Nail Fungus Treatment
Using a revolutionary laser treatment, in less than 15 minutes we can treat the pathogens that cause nail fungus. This leaves you with significant improvement in the health and appearance of your nails. There are no side effects and the treatment does not harm the nail or the underlying skin. It is over 80% effective and typicaly only 3 treatments are required.
How does the laser work?
The laser is specially designed to shine through your toenail and destroy the specific pathogens embedded in and under your nail causing the fungal infection (Onychomycosis). The laser operates in the very tight spectrum of near infrared light. Unlike other lasers that are used for skin or pain treatments, the laser that treats nail fungus is designed and used for only one purpose; to safely destroy molds and bacteria that cause Onychomycosis.
Is it painful?
The gentle laser light beam has no effect on healthy tissue. There is no pain but some patients may experience temporary warmth in the nail during treatment. This treatment does not harm or affect your activity in any way.
Does it really work?
In the first clinical study, 88% of the treated patients grew out a normal looking nail after one treatment. After the one treatment, the nail plate should grow out normally in 8-12 months if there is a healthy nail bed. This result is better than the results reported for the oral pill, Lamisil, which you take for three months with some risk of side effects.
Is the treatment safe?
There are no age or health restrictions or limitations. In clinical studies there have been no adverse reactions, injuries, disabilities or known side effects. As you may know, the oral medications now used to treat toenails must be taken daily for months and carry with them some risk of systemic involvement or side effects that can affect the liver, kidneys, and skin. This laser does not. Some lasers need to be cooled with a spray because of the heat buildup or they are so low powered, they do not kill fungus. This laser is safe and effective.
Does my insurance pay for this?
Because this treatment is considered aesthetic, health insurance plans do not cover this treatment.
