Toenail Fungus Q & A

How do I know I have toenail fungus?

Toenail fungus can show up as yellowed, disfigured, and cracked nails. You may also experience:

  • White spots on the nail surface
  • A nail that has separated from the from the skin underneath
  • A soft and powdery nail surface
  • Brittle or thickened nails
  • Yellow streaks under the nails

Toenail fungus can make you self-conscious about the look of your feet and can make certain shoes uncomfortable to wear.

What puts me at risk of developing toenail fungus?

Nail fungus develops when you’re exposed to a pathogen. If you’ve had nail trauma, worn shoes that are too tight, or are in poor health, you’ve more vulnerable to this pathogen. You can be exposed to in community showers or public bathing areas, such as a pool.

The infection penetrates underneath and inside the nail, making toenail fungus notoriously hard to treat. Topical treatments are usually ineffective in fully reaching the infection.

How does Alma Harmony XL technology work on toenail fungus?

The Q-switch gets to the source of your toenail infection by targeting the fungus that is located deep beneath the nail plate. There are no harmful effects on healthy tissue. The energy of the laser precisely addresses all fungus, bacteria, and viruses underneath the toenail and in the nailbed.

A laser toenail fungus treatment takes less than 10 minutes per foot to perform. In most instances, you require five to seven treatment sessions.
