Ugly Toenail (Fungus) Laser-Medical Treatment Center of Excellence

LifeStyle Podiatry is a Center of Excellence for diagnosing and treating Fungal, Ugly or Dystrophic Toenails. The treatment programs are custom tailored to each patient’s needs.

The facts are that Onychodystrophy can occur from one or more causes with an infection with microscopic plants called fungus being primary, secondary or uninvolved in different cases.

We have studied dystrophic toenails for over 40 years and have developed a well rounded six month program (that’s how long it takes for a toenail to be totally replaced).

The inside of the toebox of the shoe (not gymnasiums and showers) is a breeding ground for dystrophic toenails for many reasons:

  • Shoe pressure and repetitive microtrauma (RMT)
  • Excess sweating
  • Low immunity to fungal infection
  • Pre-existing Athletes Foot (The same organism as Ugly Toenails)
  • Dermatological Pathology such as Psoriasis and Melanoma
  • Bacterial infection (Green Toenails)
  • Inherited Biomechanical Pathology (Involves mostly 1st and 5th toenails)
  • Poor Habits (Toenail picking, not changing socks or shoes)
  • Poor Circulation or Poor Oxygenation of Toes




  • This means that a wellness based program for curing and preventing recurrence of ugly toenails, like oral plaque, must be custom, ongoing and patient based. No one laser treatment, shoe adjustment, foot orthotic, topical or oral medication or foot powder will work.

    Treatment can consist of one or more of the following:

  • Laser Treatment
  • Biomechanical Treatment (Orthotics)
  • Surgery
  • Topical Medications
  • Shoe and Sizing Adjustments
  • Reducing Sweat
  • Oral Medications
  • Athletes Foot Treatment


  • Treatment of Dermatological Pathology (Psoriasis)



    Only a Podiatry Center of Excellence like the one at LifeStyle Podiatry can diagnose, conform, educate, treat and prevent recurrence of your ugly toenails.

    If you have had a difficult time curing and controlling your ugly toenails in the past, an appointment at LifeStyle Podiatry should be your next option.

    Lifestyle Podiatry is a podiatry practice tailored to the needs, coverage & pocketbook of every foot. All our doctors accept many different kinds of medical insurance. If one does not, we will accommodate you by allowing another doctor to treat you. Please call us if you have any questions about a particular insurance, as we most likely accept it.
