You no longer have to feel embarrassed to wear open-toe shoes and sandals – or even go barefoot – because of toenail fungus or any discoloration. Hicksville Podiatry is the New York Area leader in refurbishing nails back to health, and providing a natural, luminous look.
Class 2 laser therapies are one of the most safe and effective ways to treat toenail fungus (onychomycosis)! Laser therapy penetrates the nail bed and kills the fungus living underneath the nail-pain free and without any damaging side effects. When the fungus under the nail is “attacked” by the laser, the ability for it to grow and thrive are demolished. This allows your nail bed to begin the new growth of a healthy nail. Nails that won’t give you feelings of discomfort or embarrassment! Laser therapy is a fast and simple treatment that allows patients to be relaxed during their procedure.
Lunula Laser – toenail fungus treatment
Hicksville Podiatry is the first office in Long Island to offer the Lunula Laser which is also the first and only pain-free non-thermal FDA Cleared Laser for the treatment of patients with toenail fungus. This new type of toenail care is a proven non-invasive treatment for onychomycosis (fungal nails). This treatment offers no discomfort, downtime, or side effects when using the laser. Lunula Laser also uses low-level laser light to handle fungus and typically requires four, 12 minutes sessions administered to the affected area. For severe fungal infection of toenails, we do recommend having 5 to 6 sessions applied to the affected area. This Lunula laser is your safe, effective, pain-free, non-invasive, non-thermal treatment free of side effects and there are no risks when compared to a plethora of other heat-based lasers. Lunula Laser does not harm the healthy tissue while it is working on infected fungal tissue and nails.
Advantages of Lunula Laser:
- The only pain-free laser for toenail fungus
- The only non-thermal FDA Cleared for treating toenail fungus
- No risks or side effects associated with Lunula Laser
- No discomfort or pain during the treatment
Please note Dr. Bhela will evaluate your toenails prior to treatment to determine the severity of toenail fungus and will recommend whether you need to opt-in for an advanced topical antifungal cream first prior to trying Lunula Laser.
