Laser Nail Fungus Training Course

Laser Nail Fungus Treatment Certificate

Laser Nail Fungus Treatment Certificate is a course available at the Laser Training Center in Miami, and it is suitable for Podiatrists, MDs, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, and Medical assistants in dermatology with previous laser Certification and working under the direct supervision of a Dermatology Board Certified.

The clients accept using laser for treating nail fungus because great results have been obtained. Laser light is absorbed into the target area, and heat generated by that energy is sufficient to damage the fungal cell structure while expanding the heat to the surrounding tissue. 

The benefit of using lasers with longer wavelengths is greater tissue penetration than antifungal medication. Thus, they may be more effective at treating infection embedded within the nail. In this course, participants may acquire the knowledge and skills to perform laser nail fungus therapy.

About Onychomycosis

Onychomycosis is a widespread condition affecting individuals across the globe. The prevalence of this nail infection varies significantly between regions due to differences in climate, cultural practices, and access to healthcare.

In the United States, about 14% of the population is affected, with similar figures reported in Europe. In contrast, lower prevalence rates are often observed in Asian and African countries. However, these figures may be underreported due to limited access to healthcare services or lack of awareness.

Nail Fungus Risk Factors. 

Older adults are at a higher risk due to decreased blood circulation, slower nail growth, and more years of exposure to fungi. Patients with diabetes or any condition that reduces blood flow to the extremities, like arteriosclerosis, increase the risk of fungal nail infections. 

By identifying and addressing these risk factors, Nurse Practitioners and other healthcare professionals can help prevent Onychomycosis or detect it early for more effective treatment. Counseling patients on proper foot care, the importance of protective footwear in communal areas, and managing chronic health conditions effectively are vital strategies for reducing the risk of Onychomycosis.

Other factors like occupational exposure and trauma to the nail or surrounding area can make the nail more susceptible to fungal infection. Poor foot hygiene and tight footwear: wearing shoes that don’t fit properly or that don’t allow the feet to breathe can create an environment conducive to fungal growth. Smoking can affect circulation and has been associated with an increased risk of Onychomycosis.
