Class IV Laser Therapy is an effective way to treat Onychomycosis or toenail fungus. Since it uses laser energy, it can penetrate through the thickness of the nail into the nail bed where fungi are believed to inhabit. This kills the source of the fungus, making the nail look clearer and healthier. The amount of sessions needed to see the desired results vary per patient.
Class IV Laser Therapy is a quick and painless procedure that has been proven to have desirable results in treating toenail fungus. This helps a patient regain their confidence in the appearance of their feet and be free from discomfort and embarrassment.
What Is Onychomycosis?
Fungus, in general, can be contracted from any shared public space like public locker rooms and showers, as well as shared footwear, and even furniture that a people step on.
These fungi can habituate a person’s feet resulting in fungal foot infections that mostly affect a person’s toenails. This type of condition is known as onychomycosis.
Here are some of its symptoms:
- Brittle and thickened toenails
- Yellow or other discoloration of your toenails
- Unpleasant odor coming from the nail area
