrassed to wear flip-flops or even seek treatment. The truth is that anyone could develop nail fungus. But that does not mean you just have to live with it.
Zulu Medical Cosmetics offers non-invasive laser treatment to rid you of nail fungus without major side effects.
What Is Onychomycosis & What Causes It?
Onychomycosis is a common fungal nail infection that usually affects toenails. This infection accounts for 50% of nail disorders and 33% of all fungal skin infections.
Onychomycosis most often develops when a fungus infects the nail or skin tissue on the toes. The infection causes the toenail to become yellowish, thick, brittle, and potentially painful when walking or wearing shoes.
Symptoms of onychomycosis include:
- Nail discoloration
- Flaky or crumbly nails
- Unusual nail thickness
- Yellow or white streaks under the nail
- Separation between the nail and the underlying skin.
ClearSteps Laser Treatment
ClearSteps uses a laser to heat the tissue on and around the infected nail; killing the fungi without damaging your healthy tissue. This treatment is simple, safe, fast, and effective.
Your treatment will take approximately 15 minutes (for all ten nails). While you may feel a warming sensation during the procedure, you’ll be able to continue your day immediately afterwards without issue.
You will likely need up to 4 treatments to get optimal results. With all of your treatments completed, you’ll need to wait for a new, healthy nail to grow. This process may take up to a year depending on the speed at which your nails grow.
