Your toes are where fungus grows, especially when you don’t wear shower shoes or flip flops in public shower rooms or pool areas; or when you wear someone else’s shoes or socks; or when your pedicurist uses unclean tools; or when your socks are laden with moisture; or when you wear damp, ill-fitting shoes. Given the opportunity, toenail fungus will strike. You might not even realize it until you notice thick, discolored nails accompanied by pain and discomfort.
Unfortunately, toenail fungus will spread unless you take action. There was a time when your only treatment options were topical or oral medications, removal of the toenail, or some measure suggested by an old wives’ tale. Maybe they worked; maybe they didn’t. Almost certainly, the toenail fungus returned. Thankfully, this doesn’t have to be the case any longer. It’s the 21st Century, and there’s a 21st Century solution… the FDA-approved PinPointe™ FootLaser™.
The groundbreaking PinPointe™ FootLaser™ in-office, 30-minute procedure uses a laser light beam to penetrate an infected toenail without affecting the surrounding healthy tissue. It kills the fungus in the nail bed, thereby rendering it harmless and no longer able to grow. There’s little or no pain, and, because there’s no anesthesia or bandaging required, little or no recovery time. Within months of the treatment you’ll have a clear and healthy toenail.
