This gallery shows different types of toenail fungus.


  • The most common type is called subungual onychomycosis, this is when the toenail fungus gets underneath the toenail and lifts the nail.
  • This can cause damage to the toenail bed, preventing future attachment of the toenail.
  • It is also possible to get superficial white onychomycosis, this is the buildup of white superficial fungus on top of the toenail.
  • It is also possible to get it throughout the entire nail, or the nail is completely destroyed and did.
  • The good news is these are all very treatable!

What Is A Medical Pedicure:

  • A medical pedicure is an evaluation by a podiatrist and foot specialist.
  • Initially a medical assistant will remove your shoes and socks.
  • We will have all our equipment and tools ready for the physician to use.
  • Our physician will then come in and evaluate your foot for any foot and ankle problems.
  • If these foot and ankle problems include ingrown toenails, thick fungal toenails or even a wart – then this is something the doctor can help you with.

What Conditions Are Helped By A Medical Pedicure:

A podiatrist and foot doctor can help you with the following conditions:

  • Ingrown toenails.
  • Fungal toenails.
  • Warts.
  • Corns.
  • Calluses.
  • Thick Skin.
  • Skin Fungus.

How Long Does the Medical Pedicure Last?

  • Generally results should last for about 3 months.
  • If you have any worries about infection or severe pain, then this is another story, you can definitely come in for a visit.
  • If you are in pain, or have issues earlier, then you always are able to call us for care.

Why A Medical Pedicure vs. Regular Pedicure?

  • Podiatrists are here to diagnose and take care of your medical conditions.
  • The focus is on safety and not on cosmetics.
  • If you are here for getting your toenails painted, then you are likely in the wrong place.
  • We use completely sterile equipment, we are here for you if you have what is defined as “at risk foot”: This can mean diabetes, heart disease or a history of infection.
