Onychomycosis, or nail fungus, is a common ailment affecting around 10% of the U.S. population, especially in people over the age of 60. What’s more, nail fungus is chronic and will become worse over time if untreated. Not only can toenail fungus be an unpleasant and unsightly cosmetic problem, it can actually impact overall health because it may cause pain in daily activities like walking or playing sports.
There is no need to remain in pain or experience the embarrassment of toenail fungus. A new procedure has revolutionized our treatment of this condition, making it easier than ever to manage your toenails and get rid of fungus. The PinPointe™ Laser Treatment now offered at the Cosmetic Enhancement Center is a fast and virtually painless procedure to treat nail fungus and get you back on your feet in no time.
The PinPointe™ FootLaser™ Treatment is the first FDA-cleared laser treatment for nail fungus. It is a convenient, effective procedure to help you achieve clearer, healthier nails.
Toenail fungus can be tricky to cure because the infection is under and inside the nail. Topical products like medicated nail polish or home remedies like bleach or vinegar are not effective. Oral medications have harsh side effects, and patients often experience only moderate success.
The PinPointe™ FootLaser™ revolutionizes the way we address onychomycosis, because it has minimal side effects, takes 30- 45 minutes to complete, and is up to 95% effective in completely eradicating fungus. We perform subsequent treatments after four months to ensure we eliminate every part of the problem.
We are excited to offer this cutting-edge technique for our clients. Dr. Christopher Toth, our board certified foot surgeon, is the first certified medical provider of this treatment in Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont.
