Stop Hiding Your Feet: Beat Fungal Toenails

Fungal nailsWith the dry, desert heat now routinely cracking the upper 90s and beyond, it’s no surprise that the shoes and socks of Coachella Valley are spending more time in closets and dressers these days, replaced with open-toed footwear.

Many people, however, might resist the switch to sandals despite the heat—because of fungal toenails. This unsightly, embarrassing condition can cause nails to look dull, yellowed, thick, crumbly, or even warped or misshapen. The fungi can be encountered (and contracted) from exposure to the damp environments that they love (like locker rooms or sweaty shoes), and they can really dampen your spirits, too.

There’s good news, though: you don’t have to hide your feet forever. Modern laser treatments, such as the one offered by Dr. Harvey Danciger in Palm Desert, CA, are now able to combat this frustrating condition safely and effectively, with nails that begin to visibly improve after just a few treatments.

In the past, many people were between a rock and a hard place with fungal toenails—the only treatment option with a decent chance of success was traditional oral antifungal pills. You’d have to take them every day, and they could have some pretty nasty side effects. With such a poor option, many chose to just live with their embarrassing condition.

But our laser has completely changed the game. There’s no pain, no known side effects or risks, no pills to take, and the overall success rate is much higher. Just six easy 10 to 40-minute sessions, depending on the number of toenails being treated, are enough for most people to totally eradicate the underlying infection and begin growing clear, healthy nail tissue to replace the damaged portion.

With these modern treatment advancements, there’s no reason to keep hiding your toenails forever. Let us help you get your confidence back and ready to show your feet proudly again.
