Advanced Lasers are the most effective treatment for toenail fungus
Do your toenails appear yellow, brittle or thickened? ... What causes it?
Nail fungus infection, or Onychomycosis, is a condition which can be embarrassing and even painful. It is caused by microscopic organisms called dermatophytes which live on the nail bed and the nail plate (the same organisms which cause athlete's foot on the skin's surface). The build-up of these organisms is usually due to foot perspiration, poor shoe/sock ventilation, toenail injury, pedicures in unsterilized facilities or walking barefoot in damp areas such as a gym or locker room. The toenail provides the fungus with an extremely well-protected place to live.
Advanced Non-Invasive Laser Treatment for Fungal Nails...
How does it work?
The Advanced FDA Cleared CoolTouch Laser emits a brief but gentle burst of light into the targeted area. The laser energy heats the infected tissue creating an environment where fungus cannot survive. Even though only some toenails may be infected the laser treatment is performed on all 10 toenails since it is the nature of this disease to spread and infect other healthy tissue.
Clinical studies rate CoolTouch Lasers 80-88% effective.
The Laser Nail Center Quincy uses CoolTouch Yag Laser not PinPointe Laser because we believe CoolTouch is more effective. To watch a video showing the CoolTouch Treatment click here. To read about the difference between these lasers click here
Stop the spread of fungus with our UV Shoe Sanitzer
Next time you want to borrow a pair of shoes from a friend keep this in mind - human feet create up to 8 ounces (1/2 pint) of sweat per day. The combination of sweat and heat inside a shoe makes a perfect breeding ground for the bacteria and fungi that cause toenail fungus, athlete's foot and foul odor and we do nothing to clean the inside of our shoes! When foot ailments exist, shoes can be a common source of reinfection so think twice before borrowing that pair of shoes! We recommend and sell a UV shoe sterilizer to our patients who are fighting fungal infections because with one treatment it destroys 99.9% of the microorganisms inside the shoes. These include bacteria and fungi that cause toenail fungus, athlete's foot and offensive foot odor. Call us at 855-FIT-FEET (855-348-3338) for more information.
Are you tired of suffering from Heel Pain?
A new outpatient procedure is now available in our office to treat your chronic heel pain. ESWT, commonly referred to as Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy. This treatment can relieve pain and return you to normal daily activities without the risks associated with surgery. For more information please click here.
Do you have Flat Feet, Poor Balance, Back Pain?
We specialize in creating very accurate Custom Orthotics (arch supports). We use the latest computer gait analysis technology to help prescribe the perfect orthotic to control, relieve or treat foot disorders. Orthotics relieve pain and prevent the return of painful foot symptoms through the control of foot function and mechanics. They maximize shock absorption for patients who have lost the normal fat-pad cushioning of the foot. They correct leg length differences and abnormal foot function. Orthotics are often used in sports to control operation of the foot during athletic performance and protect against stress-related sports injuries. Improving your foot/leg function so you have less pain and are more active is one of the most important things you can do to improve your overall health.
