Celebrities With Nail Fungus

Toenail fungus, also known as onychomycosis, is a common ailment that affects a large percentage of Americans. In fact, an estimated 36 million people struggle with nail fungus in the US alone. Though the condition is most common in adults and the elderly, it can affect anyone. Even the rich and famous are not immune, and there are even numerous celebrities with nail fungus.

Celebrities With Nail Fungus

Because nail fungus can be spread in several ways, it is easy to pick up. Fungus thrives in warm, moist environments like gyms and spas. It can also be transferred by improperly sterilized tools in nail salons. In 2004, former American Idol judge Paula Abdul picked up a nasty fungal infection on her thumb following a manicure. The infection led to a year of hospital visits, anesthetic injections and medications. Her infection became so painful that even her own hair making contact with her thumb was excruciating. Supermodel Kate Moss also fell victim to a fungal infection spread by improperly sanitized tools at a nail salon. After visiting a nail salon in Chinatown in New York City, she developed an infection in her right big toe that caused the nail to thicken and turn yellow.

Madonna appeared at a recent perfume launch wearing open-toed shoes that showed off what appeared to be fungal infection. Robert Pattinson, star of the blockbuster “Twilight” movies, was reportedly spotted on set walking around with a nail infection. Clearly nail fungus does not discriminate, and no one is immune.

Way Celebrities With Nail Fungus Get Rid Of It

For many people, nail fungus, unfortunately, turns into a chronic problem. The fungus that causes the infection lives deep below the surface of the nail, making it very difficult to reach and treat. Over-the-counter topical ointments are widely available, but they often do not work because they cannot penetrate the nail to kill the infection. Systemic medications are a bit more successful, but it still takes a long time for the medication to reach the site of the infection. In addition, prescription anti-fungal medications come with a long list of dangerous side effects.

When celebrities need to get rid of nail fungus quickly, easily and safely, they turn to laser nail fungus removal treatments. Laser treatments using the Q-Clear laser are very effective, and they have no known side effects. Treatment takes less than ten minutes, and there is no need for any downtime following the procedure. The Q-Clear laser uses an intense beam of concentrated light that can penetrate the nail and destroy the underlying fungus. The laser does not damage the nail or any of the surrounding tissue. Once the fungus is destroyed, the damaged nail grows out naturally and is replaced by a new, healthy nail. Because the infection is completely destroyed by the laser, the condition is much less likely to recur than when treated with other methods.

If you have ugly, thicken, brittle yellow nails, seek out the treatment of celebrities with nail fungus. With the Q-Clear laser, you can stop hiding your feet and wear sandals and open-toed shoes with confidence.
