The laser light beam does not harm the nail or surrounding skin. While some patients may experience mild discomfort from the heat the laser generates, usually the treatment is painless, and there is never a need for anesthesia.
On average, our appointments last less than an hour and the vast majority of our patients require only one treatment. Whether you have one nail with fungus or more, we carefully treat all ten toenails to ensure that any pathogens are vaporized. We are committed to providing the best quality laser treatment available to every one of our patients.
Thousands of patients have now been treated throughout the world. Results are showing that the vast majority of treated patients show significant improvement and in most cases, fungal nails are completely cured. Clear and beautiful toenails can be a reality for you!
On average, a toenail will replace itself every 9-12 months. Healthy new growth will be visible within the first 3 months as your nails continue to grow. The laser treatment will not cause your toenails to discolor or fall off.
In the hundreds of patients we have treated there have been NO adverse reactions, injuries, disabilities or known side effects associated with laser treatment. As you may know, oral medication available today for treating toenail fungus carries with it possible serious health risks (commonly the liver and kidneys). The laser treatment for toenail fungus has no known side effects.
Yes - the treatment does not harm you in any way. You will be able to put on your shoes and walk out of the office, just as well as you walked in. You can wear shoes and pedicures are not prohibited after laser treatment.
Nail fungus laser treatment is considered aesthetic and therefore is not covered by insurance plans; however treatment is affordable. The cost for many patients is LESS than expensive prescription medications they have tried in the past, often without success. We offer several payment options and our staff will be happy to answer any questions you have.
