New York/New Jersey community residents' foot problems are a top priority for Dr. Edward Tjoe. Check out the new laser treatment Dr. Tjoe has available at his practice!
JERSEY CITY, NJ, February 05, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- With a respected, local practice and podiatry website online, patients can put their best foot forward in 2014. At Tjoe Podiatry, thickened, fungal toenail sufferers should see Dr. Tjoe for K-Laser fungal toenail laser treatment in Jersey City.
A laser emits intensified light for precise application during procedures and non-invasive treatments. Thus, laser treatment/therapy is making its mark in many health fields, offering non-invasive ways to target and treat issues. In the podiatry field, laser treatment is becoming widely popular for the treatment of toenail fungus.
What is toenail fungus?
It's an infection of the toenail or fingernail. It usually affects the toenail because your feet offer a warm, moist environment for the fungi to thrive. Typically, toenail fungus is treated with topical or oral antifungal treatments. Some people choose over-the-counter products while others have went to a professional who can offer the best advice and prescribed solution. At Dr. Tjoe's practice, he uses innovative and non-invasive technology to treat pesky fungi, which patients usually have a hard time getting rid of completely. For this reason, Dr. Tjoe uses the K-Laser to eradicate toenail fungus.
The K-LaserUSA's laser therapy technology is fairly new in the field; however, the benefits of this technology are spreading quickly amongst podiatrists. Dr. Tjoe wanted to take the opportunity and share this laser treatment with his patients. With an established practice, it was the perfect time and fit to install state-of-the-art technology.
How does the K-Laser work?
The K-Laser kills the pathogens that cause the thickened, fungal toenail. This sounds invasive, but K-Laser is non-invasive and requires no anesthetic. You will only feel the slightest warmth when the laser light passes over the nail and nail bed. The light provides the required temperature to increase the movement of hemoglobin, creating energy whilst removing waste. The more energy and oxygen near the affected toenail means the healing process is accelerated.
"The end result doesn't happen all at once. A laser is meant to stimulate healthy nail growth, so fungi don't reoccur. The K-Laser is a drug-free treatment, producing long-lasting relief and improved results," explains Dr. Tjoe, Jersey City, NJ podiatrist.
