“Penetration” is the Key to Treat Toenail Fungus

Toenail fungus is a relatively common nail condition American people have. Unfortunately, there is an abundance of pseudoscience for the treatment of the nail fungus, such as applying hydrogen peroxide, bleach, lavender, essential oil, and vinegar to the nail.

Nail fungus is a fungal infection UNDERNEATH the nail, so whatever we use should get through the nail plate and reach where the infection is. So, it does not matter what you use, but it has to penetrate through the nail.

For the same reason, antifungal creams do not necessarily cure the nail fungus – if the cream was not made to penetrate the nail plate, it cannot reach the fungus and cure the fungal infection, even if the cream does kill the fungus.

For this reason, laser nail treatment is actually a very effective and efficient option to kill fungus and treat the infection – Because the laser will go through the nail plate and target the fungus and kill them. Learn more about the laser at “About PinPointe Foot Laser” tab on our website.
