Why choose laser treatment for eradicating stubborn, annoying nail fungus?

Do you want to get rid of your stubborn nail fungus? Our laser treatments may be your best option. Onychomycosis or tinea unguium is a fungal infection that affects finger and toe nails. It is highly contagious and can be very difficult to treat and eradicate. Conventional treatments include toxic drugs and topical anti-fungal medications, which can take months to work and require frequent blood tests. With laser therapy, patients see a improvements in just a few weeks.

  • Symptoms of nail fungus include:

    • Nail discoloration, typically brown, white or yellow
    • Odorous debris under the nails
    • Onycholysis, or detachment of the nail from the nail bed
    • A shift in the nail texture
    • Changes in the nail shape
    • Brittle nails
    • Pain
  • Some common causes of nail fungus include:

    • Closed off footwear
    • Poor circulation
    • Improperly sterilized nail tools
    • Feet being wet for too long
    • Excess sweating
    • Aging
    • Ingrown nails
    • Athlete’s foot
    • Wearing nail polish over damaged nails

How does laser nail fungus treatment work to revitalize damaged nails?

Our Baltimore nail fungus removal works by applying laser heat to the tiny microbes within the fungus cells. This heat is transferred in potent laser pulses, penetrating through the nail to the nail bed. Specific wavelengths are used that help protect the surrounding healthy skin cells while eradicating the fungus.

What We're Doing About COVID-19

At Comprehensive Laser, your health, safety and happiness are our top priorities. We have been monitoring the evolving Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation very carefully. We will be partially reopening the office beginning Monday, May 11th. We will continue to follow updates from local, state and federal authorities and if we receive different guidance we will respond appropriately and notify you immediately.

We have taken a series of precautionary steps to ensure your safety:

  1. We are performing enhanced cleaning and sanitizing of all patient care areas on a regular basis and in between all patient visits.
  2. We will avoid having patients congregate in our reception area. Upon check-in, you will be shown to either a private exam room or consultation room depending upon the nature of your appointment.
  3. All members of our staff are screened daily for COVID symptoms and are asked to stay home if they exhibit any signs or symptoms of the disease.
  4. We screen all patients entering our facility with COVID symptom screening questionnaires.
  5. ALL of our providers wear surgical face masks, plastic face shields and the necessary personal protective equipment to ensure patient and provider safety.
  6. We use hospital-grade disinfectants (Cavi-Wipes, Cavicide) to clean patient rooms and equipment. CaviCide is a convenient, ready-to-use, intermediate-level surface disinfectant that is effective against TB, HBV, HCV, viruses (hydrophilic and lipophilic), bacteria (including MRSA and VRE) and fungi. It can be used in the NICU, operating rooms, isolation rooms, patient care areas and laboratories. When used as directed, it will also effectively clean and decontaminate critical and semi-critical instrumentation.
  7. All of our equipment and protective eyewear are cleaned after every use.
  8. Plexiglass shields will be in place at the check-in and check out areas to prevent aerosol transmission.
  9. We offer "No touch" payment methods such as Apple Pay, Google Pay and online invoicing.

For the time being, we ask that you come to your appointments alone to limit the traffic through the office. We also ask that you leave children in the care of a family member or a sitter. If you have had a recent fever, sore throat, cold- or flu-like symptoms or contact with someone suspected of having COVID-19 please call immediately to reschedule your appointment.

As always we appreciate your support of and trust in our practice and we look forward to seeing you soon!
