Livingston Podiatry Associates provides Laser Nail therapy for the treatment of onychomycosis (nail fungus). Laser Nail therapy is accomplished utilizing a cool laser. This cool laser beam is administered without the need for anesthesia and is pain free. The infrared laser beam is applied to the involved nail and through heat ablation destroys the pathogens that cause the nail fungus. The number of treatments required can vary depending on the severity of the fungal infection. The literature states that the effectiveness of this type of therapy ranges from 60-88% for a six to twelve month followup. Laser nail therapy is an exciting advancement in the treatment of onychomycosis. If you suffer from painful, thickened and discolored nails call Livingston Podiatry Associates to schedule a consultation to see if you qualify for this new exciting and painless treatment.
