LASER THERAPY FOR FUNGAL TOENAILS

The laser light penetrates through the nail and soft tissue to both kill fungus in its path and promotes new nail growth. Once the living fungus is zapped by the laser, healthy nails begin to grow from the cuticle of the nail.  This utilizes infrared radiation which is not painful and it is safe to gently heat the base of the nail. This area of the nail is where the fungus survives.

 

This system eradicates the fungus. Your treatment takes place over the course of nine months. The laser treatment is administered once a week for four weeks and then repeated every three months. The treatment is typically 30 minutes. As the nail grows slowly, it can take approximately 6-12 months for the new nail to replace the old infected nail. It is VERY EFFECTIVE.

Clinical studies show that the laser kills toenail fungus and promotes clear nail growth with a single treatment is better than 80% of cases. The laser treatment is safe, effective, and most patients improve usually after their first treatment.

There are several advantages of applying laser treatment to toenail fungus.  They are:

  • Safe, painless treatment

  • No side effects or drugs

  • No liver enzyme test required

  • No recovery time - just walk in and walkout

  • Only 30 minutes required to treat the toenail fungus on both feet.

The nail must grow out completely to visualize the clearing. It is this new nail that is the clear, healthy nail you will have been looking for. After your nail starts to recover, you should make sure that you avoid any potential of re-infection. There are certain protocols that must be followed at home to prevent the recurrence of the fungus. In the worst case scenario, you can always have more laser treatment for your toenails.
