Fungal toenail infections are common and can happen to anyone. While minor toenail fungal infections can sometimes heal on their own, it's best if you seek podiatric treatment.

Eliminate Fungal Infection

Sometimes, untreated toenail fungus infection can recur, and when it does, it may be a more serious bout than the previous infection. The good news is, with podiatric treatment, you will be able to improve foot health and prevent the embarrassment of having infected nails.

At Newport Foot & Ankle Center, our podiatrists are immensely experienced in treating toenail fungus in Anaheim. We use state-of-the-art PinPointe FootLaser technology to eliminate existing infection, reduce recurrence and facilitate fast healing.

Why Does Toenail Fungal Infection Occur?

Fungal infections typically occur when fungus enters our skin or the cracks in our toenails. Aging can cause our toenails to become brittle and start to crack. Fungus can then enter our nails and cause infections in the nailbed.

Additionally, fungus grows in humid and warm places. When our feet are clad in shoes, and we play sports, exercise or indulge in any physical activity, our feet start to sweat. This can result in conditions like athlete’s foot, where fungus grows both under the nails and in between your toes.

Conditions like psoriasis, diabetes or a weakened immune system can make you more susceptible to toenail fungal infections. Also, if you walk barefoot in communal places, you’re very likely to catch fungal infections due to the unsanitary conditions.

Signs You Have Toenail Fungus

  • Yellow-brown discoloration of toenails

  • Foul smell emanating from toenails

At Newport Foot & Ankle Center, our PinPointe FootLaser treatment can help quickly treat toenail fungus in Anaheim.

How Does the PinPointe FootLaser Treatment Help?

The PinPointe FootLaser is an FDA-approved treatment for toenail fungal infections. It can eliminate the fungal infestation and improve the health and appearance of your toenails significantly. This is a non-invasive and safe procedure that most people can undergo with ease.

The PinPointe FootLaser beam treats your nail by targeting the fungus growing on your nail bed. Most other treatments for toenail fungus involve topical applicants, which don’t reach deep inside the nail bed. This can make them either not as effective or take very long to work. The beams of the PinPointe FootLaser, on the other hand, pass through your toenail without damaging the toenail or the surrounding tissues. The laser beam destroys the fungus infestation under your nails.

How Long Does the Treatment Take?

The entire PinPointe FootLaser procedure takes about 30 minutes to complete. There is no downtime; you can return to your normal schedule later. Before your treatment for toenail fungus in Anaheim, please remove any nail polish. However, you can apply a fresh coat immediately after.


While your toenails won’t change in color immediately, you’ll begin to see a gradual difference in the way your toenails look and feel over the period of the next few weeks. A single treatment is highly effective in eliminating most of the fungal infection. Our podiatrists may recommend a follow-up treatment if needed.

Does Toenail Fungal Infection Recur After Laser Treatment?

Toenail fungal laser treatment can help treat current infections and reduce the recurrence of future infections. But this doesn’t mean that your toenails will be permanently protected from potential fungal infections. This is all dependent on how well you care for your toenails after the procedure. Our podiatrists will provide care instructions that you will need to follow.
