Fungus laser treatment

Laser treatment for toenail fungus

Fungal nail disease or onychomycosis can occur on both hands and feet. At the same time different types of fungal infections exist that can be caused by dermatomycetes, molds or yeasts. Such microorganisms reproduce and live in places with high humidity – it can be swimming pools, saunas and baths. In addition, the risk of infection increases when wearing someone else’s shoes, and not following the rules of personal hygiene.

Treatment of nail fungus without a laser (gels, creams, medications) lasts in 90% of cases for more than a year, while laser treatment accelerates recovery by 2-3 times.
