Topeka, Kansas Toenail Fungus Treatment
You no longer need to feel embarrassed wearing open-toe shoes and sandals – or just going barefoot – because of nail fungus or discoloration. Dr. Timothy Gateley is the area’s podiatry leader and is experienced improving nail health and providing a more natural appearance.
Class IV laser therapy is one of the safest and effective ways to treat toenail fungus (onychomycosis).
Unlike ineffective nail polish options, laser treatment penetrates the nail bed and kills the fungus infection living underneath the nail – without pain and without any harmful side effects.
Laser treatment is not covered by insurance. We will bill insurance for the initial consultation visit and discuss pricing after evaluation by our podiatrist.
What is Onychomycosis?
Fungal infection can create major discomfort and even embarrassment. They are also extremely common; affecting millions of people each year.
Additionally, the nail infection is easily spread. Individuals with fungus may have contracted it through shared bathroom space, public locker rooms, showers, and pools, shared clothing or shoes, even a pedicure or manicure.
For some, toe fungus is simply genetic. When this is the case, treatment can become even more difficult given the likelihood of reoccurrence.
One of the most prevalent types of fungal foot infections directly affects your toenails. This type of condition is known as onychomycosis.
You may have onychomycosis if you notice any of the following symptoms:
- yellow or other discoloration of your toenails
- thickened or brittle toenails
- an unpleasant odor coming from the nail area
It’s not uncommon to feel discomfort and embarrassment due to the unsightly appearance of your foot and these symptoms of infected toenails.
Laser therapy offers an effective, safe option for treating fungal toenails without the side effects of many oral medications.
