Toenail fungus can spread to other nails and worsen if left untreated. The Foot and Ankle Institute of Maryland offers effective toenail fungus treatment to residents of Annapolis, Washington, DC, Baltimore, and the nearby areas of Maryland.
What is Toenail Fungus?
Toenail fungus is a bacterial infection that gets into the nails through cracks in the nail or cuts in the skin. Since the feet are often in shoes, they are in a warm, moist environment that encourages the growth of fungus. Toenail fungus can cause the nails to thicken, change color, or become crumbly and misshapen. If left untreated, toenail fungus can worsen and spread to nearby nails.
How Much Does Toenail Fungus Treatment Cost?
The cost of toenail fungus treatment, or laser nail therapy, at the Foot and Ankle Institute of Maryland is $100 per nail. We also offer a discount if five or more nails are being treated. We also accept insurance and financing options to make our treatments more affordable.
How is Toenail Fungus Treated?
At the Foot and Ankle Institute of Maryland, we use laser nail therapy to treat toenail fungus. Using precise and painless laser energy, we are able to target and destroy the laser infection in the toenail from the surface. This will eliminate the infection and prevent your symptoms from worsening. The laser treatment can also help restore the appearance of the nail, but it will also return to normal as it grows out.
What is Discolored Toenails Treatment?
The toenails can become discolored due to fungal infections, injury, or other causes. If you would like to improve the color and appearance of the toenails, you can receive the same laser therapy we use for toenail fungus. The treatment also stimulates blood flow which can encourage the healthy growth of the treated nails.
What is Ingrown Toenail Treatment?
Ingrown nails happen when the side of the nail grows into the toe. It can cause pain and swelling, and may require a podiatrist for removal. If you cannot remove it at home, we can provide ingrown toenail removal. After removing the ingrown nail, we will also provide you with a topical solution to help the area heal.
If you need toenail treatment for a fungal infection, ingrown nail or other reasons, contact us today to schedule a consultation at the Foot and Ankle Institute of Maryland. We welcome patients from Columbia, Annapolis and Baltimore, MD.
