Fungal toenails plague the confidence of women and men alike. If you dread exposing your thick, brittle, discolored nails to the world and spend beach trips with your toes buried in the sand like a family of scared ostriches, please know you’re far from alone. It’s not difficult to pick up a fungal nail infection.
Unprotected feet just have to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, and conditions such as diabetes, poor circulation, excessive sweating, and trauma to the nails can make the odds all the more likely. Once picked up, fungal nails are much harder to get rid of; especially if not caught early. There is still plenty of hope for people who have lived with a stubborn fungal infection, however.
Our FDA-approved laser therapy takes the fight directly to the fungus, providing a safe and effective way to treat infected nails without the potential side effects of oral medications.
Our FDA-approved laser pinpoints specific wavelengths of light into the source of infected nails, creating heat that destroys the fungus. Now when we talk about heat from a laser, we do not mean the Goldfinger type that cuts through steel. Patients have minimal discomfort during a treatment, which lasts about 10 minutes, and there are no side effects. You can get right back to your day after a session.
We have seen results in as few as four weekly treatments. In some cases, the affected nails might be filed down first to provide the laser a full opportunity to penetrate beneath and into the fungus. We will determine through a culture analysis whether the fungus has been fully eradicated.
Symptoms, which occur at the site of the bunion, may include:
Thanks to laser therapy for fungal nails, you can say goodbye to concealing your feet and finally kick off your shoes without worry again. New patients receive a free consultation, so you have nothing to lose by discussing your best options with our experts.
No matter how stubborn or long-lasting your fungal toenails have been, we’d love to help you. Contact the doctors at California Foot and Ankle Institute by calling us toll-free:

I was referred to Dr. Fauria by another podiatrist who informed me that my condition was "above his pay grade." He gave me several referrals but, when asked who he would go to if it was his foot, he said "Quinn.".
The surgery was a success and Dr. Furia is the BEST! I am so thankful to him and his staff for getting me back on my feet. I highly recommend Dr. Fauria and Dr. Pettinelli.
Dr. Fauria did surgery on my right foot 6 weeks ago to remove a bunion and plantar fibroma. His work is impeccable. My right foot looks almost exactly like my left foot. He is a perfectionist with his work and I'm grateful the surgery went so well.
* Each individual’s treatment and results will vary based on the circumstances, the patients’ specific situation, and goals.
Dr. Fauria is by far the BEST podiatrist I have ever been to. His wonderful staff and himself deserve way more than a 5 star rating. I have been looking for an honest dr for the past year and have seen more than 5 different podiatrist; From Beverly Hills to UCLA Santa Monica and I am soo happy that I have found this Dr right here in Studio City.
