What does toenail fungus look like?


Toenail fungus is a common condition that affects millions of Americans every year. It will start as a spot that is white or yellow in color, found under the tip of the toenail. It is a fungal infection that will spread throughout the rest of the affected nail, the nail can change color, thicken to a point where it is unable to be cut with conventional nail clippers, and can start to crumble along the edge.

Toenail fungus can affect one or more nails at a time and vary in its severity. Nails that are infected with a fungus will often appear to be a whitish or yellow-brown hue or dark color as debris builds up underneath the affected nail. The nail can also appear to be crumbly, brittle, or ragged along the outermost edge. It can also appear to have thickened and have a distorted shape. Toenail fungus can be treated; however, it often comes back despite being successfully removed.

What are the common causes of toenail fungus?


Toenail fungus is the result of a fungal infection, caused by fungi. There are different types of fungi, with dermatophyte being the one most common to cause toenail fungus. Toenail infections can also be caused by molds and yeast. While more common in older people, toenail fungal infections can affect people of all ages who have been exposed to fungi. In most cases for older people, a toenail fungal infection is the result of the nails developing cracks as the nails get dry and brittle.

The fungi are then able to enter through the cracks in the nails, creating an infection underneath the nail. Toenail fungal infections can also be the result of an athlete’s foot that spreads to the toenails. A weakened immune system, as well as reduced blood circulation in the feet, can also play a role in the development of a toenail fungal infection. The chances of getting a toenail fungus from another person or shared spaces such as a shower or locker room floor are very slim though.

How much does it cost for laser nail fungus treatment?


There are several different treatments for clearing up a case of toenail fungus. Medication is a common treatment option, through the use of oral antifungal drugs, medicated nail polish, or medicated nail cream. While these can be effective, they also can take several months, and up to a year, to fully clear up the infection. Laser nail fungus treatment is now available at Reddy Aesthetics to provide quick, painless, and effective treatment.

Treatment costs with laser therapy will vary based on the number of affected nails being treated and how severe the infection is. Nationally, the average cost can range anywhere from $500 to $1200, with patients seeing significant improvement in their nails following the treatment. Our trained team at Reddy Aesthetics can let you know if laser toenail fungus treatment is the best option for you, and what you can expect from your treatment. They will also provide you with a quote for the cost based on your unique situation. This is considered to be a cosmetic treatment and so most benefit plans will not cover it.

What are the post-treatment recommendations?


Your specialist at Reddy Aesthetics will let you know the best post-procedure care for your toenails to allow the toenail to heal and return to their normal state. Some easy things to do to help reduce your chances of reinfection include: applying an antifungal medication until the nail grows infection-free, cleaning everything your feet may have come into contact with using Lysol, Clorox, or a fungus disinfectant, disinfecting the inside and outside of all of your shoes using a sporicidal antifungal shoe spray and keeping your feet and toenails clean and dry.
