LASER THERAPY FOR TOENAIL FUNGUS
Do you have thick, yellow, discolored toenails?
Are you embarrassed to wear your open-toed shoes in public?
Chances are you have fungal toenails, a condition also known as onychomycosis.
Fungal toenails are caused by an organism that grows in and under the nail. The fungus likes to grow in warm, moist places like your shoes. Many patients pick up fungal toenail infections in the gym locker room, from a nail salon, wet shoes or from trauma. Fungus can stay in the nails for many years and can be passed from one person to another.
They include topical medications, oral medications, which can have some serious side effects; and the newest modality which is laser therapy.
At Abramov's Comprehensive Foot Care we use laser therapy for fungal toenails which is the easy and convenient treatment that helps turn your discolored and disfigured nails into clearer, healthier looking nails.

INGROWN TOENAIL PAIN
At Abramov's Comprehensive Foot Care, many of my patients fear coming in for treatment of an infected ingrown toenail. They come in with excruciating pain and we get to send them home feeling a whole lot better.
An ingrown toenail occurs when a corner of the nail grows into the flesh of the toe, causing redness and swelling, followed by pain and often infection. Ingrown toenails can occur due to improper trimming of the toenail, trauma or genetic factors.
Treatment for ingrown toenails is performed by gently numbing the toe, and then removing the offending corner of the nail. If you have chronic ingrown toenails, we can remove the root in the office to permanently prevent re-growth of the ingrown portion of the nail.
If you have an ingrown toenail, don't be afraid to contact us. Your treatment will be gentle and virtually painless, and we'll get you back to your normal activities right away.
