From medicated nail polish and creams to oral antibiotics, to countless home treatments—you’ve tried everything. If you suffer from nail fungus and have tried to cure it without success, you’ll be glad to hear that there is another option available. Weil Foot & Ankle offers PinPointe FootLaser Treatment in Merrillville, IN, and it’s a groundbreaking new treatment in the podiatric world.
It’s often difficult to get rid of nail fungus because topical creams and nail lacquer can’t get to the infection inside and under the nail. However, the PinPointe FootLaser is a carefully designed device that uses a laser beam to go under the nail to attack the infection that causes Onychomycosis (fungal nails) at its source—the nail bed. The laser vaporizes the germs causing the fungus without harming healthy tissue.
The treatment is virtually painless, can be done in the office without anesthesia, and is extremely effective for stubborn nail fungus cases. Over 80% of patients treated with PinPointe have shown substantial improvement and most fungal nails are completely cured!
In addition to its effectiveness and convenience, laser treatment has not been shown to have any adverse effects unlike traditional fungal treatments. Oral fungal nail treatments come with their own risks (usually negatively affecting the liver and kidneys) and tend to cause drug interactions. PinPointe treatment is a great option if you want to avoid the risks of side effects. It is also a great choice for individuals with diabetes that could not otherwise attempt treatments like medicated nail polish.
This treatment is FDA approved and backed by significant clinical research. Our doctor Catherine Halinski, DPM, is a certified PinPointe FootLaser provider. Weil Foot & Ankle can offer you safe and effective fungal nail treatment with PinPointe FootLaser today.
