A common and frustrating condition, toenail fungus can make your nails discolored, thick, and brittle. It can also cause your toenails to separate from the nail bed, leading to further discomfort and other problems.
Like the fungus that causes Athlete’s foot, toenail fungus is a living and growing organism. This means that it can take a while between when your feet come into contact with the fungus and when you see or feel symptoms on and under your toenails. But when those symptoms do make themselves known and you look down to see unattractive, fungus-damaged toenails, you’re going to want to do something about it.
At JAWS podiatry, we can help you get the fungal-free nails that can get your feet back in sandals through a revolutionary, safe, and powerfully effective treatment for toenail fungus called PathFormer.
PathFormer Attacks Fungus Directly
You can find plenty of prescription and over-the-counter anti-fungal medications that you can use to treat toenail fungus. The problem is that you are trying to address a condition that exists underneath the nail. Nail fungus lives not only in the many layers of your toenails but also in the nail bed itself. With the nail standing in the way, topical creams and ointments can have a hard time reaching the source of the infection.
PathFormer removes that literal barrier to treatment by applying the medication directly to the fungus underneath the nail.
How Does PathFormer Work?
The key to PathFormer’s power to kill toenail fungus is its use of Controlled Micro Penetration (CMP) technology.
During a PathFormer procedure, our podiatrists use a computer-controlled device to produce micro-holes in the nail – just 0.4mm in diameter – without touching the skin and nail bed below. These holes allow the anti-fungal solution which we prescribe to reach and attack the infection directly with much higher concentration levels than if applied topically.
The procedure is safe, painless, and quick. There is no bleeding or bruising. So long as you apply the medication as directed, you should see results as early as two weeks.
