Whether you’re a man or a woman, toenail fungus can be a nightmare. Not only does it look unsightly, it can also make your footwear uncomfortable. As it grows deeper, this dreadful condition can cause the toenails to crumble and fall off. Thank goodness for our laser nail fungus treatment in Evansville, which enables you to zap toenail fungus and resolve the condition.

How laser nail fungus treatments work

At Bella Vi, our specialists treat toenail fungus using a specially designed laser which focuses a narrow beam of pulsating light onto the infected toenail. Once the laser penetrates the toenail, it vaporizes the embedded fungus and clears the infection.

Nail Fungus Treatment Evansville

When will I see results?

Although you will not see results immediately following the treatment, the new healthy nail will soon begin to grow. Within a few weeks, you will see the new nail emerge from the cuticle bed. The growth rate of your toenails depends on your age, circulation, and overall health. Typically, a complete toenail replaces itself every six to twelve months.

Is nail fungus laser treatment painful?

Because the laser is specifically targeted at the fungal infection, it will have no contact with the surrounding tissue, so it will not damage the nail or the healthy surrounding skin. You may feel a slight pinprick, a mild warming sensation, or nothing at all.

FAQ

How many treatments will I need?

In many instances, the toenail fungus is gone with just one treatment. Your specialist will recommend aftercare procedures to reduce the chance of the infection recurring. If you practice good foot hygiene, you will easily be able to keep your toenails healthy and free from reinfection.

What is the recovery time?

There is no recovery time. You will be able to return to your normal activities immediately after treatment.

How long with the laser treatment take?

Your first toenail fungus laser treatment will last for around 20 to 30 minutes. The second and third appointments will take about 15 minutes and are usually spread one month apart.

Can toenail fungus recur?

It can, so it’s important to continue preventative aftercare to ward off another infection.

Can I polish my toenails after I have had treatment?

This is fine providing you use a nail polish that has antifungal properties. If this is not convenient, you should avoid polishing your nails for a week after treatment to prevent moisture from accumulating beneath the polish. A build-up of moisture could encourage the regrowth of fungus.

Your health and safety will always be our number one priority and concern. During the current COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak, we are continuing to maintain the highest standard of cleanliness and sterilization in our office in order to ensure the safety of our patients. This means that our private cleaning service and staff at both Bella Vi Spa & Franklin Family Physicians will continue to ensure that the practice uses medical grade cleaning and sanitizing solutions, as well as increasing the frequency of sterilizing all surfaces in our offices.

At Bella Vi Spa & Aesthetics, we are fortunate to be able to continue seeing patients during the COVID-19 pandemic, as long as it is permitted by current guidelines and safe for both staff and patients. We will also offer any patients the option to reschedule their appointments due to the COVID-19 outbreak without a cancellation fee. We will continue to stagger appointment times and screen patients upon their arrival.

Dr. Goodman and staff will continue to see patients for consultations, injectables and additional upcoming procedures. We will also offer virtual consultations, if needed. We will continue to follow the latest recommendations from the CDC, and we encourage all patients to update health and physical records.

We have hand sanitizer available upon check in, as well as additional sanitizing supplies available in every treatment room for both patients and staff. We ask that patients try to maintain a personal separation space of six feet from others.

Patient health has been and always will be our top priority.
