How to Cure Nail Fungus (Best in New York City)

A large number of people who suffer from onychomycosis, the medical term for nail fungus, are seeking alternative treatments to cure toenail fungus. Many are frustrated with the lack of results from using over the counter treatments. The risk of potentially serious side effects, severe skin rashes, and liver damage, often deters people from using prescribed oral medications. In order to achieve long term results, a growing number of people are turning to laser treatments. A number of medical offices are offering laser treatments to cure nail fungus in New York City.

Ethical Doctors Providing Effective Treatment for Nail Fungus

Symptoms of a fungal nail infection include thickened, crumbling, or discolored nails. Other conditions, such as diabetes and nail separation, exhibit similar symptoms to fungal nails. Determining whether or not a patient suffers from toenail fungus is extremely important to the success of laser treatment.toenails

If it’s not fungus, laser treatment will not work. The doctors at City Footcare are extremely ethical and will not take your money if something else is causing nail irregularity and will not ‘sell’ you laser treatment.

Medical practices using lasers to cure nail fungus in New York City should perform a nail biopsy during the initial consultation if there is any question whether the problem is nail fungus or not. These practices, staffed by a team of ethical doctors, use biopsies to determine whether the problem is due to toenail fungus or some other underlying issue. If the biopsy indicates an underlying problem, not related to fungal nails, the doctors will not perform laser treatment. Instead they will work with the patient to determine the most effective treatment. If biopsy results indicate fungal infection, laser treatment can begin immediately.

Explaining the Cost of Laser Toenail Fungus Treatment

Having toenails with a fungal infection can be embarrassing. In an effort to cure fungal nails, many people turn to over the counter treatments, which while inexpensive at first, rarely see long term solutions, and cost more over time. Others turn to more dramatic solutions, which can be painful and extremely expensive. Laser treatments, using the newest technology to destroy fungus at the source, have a high success rate and offer long term results. Considering the long term results, the cost of laser toenail fungus treatment is one of the best priced treatment methods available.

Explaining Treatment Cost Of Laser Toenail 

Cost of Laser ToenailThe cost of laser toenail treatment at City Footcare starts at $600. This covers the initial examination, lab work to verify fungal infection, a specially formulated topical ointment (Additional $49), and three treatment sessions. Each session is spaced approximately six weeks apart, over the course of a few months. The success rate of the treatment is approximately 70 percent. If additional treatments are required, they can be scheduled after the completion of the last treatment at $100 each. Most people who undergo laser treatment do require further treatments once their initial three treatments are completed.

If lab work indicates that the patient does not have a fungal infection, they will only be charged for the initial consultation and lab work. ($50 if your insurance does not cover the consultation costs, and $50 for the lab fee if that is not covered by your insurnace.) Payment is due in full before treatment can begin. Using a flex spending account is a recommended payment option, at this time health insurance will not cover the cost of the procedure but do cover the lab biopsy and initial consultation to make the diagnosis. Based on the long term results alone, the cost of laser toenail fungus treatment is a worthwhile investment. At City Footcare, we try to be the most ethical and inexpensive route for treatment by laser for toenail fungus in NYC.Cost of Laser Toenail

We use the most advanced Laser for nail fungus:

The Cutera Genesis Laser is 80 Watts. This is 20 times more powerful than the first generation of FDA approved lasers for nail fungus. The Cutera Genesis 1064nm laser is a safe and effective option for treatment of nail fungus.

The heat generated by the laser penetrates deep inside the nail where the fungus resides. It kills the fungus that causes nail disease (Dermatophytes). It is relatively painless. Most patients report feeling some heat and occasional discomfort. The heat does not damage the surrounding skin.

The laser procedure is done in our office and takes 20-40 minutes depending on how many nails are effected.

No anesthesia or pain killers are necessary and patients may return to normal activity and work immediately after the procedure with zero down-time.
