Over the past 10+ years I had tried topical gels and creams as well as prescription medications like Lamisil to stop the ugly fungal infection living in my toenails. After trying so many different types of treatments I had resigned myself to the fact that I would just have to live with it. Unhappily I stopped wearing sandals and open toed shoes because I was so self-conscious of my yellowed, thick, and jagged toe nails. In addition to looking so horrible, my large toes were tender and painful when wearing closed-toed shoes.At the beginning of this year I started looking on the internet to see if there might be a new treatment that would help me get rid of this grotesque malady. After much searching I found that Dr. Darin Bocian, DPM was the only podiatrist in Tucson that offered treatment using the FDA approved Genesis Plus Cutera Laser, the most effective and powerful laser treatment available.The best part of laser treatment is that there are no negative side effects associated with it like there are with the use of oral drugs. My laser procedure was very comfortable with only a small hot pinch at the end and that immediately dissipated. The pain and tenderness I had been suffering in my two large toes before this appointment was gone the following day after my treatment.
My first treatment was done on March 30, 2012 and I have had two follow-up appointments since then. My toenails are looking much healthier. I am very pleased! It will probably take a few more months in order for my unhealthy toenails to become completely clear. I have no doubt that it will happen.
In conjunction with the laser treatment I also purchased a Sterishoe which is a sanitizer that easily and safely destroys the microorganisms that cause onychomycosis (nail fungus).
I recommend without any reservations that anyone suffering from nail fungus should make an appointment to discuss this new treatment with Dr. Darin Bocian. It is truly a miracle for those of us who suffer and have suffered from onychomycosis.
