Let’s Learn the Facts About Lasers: Powerful Podiatric Tools

Lasers have a reputation, and it’s not exactly a friendly one. At best, people think “Star Wars” when they hear the word. At worst, they’ll recall a news story of someone recklessly blinding an airplane pilot! But did you know that lasers actually have many therapeutic uses?

At Desert Podiatric Medical Specialists, we’re well aware of just how helpful lasers can be in treating podiatric problems. Take a look at the info below to learn more about how lasers can protect your feet!

Fighting Fungus

One of the primary applications of lasers in podiatric medicine concerns the dreaded fungal toenail. This nasty infection gets under the surface of a nail and then spreads to other ones nearby. In time, it causes pain, unpleasant odor, and discomfort when walking or putting on shoes.

The nail thickens while it changes color, and the problem won’t simply go away if left untreated. Because they are contagious, fungal toenails should be dealt with promptly. And although it may be tempting to purchase over-the-counter creams, they’ll merely manage symptoms, nothing more.

PinPointe FootLaser to the Rescue!

Other treatment options exist, but the PinPointe FootLaser is probably your best bet for fast, effective resolution of a fungal toenail. It works simply:
