CHICAGO, IL, November 22, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Fungal toenails can be embarrassing during the summer months, but that doesn't mean treatment should be avoided during the fall and winter months. With advancements in podiatry, Dr. James Lavell is excited to announce the availability of the PinPointe laser in Chicago. The PinPointe FootLaser is an FDA-cleared, patented Infrared laser that clears nail fungus at the speed of light, without pain, pills or the potential side effects other treatments experience.
"Since fall has taken over and winter is quickly approaching, many of my patients avoid treating their toenail fungus because they no longer have to wear open toed shoes. Now, we wear shoes and boots to protect our feet from the cold, but that doesn't mean you should avoid seeking treatment for your fungal toenails," said Dr. James Lavell, podiatrist in Chicago.
Chicago PinPointe laser treatment can safely treat nail fungus while significantly reducing nail infection. This laser toenail treatment helps Dr. Lavell to accurately and easily treat patients who suffer from discolored, thick toenails caused by foot fungus. The PinPointe FootLaser is safe and effective, pain free and typically takes only about 30-minutes to complete.
Nail fungus is a chronic condition that impacts a person's quality of life and can even lead to serious health complications for those with diabetes or immune disorders. With the PinPointe FootLaser I can successfully treat toenail fungus in no time," said Dr. Lavell, Chicago podiatrist. "If my patients suffer from toenail fungus, I encourage them to visit my office to experience this innovative procedure to say goodbye to toenail fungus once and for all."
Chicago toenail fungus treatment is often difficult because the infection is under and inside the nail, which makes it hard for other treatments to reach and destroy the infection. Using medicated nail polish or oral medications can be associated with side effects or serious drug interactions, while home remedies often fail to resolve the problem. With the PinPointe FootLaser, toenail fungus treatment in Chicago, Dr. Lavell can help his patients say goodbye to fungal nails and hello to healthy, happy feet.
With the recent availability of the PinPointe FootLaser available at Dr. James Lavell's office, patients can receive the care they need and deserve to maintain healthy feet all year long.
