Look carefully at the picture below...
Can you see the normal nail base. That is one months growth after a successful laser treatment.
You see that the nail is not yellow or white but has a normal appearance. It is a small part of the nail because your nail takes about 9 months to grow out completely.
Some people ask me "Will my nail change color or get less thickened?"
The current nail that you have will stay the same but the new nail that grows out will be different. You will trim the nail at the end as the new nail fills in.
This is the way the process worked for this patient.
1. He came in for a nail examination. He had been on Lamisil pill before without success. He is active and likes to work out and didn't like the idea of taking the pill again.
2. We treated all of his nails but as you can see the 2nd nail looks normal. But just to be on the safe side all the nails were treated.
3. Today we saw him back and retreated all the nails. He was very happy with the new growth of the nail. I will see him back again in 3 months for another exam and laser treatment.
That is all there is to it. Come in for your treatment today.
To your health,
Dr. Donald Pelto
