toenail fungus

fungus to fabulous

in as little as six months


Do you wish you could wear sandals, but are embarrassed about your toenails?

Toenail fungal infections are unsightly and embarrassing – the nail becomes yellow, thickened and hard to cut and is often accompanied by foot odor from fungal debris under the nail.

Toenail fungus is a common infection under the toenail. The infection breaks down the keratin in your nails and causes flaking and discoloration. Sometimes, your nail has an unusual odor and feels uncomfortable over time.

Toenail fungus is contagious & very hard to get rid of.

Toenail fungus doesn’t usually cause pain, but it can cause your nails to become:

  • Brittle
  • Ragged
  • Misshapen
  • Thickened
  • Dull

Walking barefoot around pools, saunas, public bathrooms, and locker rooms expose your toenails to infection. Direct contact with footwear or infected feet also spreads fungus.

Fungus that causes a toenail fungal infection thrive in warm, wet areas. The health care team at Next Step Foot & Ankle Clinic suggest wearing shoes and washing your feet to prevent the spread of infection once you’re diagnosed.

At Next Step Foot & Ankle Clinic, the team examines your feet and toes for symptoms and signs of infection in your toenails.

They scrape a small sample of your nail keratin and perform tests that confirm a fungal infection.

Treatment for your nails begins right away with a customized plan for ridding your toenails of fungus.

Toenail Fungus


treatment options

Toenail fungal infections are very common; affecting about 15% of the U.S. population. Until recently, most treated fungus with either topicals, laser therapy, or oral medications. 

Unfortunately, there are frequent failures using only one kind of treatment. Fungal infections are tough to cure and require multiple kinds of treatments at the same time, over a period of time.

If you’ve NOT had success with getting rid of your toenail fungus, a combination of treatments may be just what you need! 


At Next Step Foot & Ankle Clinic we’ve packaged together the best of those treatment combinations with a “From Fungus to Fabulous in Six Month’s” package to get you ready to show off those bare feet.

5-step approach to fabulous toenails:



Laser Therapy quickly helps kills the fungus that lives in and under your toenails and when used with creams and sprays, it’s effective in getting your nails back to looking normal.

Depending on the severity of the fungus, we typically recommend two Laser Therapy treatments, 30-days apart at 15 minutes each treatment.




Anti-fungal skin cream is a treatment that kills fungus on the skin of your feet.

It moisturizes and exfoliates the skin on your feet, making it elastic, supple, and resilient. It cools any burning or itching the skin on your feet may have a well as keeps your skin free of fungus and looking great!

It’s recommended to be used daily until your fungus is clear.



An anti-fungal nail cream is a treatment that is absorbed into your toenail. It treats the bed of the toenail, preventing new fungus growth.

It’s recommended that you apply a thin layer daily on the healthy and unhealthy part of the nail until your toenails are fungus free and fabulous.



Your toenails are going through radical changes. They need to regrow healthy, strong, fabulous and fungus-free.

TheraNail is a vitamin supplement that ensures strong, healthy toenails during and after your fungal treatment.

We recommend taking one pill daily beginning with your first Laser Therapy treatment.



Did you know that your shoes carry fungus that contribute to shoe odor and recurring fungal infections?

It’s recommended you start spraying ALL your shoes prior to Laser Therapy treatments and continue until your shoes are odor free.
