WHITE PLAINS, NY, June 21, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- A fungus can affect any part of the body, but a person's feet are especially vulnerable. When a person wears socks and shoes, his or her feet sweat. As a result, a warm, moist environment is created, which is perfect for toenail fungus to grow in. With the summer season under way, Dr. Eric Peters understands that toenail fungus can get in the way of his patients enjoying the warm weather and trips to the beach. To help eliminate this embarrassing infection, Dr. Peters offers patients in White Plains toenail fungus laser treatment.
"Toenail fungus, or onychomycosis, is a condition that affects around 12 percent of the U.S. population. The symptoms of toenail fungus can range from a mild discoloration on the surface of just one toenail to severe deformity of all the nails," said Dr. Eric Peters, podiatrist in White Plains. "In severe cases, infected nails are so thickened and misshapen that they become painful and interfere with walking. So, this season, I want to make sure my patients don't have to hide their nails, which is why I am happy to offer the PinPointe FootLaser for proper treatment."
Cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the PinPointe FootLaser treatment for fungal toenails successfully treats toenail fungus. Without pain, pills and loss or damage to the nail, laser treatment is performed in one treatment session, successfully eliminating toenail fungus.
Toenail fungus laser treatment in White Plains utilizes a patented laser that is specially designed to penetrate through the toenail and eradicate the fungal spores in the nail bed that are causing an infection. A patient's toenail will not become instantly clear as it may take approximately 8 to 12 months for the nail to grow out and take the fungus with it. However, it is the beginning to healthy, fungus free feet.
"The FDA-cleared, UVA patented infrared laser heals nail fungus safely, quickly and painlessly. Even more so, the powerful laser beam has no effect on healthy tissue, targeting the infection only," said Dr. Peters, White Plains, NY podiatrist.
