What is Toenail Fungus?

Fungal toenails can be unsightly and embarrassing. Fungus in toenails is caused when microbial fungi penetrate the nail and enter the soft skin underneath it. The infection typically starts as a simple little white or yellow spot under the nail; as it penetrates deeper, the nail turns darker yellow and increases in thickness. If left untreated for a long period of time, nails can begin to crumble and become painful.

How Does Blue Shine Laser Therapy Work?

Blue Shine Laser technology helps kill the pathogens that cause toenail fungus. This gentle laser penetrates through the toenail and safely kills the fungi, molds, and bacteria embedded in the nailbed – without causing any damage to the healthy nailbed tissues. No drugs or topical ointments are needed.

Benefits of Laser Therapy on Toenails

Using Blue Shine Laser Therapy on your toenails is completely safe, as it only destroys the pathogens and harmful bacteria under the nailbed, without hurting the healthy tissues. Laser treatments have been around for years, proving that they are beneficial in treating toenail fungus.

Benefits of Blue Shine Laser Therapy include:

  • Outpatient procedure with little to no pain
  • No recovery period
  • Suitable for all ages
  • No harm to the nail or surrounding areas
  • Approved by the F.D.A.

Prevent Nail Fungus From Spreading or Reoccurring

Fungi can spread quickly and easily, so everyone should practice the following steps to prevent fungal growth in their nails:

  • Wash your feet with soap and water regularly, including washing between the toes.
  • Keep your nails trimmed and dry.
  • Trim your nails straight across and file down thicker areas.
  • Wear socks that absorb sweat and change them often.
  • Choose shoes that reduce humidity, or occasionally wear open toe shoes.
  • Don’t share nail clippers or files with others.
  • Use antifungal spray or powder, and discard old shoes that could be holding fungi and cause reinfection.
  • Keep your shoes on when in public, especially when walking around pools, showers, and locker rooms.
