Although laser treatments and topicals may improve severely affected nails, more often than not we find most patients opt for our proprietary NovoNail Restoration procedure. This laser-based surgical procedure works in 9 out of 10 cases, even with the most challenging of nails.
Severely affected nails can become too thick for lasers and/or topicals to penetrate effectively. The fungal infection can also cause damage to to the nail bed, making it hard for a nail to grow properly. If you think you may have a fungal infection in your nails, you should consult a NovoNail provider to schedule a consultation. Toenail fungus is highly contagious and can spread to other nails or other individuals fairly quickly. See the related resources below to learn about other ways to stop the spread of fungus, reduce risk of recurrence, and/or prevent infection altogether.
