Sometimes you need a night out with your friends to relax and unwind from the busyness of life. Coming up April 9, 2014 in Mineola, NY is the The Ultimate Fun Girl’s Night Out at Jericho Terrace. Taste some exquisite wine, sample delicious food, shop, and learn about fashion, fitness, and health. The event benefits the Dress for Success Foundation, and it’s sure to be a fun night out. Don’t let the pain of an ingrown toenail keep you from putting on your favorite dress shoes and enjoying the event.
Your feet should always be worthy of showing off, and an ingrown toenail problem can be unsightly and extremely painful to say the least! This condition occurs when the corner of the nail curves and actually grows into the tissue surrounding the nail. It can result from improper trimming, wearing ill-fitting shoes, sustaining trauma to your toenail, or inheriting a predisposition to this problem.
A nail that is ingrown can cause a great deal of pressure, pain, swelling, and possible infection. We encourage you to visit our office as soon as you notice symptoms, so we can stop it in its tracks. If you are one of those who like to “tough it out” but now have a painful problem, don’t worry, we can help. We have a gentle and virtually painless treatment method where we numb the affected area, remove the ingrown corner of the nail, and then add a chemical to the root to prevent the ingrown nail from returning.
We want you to be able to show off your feet at any time. Learn more about our treatment options for ingrown toenails—we’ll have you on your feet and ready to head out on the town. Contact Dr. Mark Gasparini, D.P.M. today at (516) 804-9038 to make an appointment at our office in Massapequa, NY.
