Treatment and recovery for fungal toenails depends on the severity of the infection. The fungus is usually dealt with in two to four treatments—a couple more if the infection is severe. You won’t see an immediate change in your nails following a laser treatment, but that doesn’t mean it did not work. Usually in a few months, when your nail has had a chance to grow, you should see new, healthy nail appearing. Your fungus-free nail will continue to grow and push out the old one, returning your feet to their natural beauty. An infected toenail isn’t completely healthy again until a new nail has grown in, which usually takes six to nine months, though it could be longer. Concerned about how your nails look while they heal? Be sure to ask about the KeryFlex™ toenail restoration procedure offered at Dallas Podiatry Works.
