Most podiatrists believe nail fungus is either genetic or a byproduct of forgetting to put your feet back in the refrigerator at night. Walk it off with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $149 for three laser fungus-removal sessions for up to 5 toenails (a $695 value)
- $249 for three laser fungus-removal sessions for 6–10 toenails (a $995 value)
During each 30-minute session, a specialist aims a Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser at offending digits. In increments of about nine billionths of a second, pulses of light penetrate the nail with no damage to the surrounding skin. Though existing nails will look the same after the treatment, new nails grow in clear over the next 6–12 months. Treatments cause little to no discomfort and require no recovery time.
Foot & Ankle Wellness Center
Three podiatrists team up at Foot & Ankle Wellness Center, where they treat bunions, perform diabetic care, and clear up cloudy nails with a host of services. With the help of a staff of podiatric assistants and therapeutic shoe fitters, the doctors treat common foot ailments including stress fractures, ingrown nails, hammertoe, and MC Hammer toe.
Instead of rushing to the medicine cabinet, the good doctors sift through the available options, such as dietary changes for gout or a regimen of icing, supportive taping, and bracing for flat feet. Nail fungus, which traditionally has been treated with pills that can cause severe harm to the liver, gets a high-tech going-over with specialized lasers that depose unsightly talons to reinstate their clearer cousins.
