The laser treatment is a highly effective way to clear up the nails; however, there is no guarantee the infection won’t come back. Although the laser treatment at Family Foot & Ankle Specialists will be done successfully, many people are re-infected by their environment. The shoes we wear have a pool of bacteria in them which is why it is so common for nail fungus to grow back. Even from the socks we wear and walking around barefoot in public areas are ways to re expose our feet to the problem we had in the first place.
For these reasons, we highly recommend periodic treatment every three to six months with the laser for maintenance. Fortunately, the procedure is painless with no side effects and you can return to your regular activities immediately.
