infinity_symbolForever is a long time. Realistically, we know that nothing lasts forever. But sometimes it feels like it will. Like a child waiting for a ride at Disneyland, a couple awaiting the birth of their first child, catching a delayed flight at the airport, or trying to get rid of your toenail fungus. That’s right. Some people have been living with their toenail fungus for what feels like forever. They just can’t get rid of it. So they start to wonder, “Will I have toenail fungus forever?” The quick answer is no – not if you get toenail fungus laser treatment.

Some people live with their toenail fungus for the majority of their life and it can take a toll. It depends on the severity of your toenail fungus. You may be embarrassed to show your toes in public and live with the inconvenience of constantly wearing closed toe shoes or covering up your fungus with nail polish. Or, it can become so disheartening and sometimes even painful that you end up feeling depressed and only leaving the house for necessities like work and grocery shopping.

Furthermore, it can be just plain discouraging. Imagine if you had been living with toenail fungus for 35 years or more and tried everything under the sun to get rid of it. You tried soaking your fungal toenails in mouthwash and bleach; rubbing garlic, lavender, lemon and oregano all over them; even using Vick’s Vapor Rub and beer. You forked out hundreds of dollars trying over-the-counter topical treatments like ointments and lacquers. You even paid for prescriptions with potential side effects like liver damage. All to no avail.

As difficult as it may be to think about time wasted trying to treat your toenail fungus, be encouraged that now toenail fungus laser treatment is available to get rid of your toenail fungus for good. It works by shining a laser light beam onto the infected nails. The laser penetrates through the nail bed and kills the pathogens causing the fungus so they are no longer able to grow.

Benefits of the laser treatment include:

  •          Minimal or no pain
  •          FDA approval
  •          No side effects reported
  •          Doesn’t involve any blood, bandaging or anesthesia
  •          Requires only three 30-minute outpatient visits

Toenail fungus laser treatment has an extremely high success rate and is the treatment that you’ve been waiting for forever to treat your toenail fungus. Don’t wait any longer! Contact a New York podiatrist at Adler Footcare. We believe feet shouldn’t hurt and neither should their treatment.
