Laser Therapy for Nail Fungus
Do you have thick, yellow, discolored toenails? Are you embarrassed to wear your open-toed shoes in public?
CHANCES ARE YOU HAVE NAIL FUNGUS, A CONDITION ALSO KNOWN AS ONYCHOMYCOSIS.
Fungal toenails are caused by an organism that grows in and under the nail. The fungus likes to grow in warm, moist places like your shoes. Many patients pick up fungal toenail infections in the gym locker room, from a nail salon, wet shoes or from trauma. Fungus can stay in the nails for many years and can be passed from one person to another.

SEEK EARLY TREATMENT FOR YOUR INGROWN TOENAIL
Ingrown toenails, also known as onychocryptosis, can be embarrassing, annoying and painful. This common condition occurs when the surrounding skin on one or both sides of the nail grows over the edges of the nail, or when the nail itself penetrates the skin. As the nail digs into the skin, redness, swelling, and pain are often the result.
Many cases of ingrown toenails may be prevented by:
Wearing well-fitted shoes and socks
Protecting feet from trauma when possible
Trimming toenails straight across and avoiding repeated trimming of the nail borders
Keeping feet clean and dry to prevent infection
At Park Avenue Podiatry Associates treatment for ingrown toenails is performed by gently numbing the toe, and then removing the offending corner of the nail. If you have chronic ingrown toenails, our Podiatrists can remove the root in the office to permanently prevent re-growth of the ingrown portion of the nail. People with diabetes, nerve damage or poor circulation should always seek care immediately if an ingrown nail is detected, regardless of the severity.
If you have an ingrown toenail, don't be afraid to contact us. Your treatment will be gentle and virtually painless, and we'll get you back to your normal activities right away.
