Q-Clear Laser in Wappingers Falls, NY
Fight Toenail Fungus with FDA-Approved Laser Treatment
Toenail fungus is one of the most common foot conditions and can affect anyone at any time. It’s caused by the same type of fungus that causes athlete’s foot, so it can spread easily from one person or surface to another and from one part of the body to another. Some symptoms of toenail fungus include the toenails becoming brittle, yellow, and thick, which very often can cause pain. Toenail fungus is difficult to treat – and even when treated – can reoccur. The good news? Hollowbrook Foot Specialists now offers advanced treatment with Q-Clear Laser in Wappinger Falls, NY.
The Q-Clear Laser system is FDA-approved, and studies have shown it to be extremely effective in clearing up toenails that have become thick, discolored, or deformed from infection or fungus. In fact, results show that Q-Clear laser treatment is more effective than topical treatments or medications, and patients experienced no negative reactions or effects. And while laser treatment has been around for several decades, Q-Clear Laser is the first to show these positive results!
How it Works
The Q-Clear Laser system targets both the area of the toenail affected by the fungus, while ‘anti-targeting’ the healthy tissues around the toenail. How does it do this? By emitting a highly intense burst of light to the toenail that efficiently ‘nails’ the fungus in the nail bed – without injuring the underlying area.
There will be no immediate visible results as your body takes over and grows a clear, healthy nail, but patients typically see some improvement over several months.
How Many Treatments?
Very often, only one laser treatment is needed. However, with more complicated or severe toenail fungus, additional treatments may be required. Treatment time takes about 10 minutes for both feet, and patients tell us the procedure is pain-free, with the only sensation being a slight tingling or snapping sensation in the immediate area. Additionally, no anesthesia is needed.
