Nail Fungus Treatment Beverly Hills

The PinPointe Footlaser: How It Works

If you’re looking for a nail fungus treatment, Beverly Hills laser nail centers may have the perfect solution for you. The PinPointe Footlaser is safe, effective and convenient without the side effects of other nail fungus treatment medications. Here’s how it works:

Onychomycosis is caused by a fungal infection in the toenail or fingernail. This fungus causes nails to turn yellow and thicken. Untreated, the fungus spreads to the root of the nail, where it cannot be reached by topical medication, or to other nails. The only proven way to treat nail fungus is to cause the fungal cells to break down (lysis).

Medication, such as Lamisil (Terbinafine) does this by inhibiting a certain enzyme within nail fungus that is vital to its survival. However, the effect of enzyme inhibiting medication is not selective to unwanted fungus cells and can have side effects on the liver, gastrointestinal system, central nervous system and even your sense of taste. As such, this nail fungus cure is sometimes considered worse than the disease.

The PinPointe Footlaser solves this issue by targeting only the fungus cells. The treatment uses a Nd:YAG crystal and a laser frequency that only effects the fungus. Fungus cells are destroyed without touching the surrounding tissue or impacting the body’s internal functions.

After the fungus is killed, a healthy nail begins growing back in its place. After a single treatment, you’ll see improvements in appearance over the next 9 to 12 months. Because there’s no surgery, no anesthetics and no medication, patients can walk in and walk out of their laser nail treatment appointment. This painless procedure can be performed in a comfortable doctor’s office setting in 30 to 60 minutes.
