Nail fungus, or onychomycosis, isn’t just unsightly – it can be painful and persistent, too. While traditional treatments can work, they often involve months of topical medications or oral antifungals. And frankly, they also tend to produce mixed results and potential side effects.
Podiatry is a field that’s friendly to innovation, however. That’s why the expert team at Carrollton Foot Center is proud to employ two innovative tools when treating toenail fungus: The Lunula Laser and KeryFlex nails. Used in tandem, these dynamic new treatments are revolutionizing the way our DPM approaches onychomycosis. Read on to learn how!
Shining a Light
- The Lunula Laser utilizes painless, low-level laser therapy.
- Its unique dual-wavelength approach targets the fungus directly while stimulating the nail bed to promote healthier growth.
- This non-invasive treatment requires no downtime and boasts a high success rate, making it a patient-friendly option.
Adding Strength and Beauty
- KeryFlex nails are flexible, resin-based prosthetics that seamlessly adhere to the damaged nail.
- They offer immediate cosmetic improvement, hiding discoloration and restoring a natural appearance.
- Their benefits go beyond aesthetics: KeryFlex nails create a protective barrier, preventing further fungal invasion and promoting healthy nail growth underneath.
The Synergistic Duo
Combining Lunula Laser’s fungus-fighting power with KeryFlex’s protective shield creates a powerful one-two punch against onychomycosis. The laser tackles the infection at its source, while the KeryFlex nail provides a favorable environment for healthy nail growth, preventing reinfection.
Compared to traditional methods, this duo offers several advantages in the fight against fungus:
- Painless and non-invasive: No needles, harsh chemicals, or uncomfortable side effects.
- Faster results: Visible improvement in weeks, compared to months with traditional treatments.
- Higher success rates: Studies show high efficacy with both Lunula Laser and KeryFlex, often exceeding oral antifungals.
- Improved patient experience: Comfortable, convenient, and cosmetically appealing.
