What is Toenail Fungus and What Causes It?

The fungus that causes toenail fungus thrives in warm, moist environments like public pools, showers, and fitness facilities. If you walk barefoot and your skin comes into contact with the fungus, toenail fungus will burrow into and underneath your toenail, causing a fungal infection.

Signs and Symptoms of Toenail Fungus

There are several noticeable signs and symptoms of toenail fungus. Your toenails may appear discolored or dark, may become brittle and deformed, nails may separate from their nail beds, and you may notice an unpleasant smell.

When To See a Podiatrist About Toenail Fungus

Toenail fungus can spread to other areas of your feet and your other toes, and it can even spread to other people by contact with socks, shoes, or bare feet. You should seek out the help of your podiatrist as soon as you notice any of the signs or symptoms listed above.

Treatment of Toenail Fungus

Our podiatrists Dr. Florin Costache and Dr. Lorry Melnick at Cherry Creek Foot & Ankle Clinic may recommend laser treatment for toenail fungus, using the Hyperblue Plus laser system. It works by using heat and light energy to kill the fungus infecting your toenails.

What To Expect During Hyperblue Plus Laser Treatment

During your Hyperblue Plus session, your podiatrist will focus the laser on each toenail. The light and heat energy penetrate the toenail and kill the fungus. Each session takes between 10 and 30 minutes. Many people see results after just one session, but you may need up to 3 sessions to completely kill the fungus. There are no side effects or downtime with Hyperblue Plus Laser treatment.

Why You Should Choose Nail Laser Treatment

When you choose laser nail treatment, you will notice that the treatment is:

  • Comfortable, only destroying the fungus and not the surrounding tissue
  • Fast, taking less than 30 minutes per session
  • Safe, with testing and approval by the FDA
  • Convenient, requiring no downtime so you can get back to enjoying your day

How You Can Prevent Toenail Fungus

The most important thing you can do to avoid contact with toenail fungus is to always wear shoes, including wearing flip-flops in public showers. Also remember never to share towels, socks, or shoes with others.
