Nail fungus, also known as onychomycosis, is a condition in which one or more of the nails of the fingers or toes become infected with fungal organisms. This causes a yellowing or other discoloration of the nail as the fungus moves deeper into the tissue. Nail fungus can be painful and may eventually lead to the separating of the nail and nail bed, a condition known as onycholysis. Toenails are particularly susceptible to infection because they are often kept in warm, moist environments in which these microscopic organisms thrive. At Chiropody Center we are using the latest laser technology treatment developed in Germany. Light from the laser filters through the nail and the adjacent tissue. Pigment in the fungi absorbs the light, heating it and harming the organism. The elimination of fungus will allow your nail to grow normally.
