The Benefits Of Laser Treatment For Toenail Fungus

Toenail fungus can make you self-conscious about your feet. Your podiatrist, Dr. Richard Wittock of Ankle and Foot Institute, offers Laser treatment for toenail fungus in Fenton, MO, also serving St. Louis, MO.

Laser Treatment For Toenail Fungus

Your podiatrist uses a laser to remove the toenail fungus. This allows new healthy toenails to grow out. You may need multiple treatments over three months to completely eradicate the toenail fungus. Each laser treatment session lasts only a few minutes.

You won't see the healthy toenails immediately after your laser treatment. While the laser kills the toenail fungus, you'll still need to wait for the regrowth of healthy toenails. It generally takes about 6-12 months for your new healthy toenail to grow completely.
