A solution for Nail Fungus!

Can you pass the Nail Fungus Test? 

Nail fungus loves to grow in dark, moist places, like our shoes for example! Swimmers, Hockey Players, Runners and other athletes are especially susceptible. Anyone can get it, or should I say catch it? It’s alive and it’s contagious.
How can you catch Nail Fungus?
Nail fungus can easily be spread during the simple process of enjoying a manicure or pedicure, if the previous client was infected. It can also be spread at the pool, the gym or by wearing the shoes of a person who has it.
The technical name is Onychomycosis, which is the medical term for a nail infection caused by a fungus. There are many different species of fungus that can cause Onychomycosis. Once an infection develops, it can be difficult, if not impossible, to eliminate. Nails infected with fungus tend to grow slowly as the infection becomes embedded within the nail bed. 
If you notice any of the following changes in your nails you may have nail fungus:
  • Yellow or brown discolouration
  • White or yellow streaks on the side of the nail
  • Brittleness or thickening of the nail
  • Change in the nail’s shape
  • Crumbling of the outside edges of the nail
  • Debris trapped under the nail
  • Loosening or lifting of the nail
  • Loss of lustre and shine
  • Toes or fingers that are painful, red, or drain pus
Nail Fungus can be eradicated with lasers!
Nail fungus is unsightly and, left untreated, can result in loss of the nail. Traditional treatment involves antibiotic medications that take months to be effective and have been known to cause liver damage. To add insult to injury, these medications rarely get rid of the fungus. It almost always comes back. 
What is Clearsteps™? 
Skinpossible offers a laser treatment known as Clearsteps™ that can get rid of nail fungus. Clearsteps allows us to gently apply just enough bulk heating at the perfect depth within the nail bed to kill the fungus. A series of quick, safe treatments has proven effective at killing nail fungus on the toes and on the fingers! 
Nail fungus can be embarrassing. STOP hiding your feet!
Many men simply hide their feet and many women wear nail polish year round. Keep in mind that while nail polish will hide the discolouration of nail fungus it will not prevent the fungus from worsening. Eventually the nail will still become distorted. It’s best to treat nail fungus in the early stages before the nail starts to crumble or twist. Left untreated, nail fungus will always get worse and will never go away by itself. The laser treatment can kill fungus at any stage and the sooner you get started the sooner you will have healthy nails. 
How does the Clearsteps Laser treatment work?
A series of four treatments performed one to four weeks apart will eliminate the fungus for good! Unfortunately the fungus could be inside your shoes which could re-infect the nails. An inexpensive medical device known as a Sterishoe insert can be placed inside of all existing shoes to kill the nail fungus. Other treatments exist such as topical and oral medications, but your doctor will acknowledge that they rarely succeed. Lasers do work! In fact, if all treatments are completed on a timely schedule (within a 2 month period) and Sterishoes are properly used, we guarantee results. If any sign of nail fungus returns within a year we will retreat without charge!

Tired of Acne and Acne Scars?

Seven ways to say “Goodbye” to Acne and Acne scarring! Acne can be disfiguring, demoralizing and frustrating.  It is common during adolescence but can strike anyone at any age.

Acne symptoms can range from an occasional zit to painful cysts.  Left untreated, it can often result in permanent scarring.  Acne scarring is difficult and sometimes impossible to erase.  Much, however, can be done to control acne and prevent acne scarring.

 Do you have acne?  Do your kids have acne?  If so, I’d like to give you something to think about.  We use braces to correct or prevent crooked teeth, don’t we?  Doesn’t it make just as much sense to do what we can for Acne?  The confidence that comes with having clear, smooth, blemish-free skin is at least as important as a nice smile, don’t you think?  The value is comparable but the cost if far less.

The skin condition known as Acne Vulgaris is classified as Grades 1 through 4.  Many factors come together to cause it.  Excessive production of oil from …

Ultherapy- Non-surgical skin tightening and lifting!

Need a little lift without surgery? Non-surgical skin lifting and tightening!Ultherapy is an award-winning treatment for skin tightening and the only FDA approved treatment in existence for a “lift” indication. It’s in a league of its own and this article will explain why.
The goal of all skin tightening procedures is to cause controlled injury to the skin to induce collagen denaturization and subsequent neocollagenesis. In layman’s terms what this means is that the purpose is to trigger a healing response that will produce new collagen. The greater the injury, the more dramatic and long-lasting the result will be.

Laser:The depth of penetration with lasers is precise but very superficial. The injury that is created is limited to about 1 mm, give or take. Some devices deliver the energy in a non-invasive way for subtle results. Others are ablative and great for resurfacing of the skin. A more detailed explanation of ablative laser treatments is…


With the recent surge in popularity of tattoos and the advancements in tattoo artistry, more and more people are opting to get tattooed.  People get tattoos for many reasons, sometimes after much thought and planning, at other times on the spur-of-the-moment.  The expectation for most is that they will love their tattoo and that they will love it forever.  Unfortunately, that is not always the case.
As the owner of a laser clinic that does a lot of laser tattoo removal I can tell you first hand that sometimes people end up hating their new tattoo from the moment it is completed.  I could tell you many stories of conversations I have had with people who are emotionally devastated when a tattoo does not turn out the way they envisioned it would.  Invariably they express shock and disappointment when they learn what is involved with getting rid of their unwanted ink. 
There is a common misconception that tattoos are just as easy to get off as they are to get on.  Laser tattoo removal ha…
