Whether you’ve been dealing with a nasty fungal nail for a while, or your toenails insist on becoming ingrown despite all your efforts to prevent it, there’s something you should know:

You don’t have to keep living with toenails that interfere with your daily activities and hold you back from doing the things you love!

In fact, if your toenails are giving you grief, the best thing you can do is seek professional treatment as soon as possible. While fungal nails are highly contagious and often difficult to get rid of, recurring ingrown toenails are usually caused by underlying issues that also need to be addressed in order to prevent toenails from going wayward in the future.

And the good news is we provide solutions to a wide range of toenail problems right here at our office – from topical medications, to surgery, and even advanced treatments like Hyper Blue laser therapy for those stubborn cases of fungal nail infection.

Treatments for Ingrown Toenails

When it comes to treating ingrown toenails, many of us are able to resolve the problem using at-home remedies, like foot soaks, or simply letting the situation take its course. If these methods work well for you, and you don’t consistently experience ingrown toenails, then great!

But this is not always the case for patients who have abnormal foot structures which make them more prone to developing ingrown toenails in the first place. At-home remedies will often fail to work – and when this is the case, toenails will consistently become ingrown without professional intervention.

Some treatment options we offer at Advanced Foot Care include:

  • Carefully lifting the nail to allow extra relief and faster healing.
  • Partially removing the nail with a local anesthetic.
  • Prescribing topical and oral medications.

We may also recommend some simple changes in footwear, and give you some pointers on proper ways to trim your toenails. (Now, we know what you’re probably thinking: “Who needs help with toenail trimming?” But you’d be surprised at how many people cut nails too short, or round out the corners – both of which you should never do.)

Hyper Blue for Fungal Nails

On a different note, we also offer advanced treatments like laser therapy for fungal nails. The Hyper Blue laser treatment uses very specific light energy to kill the fungus underneath the nail, at its very source – something topical medications often have a hard time accomplishing.

What’s even better, studies have shown that Hyper Blue laser therapy is one of the best treatment options available for patients suffering from unsightly fungal nails. And with a success rate of up to 90 percent in clinical trials, Hyper Blue laser therapy is really a no brainer!

Some additional benefits, include:

  • Quick treatment sessions – lasting about 15 minutes.
  • No need for recovery period – once you’re done with a treatment session, you can walk right out the door and resume your normal activities.
  • No known side effects or pain associated with treatment – Hyper Blue is FDA approved and completely safe.
  • Patients experience much quicker results – many start seeing results in only a couple months!

This, of course, does not mean your nails cannot become infected again during treatment – if you have toenails, there is always a chance of infection. So it’s important that you take measures to avoid coming into contact with contaminated surfaces and environments both during and after treatment.

You can easily do this by wearing sandals or shower shoes when walking in public areas, like locker rooms and pool decks, as well as washing and drying your feet thoroughly every day and alternating between pairs of shoes to allow enough time for them to dry out completely.
