Dr. Kelly Geoghan, DPM, serves the Baltimore Metropolitan area for all of its foot and ankle needs. Geoghan’s PinPointe FootLaser is the easy and convenient treatment that helps turn discolored and disfigured nails into clearer, healthier looking nails.
Dr. Kelly L. Geoghan, a Lutherville, Maryland Podiatrist, is pleased to announce the availability of the Advanced PinPointe FootLaser Treatment. The new laser will clear nail fungus in 30 minutes.
“For those suffering the pain and embarrassment of unsightly nail fungus, PinPointe FootLaser is the easy and convenient treatment that helps turn discolored and disfigured nails into clearer, healthier looking nails,” says Dr. Geoghan. “Nail infections can make it difficult to wear shoes and can interfere with walking, exercise, sports and other physical activities. Women and men with nail fungus are reluctant to wear open-toed shoes in summer or on vacation because they are embarrassed by the unsightly discoloration and unhealthy appearance of infected toenails.”
The PinPointe FootLaser offers a painless, convenient and easy way to have healthy-looking and -feeling feet. Here’s what the PinPointe Laser brings to Dr. Geoghan’s patients:
In-Office Pain-Free Treatment
Safe and effective, this in-office treatment is pain-free, has no harmful side effects, and typically takes only about 30-minutes to complete.
Nail fungus is a chronic condition, Dr. Geoghan says, and for those patients with diabetes or immune disorders, it could become a serious health problem. The root cause, which is an infection, is difficult to address with topical treatments because it invades under and inside the nail, which is why so many patients are choosing the laser treatment.
The Science behind the FootLaser
The PinPointe FootLaser kills fungus that lives in and under the nail by directing a laser light through the nail without causing damage to the nail or the surrounding skin. When the toenail grows out, it will become clear, says Dr. Geoghan.
The Process of Healing Toe Nail Fungal Infections
The process begins with a consultation with Dr. Geoghan, who will explain the procedure and will advise patients of follow-up visits that may be required. There is no pain with this procedure. Some have reported a “warming” sensation or a feeling of a slight pin prick. The treatment typically takes about 30 minutes with no “recovery” period.
“Patients are advised to remove all polish and decoration from the toes before treatment,” Dr. Geoghan said. “The infection will improve after one treatment, however visible results will be observed after the nail has grown in to replace the infected nail.”
