Excellent natural treatment for toenail fungus:
Laser toenail fungus removal is a revolutionary new treatment method to get rid of toenail fungus. The procedure itself has recently within the last few years received wide-spread popularity because of its relative effectiveness and ease of use.
In the past the majority of treatment options for combatting toenail fungus were both few and ineffective. With the advent of laser technology doctors are now able to eliminate toenail fungus on a localized level targeting the source of the infection directly. Before other options that existed for getting rid of toenail fungus included procedures such as oral medications and surgical excision, all of these had a very low success rate.
The problem with oral medication was that it caused great harm to the liver for a large percentage of the individuals that consumed the medication. Often times the risk of liver damaged caused many toenail fungus suffers to continue living with their condition. Another possible downside of anti-fungal oral medication was that while the patient was using the medication, usually 3-4 months, they were unable to consume alcohol.
The surgical excision of the fungus area procedure proved to be expensive, painful and relatively ineffective. The surgical excision of the toenail has typically been performed in attempt to remove the fungus completely. While this might in theory seem like a good idea, the problem lies in the susceptibility of the toenail in becoming re-infected. Because of a actual surgical procedure that was occurring the patient would also experience downtime because of the wounds and pain associated with the procedure.
With the user of lasers a lot of the downsides faced by both taking oral anti-fungal medication and surgical excision have been solved. With the laser the doctor can offer the patient a fast and effective method of eradicating the toenail fungus in a pain-free environment. Not only is there no pain, but the patient doesn’t experience any downtime.
