Did you know that at least 10% of adults have onychomycosis, aka toenail fungus?

At Aurora Foot and Ankle Clinic we now offer the Lunula Laser by Erchonia for the treatment of Onychomycosis. The Lunula Laser is ideal treatment because it offers effective, pain-free, non-thermal treatment—without side effects of oral medications or dangerous smoke plumes as other hot lasers used to treat onychomycosis.

The Lunula Laser uses patented red and violet non-thermal low-level laser light to treat foot fungus by using photonic energy to modulate cellular reactions.

Each treatment requires very little time or set-up. No down time is needed after the treatment as patients can return to their regular activities between sessions.

Don't wait till summer to treat those toes! This toenail condition can take several months to treat as the average adult toenail takes 9 to 12 months to grow out. Click here to learn more about the Lunula Laser at our clinic.

With summer looming just around the corner, more people are dusting off their summer foot wear and looking at those ten little toes that have been hiding all winter.  Do your toenails look discoloured, thickened, brittle, or misshapen?  You may suffer from a condition known as “onychomycosis”, or toe nail fungus. There are a variety of treatment options available for this often embarrassing and occasionally uncomfortable condition, many of which are painless and affordable.
