Laser is a safe and effective treatment for onychomycosis (toenail fungus). By targeting the fungus directly, laser gets to the source of the problem immediately.
Traditional treatments such as nail trimming, topical medicine, oral medicine or nail removal have significant drawbacks. Nail trimming doesn’t treat the fungus. Topical medicines need to be applied for 12 months and have a low success rate. Oral medicines are taken for 3 months but can cause liver or kidney problems. Our laser treatment is a quick, easy, safe, effective procedure that treats the fungus at the source.
Tiny pulses of light from the laser pass through the toenail to the fungus underneath. The fungus is irradiated without any damage to the surrounding nail or skin. Most people feel a slight warming sensation during the procedure. No pain medication is needed and most people find the treatment very easy to tolerate.
You won’t notice anything immediately following treatment. However, as your nail grows out, the new nail growth should be clear. Toenails grow slowly – especially nails infected with fungus. So, it may take 6-12 months for your toenail to clear.
