RESTON, VA, July 16, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Leading Reston, VA podiatrists have seen many cases of toenail fungus at their practice. With the introduction of PinPointe FootLaser, the first clinically proven laser procedure for nail fungus, patients can finally eliminate fungal nails without surgery, pain or multiple appointments.
Also known as onychomycosis, toenail fungus is an infection beneath the surface of the nail caused by fungi. Injury to the nail bed as well as walking barefoot in damp areas such as swimming pools, public showers and locker rooms make people more susceptible to the infection. Individuals with diabetes and other chronic conditions are also more likely to suffer from fungal nails. This condition is characterized by thick, discolored, and foul smelling nails. People with toenail fungus often experience pain walking when wearing shoes, as well as embarrassment due to the infected toenails' unsightly appearance and deformity.
Family Foot and Ankle Center specializes in the elimination of embarrassing and painful nail fungus with PinPointe FootLaser. The advanced laser technology directly targets the fungus without pain, with minimal side effects and without injuring the surrounding skin. The entire procedure can be completed in just 30 minutes, and results can be achieved in as little as one appointment.
"Our practice has helped many patients eliminate painful, unsightly fungal nails with the help of our in-office laser technology. Results are dramatic and the entire procedure takes as little as a lunch break to complete. For patients, this means wearing sandals again, walking without pain and finally turning your disfigured toes into clear, healthier looking nails," sad Dr. Richard S. Mendelsohn, Reston, VA podiatrist.
