If you have toenail fungus, you know what a hassle it is to get rid of. Fortunately, there has been a scientific breakthrough when it comes to offering effective treatment. Guelph Medical Laser & Skin Centre proudly provides laser toenail fungus removal in Toronto. Below are a few common questions many patients have about the treatment.
What is Toenail Fungus Removal in Toronto?
Our toenail fungus treatment uses a laser to obliterate nail fungus. The beam is directed at affected toenails and penetrates their surface to kill the fungus. The beam is able to address growth in the nail bed and nail plate where onychomycosis commonly thrives. The laser is tuned to a frequency that allows the destruction of the fungal cells responsible for infection while leaving your body’s healthy tissues unharmed.
How Long Does The Treatment Take?
Your treatment time will vary from other patients. The number of toes affected will affect the treatment length. In most cases, only one session is needed to provide full relief. That said, the specifics of your treatment will be discussed with you by one of our experts.
Does The Treatment Work?
Toenail fungus removal in Toronto has been shown to be effective in most patients. Most patients can expect complete elimination of the fungus. Laser type can affect treatment outcome. If you have questions about the specific laser that will be used for your treatment, we will be happy to give you that information during your consultation.
When Will I See Improvement?
Most toenails fully re-grow every six to nine months. Your results will become most evident as healthy, unaffected nail growth occurs. Within months, you should be able to see a line of demarcation where the healthy nail is coming in.
Is The Treatment Safe?
Studies have shown no adverse reactions to the lasers used during treatment of toenail fungal infection.
Will I Need Medication?
Topical or oral treatments are typically not required. However, each case is different.
