Laser Nail FungusTreatments in Bellevue, WA

Serenity Rejuvenation Center is a top provider of laser nail fungus treatments in Bellevue, WA. Nail fungus is a common condition known as onychomycosis, symptoms are characterized by the appearance of nails that are discolored and abnormally thick. Our non-invasive laser therapy offers a cutting-edge approach to restoring the health and beauty of your nails.

What CausesNail Fungus?

Nail fungus, or Onychomycosis, is an infection caused by microscopic fungal organisms that affect the toenails and, less commonly, the fingernails. It often begins as a white or yellow spot under the nail. Fungi thrive in warm, moist environments, showers, or nail salons for example. So, there are many opportunities for benign exposure to active fungal spores.

A Comprehensive Approach forLaser Nail Fungus Treatment

Importantly, a key advantage of laser therapy is its safety profile, especially when compared to oral antifungals that are known for their potential liver toxicity. Such medications often necessitate regular liver function tests to monitor the body’s response, posing an additional burden on patients.

Understanding the complexities of nail fungus treatment, our approach encompasses more than just laser therapy. We integrate this advanced technique with a prescription medication that is gentle on the liver, thereby minimizing health risks associated with traditional oral antifungals.

Additionally, our strategy includes a thorough educational component, focusing on nail filing and essential home care practices to manage and prevent fungal infections effectively. Recognizing that the structural changes caused by the fungus necessitate ongoing care, we provide detailed instructions for home maintenance to ensure the long-term health and appearance of your nails.

Laser therapy for nail fungus represents an innovative alternative to traditional treatments, using specific wavelengths of laser energy to precisely target and eradicate the fungal cells responsible for the infection. This method stands out for several reasons, making it a preferred choice over other non-invasive and surgical interventions:

  • Location of the Infection: Fungal nail infections develop beneath the nail plate and in the nail bed, areas where many topical antifungals cannot reach effectively, thus limiting their success.
  • Slower Growth: Infected nails grow at a sluggish pace, delaying the emergence of healthy nails to replace the infected ones significantly.
  • Fungal Resistance: Over time, fungal strains may develop resistance to certain antifungal medications, diminishing their effectiveness.
  • Chronic Nature: Fungal nail infections tend to be persistent. Successfully treating an initial infection does not guarantee immunity against future infections, particularly if environmental conditions conducive to fungal growth remain.

Who Are the Candidates forLaser Nail Fungus Treatments:

Candidates for nail fungus treatment with laser therapy are first and foremost individuals with the condition, a consultation will ensure safe compatibility. Fortunately, the non-invasive nature of the treatment increases the likelihood of it being a safe treatment option for a wide range of patients. For moderate to severe cases, additional treatments may be recommended as the nails grow out to ensure the complete elimination of active fungal cells.

What to Expect During LaserNail Fungus Treatments

During a laser nail fungus treatment session, the laser handpiece is applied to the affected nails, delivering precise laser energy without harming the surrounding skin. While you may feel a warming sensation during the treatment, discomfort is minimal and well-tolerated.

What to Expect After LaserNail Fungus Treatments

Recovery from laser nail fungus treatments does not require downtime and patients can resume regular activities if they choose to. Multiple sessions may be recommended to ensure complete elimination of the fungus and the growth of clear, healthy nails.
