Laser Toenail Treatment
Our laser offering at Vitalize Medical Spa is for the purpose of eliminating Toenail Fungus. Toenail Fungus , also known as Onychomycosis, is an infection of the toenail that lies just underneath the surface of the nail and is caused by fungi. An infected toe nail often becomes darker in color and has a foul smell. The infection is capable of spreading to other toenails, the skin or even your fingernails if left untreated.
If you are noticing any discoloration, thickening or deformity of your toenails) you should contact Vitalize Medical Spa and make an appointment to see our Board Certified Podiatrist Dr. Jeremiah Graff. With his state of the art laser treatment, Dr. Graff can correct the infection.
Lasers produce coherent light energy of a sufficient strength and of a specific wavelength which when projected into tissue is deferentially absorbed by the target material, producing heat and hence tissue destruction. Other tissue components are unaffected and so spared. The laser light passes through the toenail without causing damage to the nail or the surrounding skin. At the time of the procedure, the toenail will not become instantly clear, it takes time to grow out.
