With summer around the corner, everybody wants their feet to be in tip top shape! Unfortunately, foot fungus can be unsightly and a pain to deal with. If you have thick, yellowish-brown, chipped, or foul smelling toenails-then you may have foot fungus. It affects about 30 million Americans and can have serious consequences, especially for the elderly, diabetics, and individuals with immune deficiencies. The good thing is there is a quick and painless treatment available! While oral and topical treatments have a low clearance rate, laser is proven to be the least invasive and most effective treatment option with a high clearance rate!
