Fungal toenail infections are a common foot health problem, although many people don’t realize they are suffering from the condition. The disease is characterized by a change in a toenail’s color, texture, or thickness, and may not cause pain. The podiatry specialists at North Texas Foot & Ankle, located conveniently the Dallas metroplex, are proud to offer innovative technologies such as the Hyperblue Plus Nail Laser for treatment of toenail fungus (Onychomycosis) and the Keryflex nail restoration system to improve the appearance of nails damaged by fungus.
Toenail fungus is a common problem affecting millions of people throughout the world. Though often painless, it is a difficult condition to treat due to the fungus spreading inside and under the nail tissue. With the nail tissue being a hard and largely impermeable surface, it can be difficult to get medication directly on the fungus deep within the nail to kill it.
Hyperblue Plus is a specifically designed FDA cleared laser for the treatment of toenail fungus or Onychomycosis.
It uses wavelengths that will penetrate through the toenail and safely kills the fungus living in the nail plate and surrounding tissue. It includes those embedded in the nail beds which are actually under the physical toenail, where excess debris and fungus can accumulate making it difficult to reach with traditional treatments.
For patients who want to wear sandals or have a special event, North Texas Foot & Ankle near Dallas is proud to offer the KeryFlex nail restoration system, an affordable solution to restore the look of toenails and prevent reinfection during the toenail fungus clearing process.
Keryflex nail restoration system utilizes polymer resins combined with special activators to create a durable and flexible artificial nail. KeryFlex can only be offered by certified podiatrists who are trained in this innovative technique. It is a non-porous material, which prevents water from absorbing in the nail and prevents fungus from growing. Traditional acrylic nails allow water to absorb underneath and fungus to develop and grow.
Following the KeryFlex procedure, which takes approximately 10-15 minutes per nail, the patient is able to wear socks, shoes, apply nail polish, etc… The applications generally last between 6-8 weeks or the KeryFlex nail can be removed by the North Texas Foot & Ankle specialists.
Keryflex is not a treatment for fungal toenails, but is designed for cosmetic use to make fungal toenails appear more attractive while the infection clears.
