Are you embarrassed by toenail fungus?

10 May

Toenail fungus affects almost half of Americans by the time they reach seventy. If you don’t have toenail fungus, the person sitting next to you probably does or will have it soon.

Why have these?

When you can have these?

I Googled “toenail fungus” today, just to see what popped up. I was shocked by what I found – tons of web pages devoted to home remedies for fighting toenail fungus. Some of the suggested remedies were:

  • Distilled vinegar
  • Vicks Vaporub
  • Oil Of Oregano
  • Tea Tree Oil
  • Pau d’orco and Goldenseal
  • Colloidal Silver
  • Clorox (yes, chlorine bleach)
  • Urine (yes, you read that right)
  • Lysol
  • Hydrogen Peroxide

Wow! Many of the “solutions” are downright dangerous and can cause any number of nasty side effects. Most of the remedies took about one year to work, which is one heck of a long time to deal with your ugly toenails – 365 days, at least one treatment per day.

Now I will agree that oral medications to treat toenail fungus have some bad side effects in some patients. There are also creams and other topical medications, but they have their downside too.

That’s why East Penn Foot And Ankle Associates became the exclusive provider of the Pinpointe Footlaser in the Lehigh Valley area. Pinpointe Footlaser is an FDA approved device that will kill your toenail fungus and stimulate new nail growth WITH ONLY ONE TREATMENT in almost 90% of patients. That’s an incredible success ratio.

We perform the nail treatment in just one session, on an outpatient basis, with no anasthesia. We only zap the infected area and there is no pain or effect on the tissue surrounding the toenail. There are also no creams to use, topical ointments, or oral medications.

Just think: You walk in, and thirty minutes later your toenail fungus is on its way out. You can even use nail polish the next day. There’s a great video from ABC news on the Pinpointe Footlaser here.

Say “Hello” to walking barefoot again! If you’re suffering with ugly toenails, you don’t need to hide them any longer.  Schedule your FREE consultation with East Penn Foot and Ankle today.
