Restore Your Nails to a Healthy State
Toenail fungus is an often embarrassing condition characterized by cracked and discolored toenails. Left untreated, nail fungus can lead to pain and discomfort as well as more severe conditions such as severely ingrown or broken toenails and infections. Dr. O'Neill offers effective treatment for toenail fungus in Pomona, CA, and the La Verne and Claremont, CA, areas.
What Causes Toenail Fungus?
Toenail fungus is most commonly caused by dermatophyte fungus, as well as yeast and mold. These microscopic fungi thrive in warm, moist environments and make their way into the body through tiny cuts or breaks in the skin.
Symptoms of Toenail Fungus
Toenail fungus is typically characterized by nails that are:
- Separating from the nail bed
- Surrounded by a yellowish, foul-smelling build-up
How to Diagnose Toenail Fungus
Given that other conditions such as psoriasis can mimic the look and symptoms of nail fungus, diagnosis is best made using a lab analysis of scrapings from under the nail in addition to a physical examination.
Our Treatment Approach
Surgery is always a last resort option, including when it comes to toenail fungus. We do our best to help you without surgery, and we have a number of treatment options available for toenail fungus including noninvasive Lunula Laser® therapy.
The Lunula Laser is a quick and painless solution to toenail fungus. The noninvasive laser produces a strong, coherent light energy at a specific wavelength that the nail tissue absorbs in a unique way. This produces heat and destruction of the offending germs. With the use of lasers, the tissue surrounding the affected area remains unharmed.
You will experience no pain and can return to normal activities following this in-office treatment. Healthy, clear toenails are within reach with cutting-edge Lunula Laser treatment.
