There are many things that can affect the health of our feet. We may forget and even neglect our feet until something serious or unsightly happens that we cannot ignore. Toenail fungus can be annoying, unsightly, and it can even be dangerous if the condition goes untreated. If you are seeking toenail fungus treated that doesn’t require taking medication or applying ointments for extended periods of time, then Dr. Merrick L. Horn and Dr. Jean-Jacques Kassis can provide you with advanced toenail fungus treatment in Aventura, North Miami Beach, Bal Harbour, downtown Miami and the surrounding areas in Miami Dade, and Broward Counties. This treatment is a safe, and often effective alternative to oral and topical medications.
Toenail fungus often begins as a spot under the nail. The spot may appear to be white or yellowish in color. Sometimes, these spots can grow out of the nail, leaving the nail itself unscathed. But if the fungus is more serious, the bacteria may spread throughout the entirety of the nail. The entire toenail may become discolored, grow thicker and harder to the touch, and the edges of the nail may begin to crumble as well. This stage of toenail fungus should absolutely be treated and can lead to further complications if treatment is not sought out. Dr. Merrick L. Horn and Dr. Jean-Jacques Kassis can help any patients with this condition by offering advanced toenail fungus treatment in Aventura, North Miami Beach, Bal Harbour, downtown Miami and the surrounding areas in Miami Dade, and Broward Counties.
Traditionally, toenail fungus can be treated with the help of oral medications or topical ointments. Medications have the potential for side effects and topical ointments can be messy and uncomfortable to apply multiple times a day. Instead, Dr. Horn and Dr. Kassis can treat your toenail fungus with the help of advanced laser technology. A specially designed laser beams through the toenail and safely kills the organisms embedded in the nail bed that cause toenail fungus.The recommended treatment is 3-4 visits for most people in order to effectively treat the fungus, and the doctors at Foot and Ankle Specialists of Florida will determine if you need additional follow-up care. The great thing is that there is virtually no recovery time. You can walk right out of the office after your treatment!
