Laser for Hand & Foot Fungus

One in five

Canadians have or have had a toenail fungus infection. Up to 50% of nail problems are due to a fungal nail infection.
We have to be patient when treating nail fungus. Once the infection progresses beyond a certain point, the treatment will take time to work. We need to understand that it takes a long time to cure nail fungus. It can take from 6-12 months for the nail to fully grow out and replace the diseased nail.
Onychomycosis brings a unique therapeutic challenge—the nail structure makes it difficult to penetrate with topical treatment, but the side effects become a concern with oral treatment. This is why laser treatment is successful as it is able to reach and  attack the fungus below the nail and deliver a strong targeted heat that kills the fungus 
Cutera delivers the latest advanced technology and safety features. Their laser therapies are approved by Health Canada and used worldwide. Treatment usually only takes a couple minutes and yields no discomfort, allowing you to continue with normal activities as usual.This sophisticated device, the best in its class, transforms how we treat toenail fungus and Athlete’s Foot and allows us to give our clients the confidence to wear open-toed shoes again!



























So, what causes toenail fungus?
Toenail fungus happens when tiny microscopic organisms called fungi get underneath your toenails, causing an infection, according the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD).
Not-so-fun fact: The same fungus that causes jock itch and athlete’s foot can also cause toenail fungus, which can infect your nails and the skin underneath.
You can catch toenail fungus in warm, moist places like a pool deck or gym locker rooms. If someone has an infection and walks barefoot on the surface before you, you can easily pick it up, the AAD says.
Having wet nails for long periods of time, like wearing sweaty shoes or soggy boots all day, can also cause toenail fungus.

Depending on the type of fungus you’re dealing with, an infection can cause a slew of unpleasant symptoms, including:
Nail discoloration (yellow, brown, green, or white nails)
Debris buildup underneath the nail
Lifting of the nail from the skin
Nail thickening or crumbling
Nail thinning or splitting

Toenail fungus is highly contagious and, if you have a fungal infection on your foot, the fungus can spread to one or more of your nails, so early treatment is optimal.

How to treat toenail fungus?
Despite what you may hear, covering your infection with nail polish or artificial nails will not get rid of toenail fungus.
There are a few different ways to treat toenail fungus. There are topical treatments, prescription drugs and laser treatments.

- Topical treatments can be effective if the fungus is caught early enough and you are vigilant in using them.

- Prescription medications can also be highly effective but can have some adverse side effects. Talk to your physician.

- Laser treatments can be highly effective with no side effects, but we do recommend using a topical treatment in conjunction.

Just know this, treating toenail fungus can be extremely difficult, but the earlier you treat the nail infection, the more likely you are to cure it. Treatment can take several months, it can take up to a year before you no longer see the evidence of fungus as you need to wait for healthy nail to grow out, which is a slow process.

Treatments are best purchased in multiples as it will take more than one session.
