Violetta on Instagram: “For Danae Fischer 💅🏼 this is going to be the hottest mani for the summer 🔥”
Fungal nail infections are ugly and embarrassing. They are ordinary and easy to catch, but very difficult to get rid of.
Unfortunately, most people ignore them because of fungal nails as a cosmetic inconvenience. Mushrooms can be a little inconvenient for a while, but if left untreated, the infection will get worse: nails can get so thick, you will feel uncomfortable wearing closed-toe shoes, nails may differ from toes (onycholysis), the matrix may be permanently injured (onycodystrophy) ... Short story, onychomycosis is a serious illness that requires medical attention and extensive treatment.
Nail fungus (Onychomycosis) is the most common nail disease and over 30 million in the United States only suffer from this condition. About 50% of the population over the age of 45 has nail infections. Some have been fighting mushrooms for decades. Treatment of onychomycosis is challenging as the infection is in the hard to reach area under the nail, called the nail bed.
Current antifungal solutions cannot get there. Oral medications cannot target this particular area and can be toxic and hard on the liver. New laser-assisted therapies are being developed and a growing number of pediatricians in the United States are reporting excellent clinical results. To maximize efficiency, laser treatments should be combined with a complete and comprehensive program.
Usually, at least two laser treatments of all toes are required, focusing on the poorly infected. Patients must use a UV shoe cleaner (yes, we have to treat all shoes to kill fungi and bacteria), a strong local medication and a care program to prevent re-infection. This comprehensive treatment is safe, non-toxic, pain-free and very effective.
Thanks to its ability to pass through the nail and dead sponges in the nail bed, laser light is the only available today, allowing practitioners to address the very cause of the disease. While the high intensity light and thermal damage delivered to the target by the laser is fatal to the fungi, it is safe for the surrounding skin. In fact, the same lasers are used for new collagen growth in anti-aging aesthetic procedures and can stimulate the growth of new, healthy and fungus-free nails, which will gradually replace the old ones.
Patients with mycotic nails are very susceptible to re-infections. The fungus is found everywhere in the environment in people with onychomycosis. Therefore, the complex remediation and preventative care are crucial to the success of the treatment. Visit www.laserfortoe.com to learn more about using mushroom lasers.
