New Laser Treatment Provides Pain-Free Relief For Toenail Fungus Sufferers
Local Doctor Offers New Treatment That Eliminates Toenail Fungus Right Through the Nail
“Our patients only need one anesthesia-free treatment and then they can immediately put their shoes back on and head back home, to the gym or to the office,” said Dr. Kleis. “That is dramatically different from the old style of treating the problem with drugs or topical ointments.”
According to Dr. Kleis, research demonstrates that more than 88 percent of patients receiving the treatment grew out a normal appearing nail in 6-12 months.
“That’s about the same result as taking the leading toenail fungus prescription drug for three months without all of the nasty side effects potentially affecting the liver and kidneys,” Dr. Kleis said. “It’s a great solution for people that have been suffering from this unsightly problem.”
The typical treatment is about 40 minutes long where Dr. Kleis uses the laser through the nail without affecting the underlying tissue. He carefully treats all of the toes, whether or not each toe has the fungus, to avoid potential cross contamination or the risk of the toe appearing unaffected. Immediately after the single treatment, patients can put their shoes back on or paint their toes without affecting the treatment.
“The laser kills the fungus through the nail and does not cause any harm or injury to the surrounding skin,” Dr. Kleis said.
Estimates are more than 35 million Americans are afflicted with toenail fungus. Dr. Kleis is one of the first doctors in the area to utilize the new effective treatment.
Dr. Jeffrey Kleis, DPM is board certified by the American Board of Podiatric Surgery with offices located in Irvine, Huntington Beach and Beverly Hills. Along with specializing in toenail fungus laser technology, he also is using Sculptra, a dermal filler, for treatment for women who experience pain in the ball of the foot when wearing higher heeled shoes.
