Nail Fungus Treatment

Nail Fungus Treatment in Toronto: What Works? What Doesn’t?
Nail fungus treatments at Toronto’s Sovereign Skin can help you wear summer shoes and bare your toes with confidence again. About 1 in 10 people suffer from nail fungus (onychomycosis) in their lifetime. The feet are particularly susceptible, with toenail fungus being more prevalent than fingernail fungus.
If you’ve got this problem, you’ve probably noticed that your toenails appear thick, yellow, or whiteish, and certain shoes feel tight or uncomfortable. Even walking and standing can become a real pain.
Can you cure toenail fungus with a laser? The Fotona SP Dynamis is an innovative, dual-wavelength machine that allows our laser specialists to zero on your nail fungus safely with better results than the alternatives.
If you’ve tried fungal home remedies, switching shoes, and all manner of topical treatments, but nothing works, come see us about laser nail fungus treatment.
Why Do So Many People Need Nail Fungus Treatment?
Fungal nail infections are typically caused by a fungi type called dermatophytes, but some yeasts and molds may also contribute to the condition. Warm, humid environments like spas and swimming pools help fungi flourish and transfer between people. Walking barefoot in public areas increases your risk of contracting it, so we recommend that you don’t! People may also pick up the infection in nail salons.
There are different strains of nail fungi. If you have fungus, the following symptoms can develop:
- Thickened, textured nails
- Brittle, crumbling, breaking nails
- Dull yellow or white nails
- Darkened nails with buildup under the plate
- Yellow streaks
What’s the most effective treatment for toenail fungus?
Fungus treatment is challenging, because the problem lies deep underneath the nail plate. The DIY, home remedies for nail fungus include:
- Apple cider vinegar
- Tea tree oil
- Coconut oil
- Epsom salt
But these don’t deliver impressive or lasting results, because fungus is stubborn and hard to reach under the nail.
Prescription pills and creams can reach a success rate of 70%, but these medications come with side effects, including liver damage. Over-the-counter treatment is even less beneficial.
Thankfully, fungi bacteria are sensitive to light therapy via laser, and their fungal spores are destroyed at 60°C.
If your nail fungus is mild, it may seem to be only a cosmetic issue. You can hide your toes in shoes or wear nail polish and forget about it. However, if not appropriately treated, it may lead to permanent damage, recurring athlete’s foot, and even severe health problems for people with diabetes or a weak immune system.
Our best nail fungus treatment is also recommended by podiatrists and dermatologists, because it is safe, drug-free, and surgery-free. It’s natural, and it works.
How Does Laser Toenail Fungus Treatment Work?
Fotona Nd:YAG laser delivers a controlled light beam with precise thermal energy, direct to the deep layers of the nail bed and surrounding tissue. The laser decreases activity in fungal spores, which causes them to degenerate.
Fotona safely treats the fungus without causing harm to unaffected tissue. Toenail fungus laser treatment before and after images show lightening and normalizing of the nail without visible injury, incisions, or tissue damage to worry about.
What Are Laser Nail Fungus Treatments Like?
You’ll be invited to rest comfortably in your private suite at Sovereign Skin. Your practitioner will review the treatment with you and the pros and cons that you need to know, including how to limit transmission until the fungus has cleared.
Fotona Nd:YAG micro-pulses of light transmit directly to the deep layers of the nail. You may experience some warmth during your laser delivery, but most people don’t feel pain or discomfort during the procedure. After your Toronto nail fungus treatment, you can resume normal activities immediately.
How Many Treatments Will You Need?
The best toenail fungus laser treatments in Canada work quickly and typically complete the job within 2 to 4 appointments.
Fotona laser treatments are repeated for 3 to 4 weeks, and each session takes only 20 minutes on average. Toenails take time to grow, but you’ll see healthy-looking nails begin to grow in when your sessions are complete.
