Clear Toes Clinic Gives You Sandal-Ready Toes With Toenail Fungus Removal in Houston
If you are suffering from toenail fungus, and are concerned about taking Lamisil, a popular medication, a new laser treatment is now being offered in Houston that doesn't come with the risk of liver failure and other serious side effects.
Houston, TX (I-Newswire) January 18, 2013 - According to Novartis, the manufacturer of Lamisil, this medication may lead to liver failure and yet it remains one of the most commonly prescribed treatments for the treatment of toenail fungus. If you are suffering from onychomycosis, also known as toenail fungus, and are concerned about taking Lamisil, a new laser treatment is now being offered that doesn't come with the risk of liver failure and other serious side effects. Adam Lambert of Clear Toes Clinic explains, "Approximately 95% of patients who undergo toenail fungus laser removal in Houston experience significant plate clearance within a three to twelve month period if aftercare instructions are followed."
Many choose to make use of toenail fungus home remedies in an effort to avoid taking medications with dangerous side effects. Although these treatments may be of some help, the success rates are very low. Tea tree oil is one home remedy often used to treat toenail fungus, but, according to the National Institute of Health, only 18% of patients find this remedy to work. Listerine does have antibacterial qualities, but the active ingredients are unable to move through the nail and into the nail bed to kill the fungus. Vinegar and olive oil are two other home remedies many try with limited success. "Visit www.cleartoesclinic.com to learn the advantages and disadvantages of each home remedy along with the low success rates of each," Mr. Lambert states.
Using the Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser, Clear Toes Clinic delivers pulses of high power laser energy through the nail and into the nail bed which is where nail growth originates. This kills the fungus immediately, in just a few billionths of a second, by heating and killing the dermatophytes which make up the fungus. Although results won't be seen immediately, over a three to six month period, the nail will begin to grow out clear and free of infection. The full nail may take as long as 12 months to grow out.
"There are many advantages to choosing laser treatment over oral medications for the treatment of toenail fungus. The procedure is typically completed within one 30-minute office visit and there is no pain when the laser kills the fungus. Normal activities can be resumed as soon as the patient leaves the office and there are no side effects. Patients may feel a snapping, pressure or slight warming when the laser is working, but that is it," Mr. Lambert goes on to say. "Why spend months taking an oral medication with potentially serious side effects when laser treatment resolves the problem in a very short time with no risk of complications? This is an easy choice to make once one learns the benefits of laser therapy."
