Traditional treatments such as nail clipping and topical or oral medications can cause many problems. Simply trimming your nails keeps them neat, but doesn’t treat the fungus. Medicated creams need to be applied for 1 to 2 years and do not have a great success rate. Oral medications are prescribed for 3 to 9 months, and while effective, they can produce significant side effects such as liver and kidney problems, loss of taste, headaches and itchy skin. Lunula laser is a fast, easy, safe and effective way to treat the fungus at its source.
