Nail fungus can cause embarrassing symptoms that make it difficult to wear your favorite shoes. Many people suffer from nail fungus because they are too embarrassed to seek effective treatment. At Tustin Podiatry Clinic, we offer laser treatments that can effectively target and repair nails that have been damaged by a fungal infection. This simple technique will allow you to enjoy healthy nails and more attractive feet, so you can wear sandals in the summer without fear.
Nail fungus can be caused by a number of different fungi. Often a fungal nail infection will begin as a single yellow or white spot visible under the tip of your nail. When left untreated, fungal nail infections can penetrate more deeply into the nail and the nailbed, leading to the thickening of the nail and even a crumbling appearance at its edge. Fungal infections in your toenails are usually more of an aesthetic concern, however, many people do experience pain as the nails thicken as a result of the infection. Your nail fungus can affect multiple toes, leading to an unpleasant odor and build-up of debris underneath your nails that can be embarrassing and uncomfortable.
Lunula Laser is a dual-diode, low-level laser device that delivers a multifaceted treatment to target nail fungus. Lunula laser follows the principles of photochemistry, the science of how light affects cell function and behavior. Lunula Laser uses two therapeutic wavelengths: 405 nm (violet) and 635 nm (red) and each wavelength performs a very specific function to provide a comprehensive treatment to target nail fungus. The laser is administered as a line-generated beam, which maximizes the treatment surface area covering hard-to-reach areas that fungus may reside in such as deep within a thickened nail or along the nail bed and root.
• No known risk or harmful side effects of oral anti-fungal medications which may have risk of liver toxicity.
• Does not interfere nor interact with any systemic medicine.
• Painless so there is no downtime.
Four treatments are performed once weekly. Each treatment lasts 12 minutes per foot.
We do a follow-up in 2 months to see how the nails are responding.
The schedule has been determined because this therapy increases microcirculation which results in accelerated nail growth and increased nutrition to the nail. However, since the effects only last for a short period of time, we perform repeated treatments once a week for four weeks to help promote long-term results with more rapid nail growth as well as the growth of healthier nail tissue.
