Perfect Nail Solution in Irwindale, California has recently released information regarding the effectiveness of Photodynamic therapy as a form of treatment for toenail fungus.
Photodynamic therapy (PDT), sometimes called photochemotherapy, is a form of phototherapy involving light and a photosensitizing chemical substance, used in conjunction with molecular oxygen to elicit cell death.
According to Allen Chong, a spokesperson at Perfect Nail Solutions,"There has been an increase in the rate of microbial resistance to treating dermatophytes, the fungus responsible for nail infections. Photodynamic therapy has the potential to treat fungal infections with any adverse systemic effects."
Fungal infections are an important health problem worldwide, affecting both immunocompetent and immunocompromised individuals. Though cutaneous mycoses are rarely life-threatening; they result in significant morbidity, causing discomfort, disfigurement, social isolation, and may predispose to bacterial diseases. They are also recurrent and chronic, with most fingernail fungus treatments having only a 10% effectiveness rate.
According to research published in the US National Library of Health, photodynamic therapy (PDT) is an alternative approach to these antifungal medications that primarily target ergosterol production. It is recognized as a treatment strategy that is both minimally invasive and minimally toxic.
The use of light combined with a photosensitive substance is actually an ancient approach for the treatment of skin diseases. There are documents from ∼1200–2000 BC showing that Egyptian and Chinese physicians, as well as Indian Hindu Ayurvedic practitioners, used combinations of plant extracts with exposure to sunlight to treat skin disorders.
The therapy works by inducing the generation of ROS and RNS, which effectively destroys the cell structure in dermatophytes and induces cell death. It solves the problem of a recurrent infection and is a painless and time-saving way of treating the persistent strains of toenail infections.
Apart from photodynamic therapies, there exist natural nail fungus treatments that can be topically applied such as Perfect Nail Solution's unique 2 step fungal treatment for toenail infections that is made using pure essential oils.
