“I’ve never been able to offer as powerful, effective and safe a treatment as this new laser technology. And the best part is there are no dangerous side effects, no pharmaceutical prescriptions, and it’s achieved during a single office visit,” said Dr. Marc G. Mittleman, founder and director of Bay Harbor Podiatry Group. “I’ve personally seen the embarrassment and shame brought on by this very common disease. Here at last is an effective treatment that allows everyone the chance to show their feet again with pride.”
Dr. Mittleman and his physicians treat all toes on both feet with the laser regardless of infection to eliminate the possible spread of the fungus. Patients can expect to see healthy nails within 8 – 10 months.
Onychomycosis affects approximately 35 million people in the U.S. and almost 50% of the population over age 40. It’s frequently transmitted in nail salons, gyms and other places where people go without shoes. No single or combined topical treatments have proven to be more than 25 percent effective. While some oral medications tout success rates as high as 65 percent, they require three months of treatment and carry a serious risk of liver damage and require frequent blood testing and monitoring throughout treatment.
With Bay Harbor Podiatry Group’s new PinPointe laser treatment, as featured on Good Morning America, patients can resume physical activities and wear normal shoes or paint their nails immediately following the procedure. For more information, visit www.footcareone.com.
