TOENAIL FUNGUS IS A DISEASE WHICH AFFECTS OVER 10% OF THE POPULATION.  IT SPREADS SLOWLY AND IS EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO TREAT.  TOPICAL MEDICATIONS ARE NOT VERY EFFECTIVE, ESPECIALLY ONCE THE INFECTION HAS TAKEN HOLD.  ORAL MEDICATIONS WHICH MUST BE TAKEN FOR AT LEAST 4 OR MORE MONTHS AND ARE VERY TOXIC TO THE BODY AND CAN HAVE PERMANENT DAMAGE CAUSED IN YOUR LIVER AND KIDNEY.  HARDLY WORTH THE BENEFITS FROM A DISEASE THAT IS NOT LIFE THREATENING, ONLY COSMETICALLY DISFIGURING.

OUR CLINIC HAS RECENTLY INVESTED IN THE LATEST TECHNOLOGY IN LASER FUNGAL TOENAIL TREATMENT.  THE HUGE ADVANTAGE OF THIS TREATMENT IS THAT THERE ARE NO SIDE EFFECTS, ALTHOUGH IT IS NOT INEXPENSIVE.  MODERN DAY LASERS ARE NOT CHEAP.  OUR OFFICE PROTOCOL IS 5 VISITS SPACED 1 MONTH APART FOR A COST OF 1200.  IN THE MEAN TIME BETWEEN VISITS THE PATIENT HAS TO DO HOME TREATMENTS AND MAKE SURE YOU DON'T CONTINUE TO WEAR INFECTED SHOES.  A GOOD WAY TO KILL FUNGUS IN YOUR SHOES IS TO PUT YOUR SHOES OVERNIGHT IN THE FREEZER.  DO NOT WEAR THE SAME PAIR OF SHOES FOR 2 DAYS IN A ROW.  LET THEM THOROUGHLY DRY OUT.

OUR LASER IS FROM ALMA TECHNOLOGIES WHICH USES 2 SEPARATE LASERS IN THE SAME TREATMENT.  FIRST WE A Q-SWITCHED LASER TO KILL THE FUNGAL SPORES AND THEN WE USE A 1064 YAG LASER TO KILL THE FUNGUS OR MYCELLIUM.  SO FAR WE ARE THE ONLY CLINIC IN TORONTO TO BE USING THIS TECHNOLOGY AND HAVE TREATED MANY PATIENTS SO FAR.  PLEASE CALL OUR OFFICE IF YOU ARE SUFFERING FROM TOENAIL FUNGUS AND YOU WANT TO HAVE IT TREATED BY FOOT SPECIALISTS WHO ARE DEDICATED TO THEIR PATIENTS WITH THE LATEST LASER TECHNOLOGY.
