Understanding Nail Fungus

What is Nail Fungus?

Nail fungus, medically known as onychomycosis, is a common condition that affects the toenails and fingernails. It is caused by a variety of fungal organisms, including dermatophytes, yeasts, and molds. One dermatophyte in particular, Trichophyton rubrum, is responsible for over 90% of all nail fungus infections! The infection typically begins as a white or yellow spot under the tip of the nail and, as it spreads deeper, it can cause nails to discolor, thicken, and crumble at the edges. This is also known as hyperkeratosis of the nails.

How is Nail Fungus Acquired?

Nail fungus thrives in warm, moist environments, making it easy to contract in places like public showers, swimming pools, and gyms. It can also be spread through direct contact with an infected person or by sharing personal items like nail clippers and towels. People with underlying health conditions, such as diabetes or a weakened immune system, are at a higher risk of developing fungal nail infections.

Battling Fungus in the Pacific Northwest

Living in the Pacific Northwest has its perks, like beautiful landscapes and a mild climate. However, the damp conditions also make it a hotspot for fungal infections. Nail fungus thrives in moisture, making it a common issue in our region.

Fungal nail infections can be stubborn and tricky, but you don’t have to let them affect your lifestyle. Our laser nail therapy offers a highly effective and safe treatment option for fungal nail infections, boasting high success rates and minimal risks compared to other treatment modalities. Consider consulting with Dr. Alexis at our clinic in West Seattle to determine the most suitable treatment approach for your specific needs and preferences.

How Pinpointe™ Laser Penetrates the Nail

The Pinpointe™ Laser employs a powerful laser beam that penetrates the nail, including the nail matrix, to destroy the toenail fungus. The laser energy targets and heats the fungal spores embedded deep within the nail bed, effectively eradicating the infection while sparing the surrounding healthy tissue. This precise action ensures that the fungus is eliminated at its source, leading to significant improvements in nail health and appearance.

Preparing for Your Treatment

Before Treatment:

  • Clean Your Nails: Ensure your nails are clean and free of any polish or artificial nails.
  • Wash Your Feet: Thoroughly wash your feet with soap and water.
  • Avoid Lotions and Oils: After washing your feet, do not apply any lotions, oils, or other substances.
  • Trim Your Nails: Trim your nails as short as possible to allow better laser penetration. We can also take care of this during your appointment!
  • Avoid Moisture: Keep your feet dry and avoid soaking them in water for prolonged periods before the treatment.

What to Expect After Treatment:

  • Immediate Resumption of Activities: You can resume your daily activities immediately after the session with zero downtime.
  • Gradual Improvement: Noticeable improvement in nail appearance will be gradual, often visible after a few weeks as the new, healthy nail grows out. Keep in mind that nails grow very slowly, so full results may take several months.
  • Follow-Up Care: Follow any post-treatment care instructions provided by Dr. Alexis to ensure the best results.
  • Supplements for Nail Health: Consider including hair, skin, and nail supplements like biotin, gelatin, and collagen in your diet to help promote healthy nail growth.

Dealing with Severe Fungal Infections

In cases of severe fungus, additional measures may be beneficial to enhance the treatment’s effectiveness:

  • ITopical Antifungals: Applying topical antifungals can help manage the infection externally and increase overall effectiveness.
  • IFoot Sprays: Utilizing antifungal foot sprays daily can help prevent reinfection and keep your feet fungus-free.
  • IUV Light Therapy: Using UV light therapy to sanitize shoes can eliminate fungal spores residing in your footwear, reducing the risk of recurrence.
  • IRetreatment: For some patients battling severe infections, recurrence can occur. Retreatment of the affected areas may be necessary. Please contact our clinic if you are needing follow-up treatment.
