If you dread wearing sandals in the summer because you can’t bear to show your toes, you are not alone; this problem affects many men and women. Thanks to our new laser nail fungus treatment being bear-foot or wearing open-toe footwear does not have to be dreadful and embarrassing.
If your toenails have changed color, lifted or become thick, you have likely developed a fungus of the toenail. This condition is called "onychomycosis" tends to run in families due to an inherited predisposition, although not everyone is susceptible. For example it is rare for children to have onychomycosis unless one or both parents are infected.
|Benefits of Laser Nail Fungus Treatment:|
Our new foot laser has radically changed the way we treat this stubborn problem. With the use of a patented laser, laser light is directed at the toe to remove the underlying infection. Patients have no discomfort during the procedure and experience no side effects. The gentle laser light shines through the toenail and destroys the fungus embedded in and under your nail. The laser targets fungus-causing pathogens where topical medication cannot reach them.
This procedure does not effect healthy tissue or skin, and majority of patients need only one treatment. Shoes and nail polish can be worn immediately after the laser nail fungus treatment.
Up to now, the typical treatment for nail fungus has been a topical or oral medication. The topical medication is rarely successful in eliminating the fungus and the pills can cause serious side effects. With the laser procedure, patients now have a safe and effective way to eliminate nail fungus. Call us today to schedule a complimentary nail exam and consultation about laser nail fungus treatment.
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.
