Our nails can sustain a variety of jobs and daily abuse. However, it is not uncommon for nails to become infected by certain types of fungi that can discolor or destroy them. Nail fungus is a fungal infection in one or more of your nails. An infection with nail fungus may begin as a white or yellow spot under the tip of your fingernail or toenail. As the nail fungus spreads deeper into your nail, it may cause your nail to discolor, thicken, develop crumbling edges and distorted shape— an unsightly and potentially painful problem. Fungi grow in warm, moist places, including public showers, spas, swimming pools, and locker rooms. Once the nail bed has become infected, the nail may also separate from the nail bed, a condition called onycholysis. You may feel pain in your toes or fingertips and detect a slightly foul odor.
An infection with nail fungus has been difficult to treat in the past, but with new technology laser treatments can successfully eliminate nail fungus with just a few painless treatments. The physicians at Skinpeccable Dermatology and Laser Center use the only FDA approved laser that has proven time and time again to effectively turn your discolored and disfigured nails into clearer, healthier looking nails.
