Nail fungus can take several forms including thickened, brittle and discoloured nails. Whether you have a mild or severe fungal infection, each case has the potential to cause discomfort, embarrassment and, in some cases, more serious concerns. Because of these possible complications, effective nail fungus treatment from professionals with medical knowledge of the causes and symptoms of fungal infections is imperative. In this article, we’ll look at treatment options, including oral antifungal products and laser based treatments from Canada MedLaser Clinics with a ranking system for how effective each method is for eliminating fungal infections.
Laser Nail Fungus Treatment
While not a common treatment, laser nail fungus treatment is fast becoming the preferred method for removing fungal infections quickly with aesthetically appealing results. Along with being pain free and requiring substantially less time than other treatments, the laser method also has the advantage of only targeting affected cells without killing healthy tissue and having no side effects.
Limitations: The primary limitation of laser nail fungus treatment is that it can be more expensive than other treatments. However, because its rate of effectiveness and aesthetic results are much more reliable, laser treatment is likely to save you time and money in the long run over trying other, inferior methods first.
While each nail fungus treatment option has the potential to be effective for some users, not every single method will work for nail infection. Overall, laser treatment has proven to be the most effective in regards to long term results, aesthetic appeal and minimal side effects – with nail polish being the least effective, creams and then oral antifungals coming in second place.
