Nail Fungus Treatment
A Fast, Efficient and Safe Way To Treat Toenail Fungus Infections
Toenail Fungus is the most common nail condition in adults, with approximately half of the world’s population experiencing at least one infected toenail during the course of their lives. Dermatophytes are the fungi most commonly responsible for toenail fungus (onychomycosis) here in Canada; while Candida and nondermatophytic molds are the cause of the problem in the tropics and subtropics where a hotter climate is partly to blame.
No matter your age, you may at one point experience the painful, unsightly and embarrassing symptoms of Toenail fungus. Onychomycosis is a fungal infection most commonly found in toenails and causes the nail to separate from the nail bed and become discoloured. Without treatment, toenail fungus can cause nails to chip and become so thick that wearing shoes becomes uncomfortable.
Description of technology
Les Cours Medical Centre’s GenesisPlus laser treatment is a revolutionary new approach to treating toenail fungus and is a safe and effective procedure. A laser beam is passed over the infected nail(s), as well as the surrounding skin several times until enough energy has reached the nail bed. The laser beam works by penetrating the toenail and nail bed and vaporizes embedded funguses without doing any damage to the healthy tissue. 5-10 nails can be treated in approximately 20 minutes, and most patients will see results within a few months following treatment. Others may require up to 12 months of treatment for a permanent change. You will be able to walk right out of the medical centre following treatment and you will not have to worry about potentially serious side-effects that certain oral antifungal medications pose.
