Laser Nail Fungus
Laser fingernail fungus treatment is noninvasive, fast and painless!
The Candela Gentle Yag Laser is a safe and effective treatment for nail fungus. It penetrates inside the nail where the nail fungus (dermatophytes) reside, killing the fungus instantly. The laser light passes right through the tough nail plate killing the fungus without pain or damage to the surrounding tissues.
The laser procedure is done right in our office. Procedures usually take 10-15 minutes. They do NOT require any form of anesthesia and are painless. Most patients will feel just minor heat generated by the laser. No pain medication is required after the procedure and you can go right back to work or any activity immediately after treatment. In order to increase effectiveness, for one price, we offer three laser treatments for nail fungus. The second treatment is performed one or two months after the first, and the next treatment is performed one or two months later. You will not see results right away. The laser will not change your existing nails. As the new nail grows in, it shows signs of clearing from the bottom of the nail as it grows. This usually takes 6-12 months depending on how fast individual’s nails grow.
In order to increase the chances of success, we combine our laser nail fungus treatment with the use of the best anti-fungal topical medication which is available for sale in our office. The use of topical anti-fungal medications also helps to prevent recurrence of the fungal infection.
