Nail Fungus Removal

Onychomycosis, or nail fungus, is an infection usually caused by a parasitic fungus of the nail. Damaged, yellowed, peeled off, the nail affected by onychomycosis requires specific treatment, followed rigorously for several months.

Nail Fungus: The Causes

Onychomycosis is most often caused by dermatophyte fungi, more rarely by yeasts or molds.

  • A fungal nail infection caused by dermatophytes usually follows a fungus foot (known as the athlete’s foot), incurred on public spots infected by fragments of skin filed by patients. This is particularly the case in swimming pools, saunas, steam rooms, sports locker rooms, medical offices, dance halls, and so on. After several months, an untreated athlete’s foot spreads to the nail and causes onychomycosis.
  • Yeasts can also be the cause of onychomycosis in the fingernails. These fungi proliferate under the fingernails of people too often in contact with water.
  • Mold contamination can occur from contact with contaminated soil.

What Are the Benefits of Nail Fungus Removal?

Traditional remedies like topical ointments and oral medications often require extended treatment periods and may come with side effects. Laser nail fungus removal provides a more streamlined approach that many find to be a preferable alternative. Additional benefits of fungus removal at Rejuvenation Wellness Center include:

  • Quick Treatment Time: Most sessions are completed in as little as 30 minutes, making it convenient to fit into your busy schedule.

  • Minimal Side Effects: Unlike oral medications, which can affect your liver or cause other systemic issues, laser treatment generally has fewer side effects.

  • Highly Effective: The laser targets the fungi directly, leading to a higher rate of effectiveness compared to traditional treatments.

  • No Downtime: After the procedure, you can resume your daily activities immediately, with no need for recovery time.
