Nail Fungus Treatments

Dr. Bembynista has been treating many conditions, including nail fungus, for over 35 years. He is a former luminary podiatrist for Sciton ClearSense laser. During this time he spoke across the country and developed webinars for the treatment of nail fungus that are viewed all over the world.

Nail fungus has been difficult to treat until recently. The only options before were either oral or topical medications—both coming with their own potentially severe side effects. However recent laser treatments, including laser treatments that Dr. Bembynista uses, have proven to be much more effective in dealing with this condition.

Current studies concerning laser treatment on the nails show that these procedures are effective in 80% to 88% of people. However it can take several months to see results. Laser treatment has been cleared by the FDA for the treatment of nail fungus.

Lasers produce heat which kills the fungus in the nails and the surrounding tissue. The treatment takes less than 20 minutes. It normally takes two to three months to notice a clearing of the nails—as this is the typical cycle period for regrowth of the nail.
