Cutera laser treatments A dream of summer, sand, and soft waves sounds like the ideal way to spend a relaxing vacation. However, there are risks of bringing home an unwanted souvenir—nail fungus.

From bayside docks, shoes sweaty from hikes, and barefoot adventures, summertime pleasures can endanger your feet. Luckily, Foot Doctor of the East Bay makes eliminating summer vacation nail fungus easy!

Preventative measures like wearing sandals by the public swimming pool and regular showers work to stop fungus from forming on your feet. However, high-risk areas and activities can still sometimes result in unwanted infections. When this occurs, it’s important to weigh the options, and pick a plan that’s right for you.

Treatments for nail fungus can include antibacterial and antifungal pills or lacquers applied directly on to the infected area. However, there is another non-invasive procedure available known as a Cutera laser.

With this procedure, the toenail is first treated with a form of acid. Next, a concentrated beam of light is directed at the infected area. This reduces discoloration and pigmentation caused by fungus, and leads to nails that are clearer and healthier in appearance. Cutera laser treatments are FDA approved to provide patients with an alternative to traditional prescription-based options.

While it is always best to consider which treatment plan is best for your body and your feet, choosing Cutera offers several benefits, including efficiency and speed. This means you can get back to enjoying your summer faster!

If you have questions regarding nail fungus treatment, call California’s Foot Doctor of the East Bay and schedule an appointment with Dr. Michael Stein or Zeindelin Ahmad, DPM today. You can also visit us online or at one of our convenient locations in Pleasanton, San Leandro, or Los Gatos CA today.
