Arlington foot and Ankle has state-of-the-art treatments as the following videos demonstrate for skin and nail conditions ranging from ingrown toenails, fungal nails(onychomycosis) and athlete’s foot to scars (including laser) and skin biopsies to rule out cancerous lesion to removal of ganglion cysts and other growths in the foot. We have laser treatments for warts as well.
Dr Pearl has a new treatment protocol for ingrown toenails that-are swollen and painful. Antibiotics have been a time honored treatment. Now there is electromagnetic therapy to treat an infected ingrown toenail that can provide immediate relief. You may still need to have the ingrown mail removed surgically but the following video demonstrates how much the treatment can help in the interim.
Arlington Foot and Ankle has been using laser nail therapy to treat Onychomycosis (toenail fungus) for over two decades. The treatment is painless and sometimes requires repeated treatments, Many patients will have significant improvement after one treatment. There are some cases that are more challenging. These may require topical anti-fungal solutions and soaks. We try to avoid oral antibiotics if possible but they can be used with proper health screening. Dr Pearl will make a personalized treatment plan to fit your needs. Call the office at (703) 516-9408 and/or schedule an appointment today.

At Arlington Foot and Ankle we offer laser packages and unlike some promotions allow you to treat individual nails that are affected at a more affordable price if that is all that is needed. Dr. Pearl has over 20 years of experience with laser nail therapy and including medical nail trimming with our laser treatments. We use the Cuterra Genesis laser which helps to ablate the fungal spores. The following video shows the treatment and provides some pre and post-treatment nail tips.
