Toenail Fungus FAQs
How do you treat toenail fungus?
There are some options when it comes to treatments for toenail fungus, but they have varying results. Various medicated creams and polishes that can be applied in some cases, and these can be more effective if the nails are first thinned or debrided so the anti-fungal medication can sink further in. In severe cases, an anti-fungal drug may be prescribed for normal use. These, however, may have side effects and are not recommended for many with liver or heart conditions.
One of the most effective treatments we employ is DIOWAVE Deep Penetrating Laser, which is capable of destroying the fungus at its source. Treatments require no drugs, have minimal-to-no discomfort, and results can start to be seen after just a few short sessions.
