Ingrown Toenail Removal, Houston TX
An ingrown toenail can be treated at home; however, if the home treatments do not work, you may require an in-office procedure that can be performed at Paramount Clinic.
How It’s Done?
Surgical removal of an ingrown nail involves removing a small portion of the side of the nail and destroying the nail bed beneath. The toe is injected with a numbing medicine, and the toenail is cut to create a new, straight nail edge. The cells underneath the nail will try to grow a new nail, so they must be destroyed, thereby creating a permanently thinner nail. The toe is then bandaged until it completely heals.
