Laser Nail Fungus Treatment
Laser therapy is the newest treatment we offer for fungal toenails
and improves the appearance of the nails in many patients. The
laser works by penetrating the nail plate and destroys the fungus
under the nail. There is no pain and no side effects. Best results
and the best looking toenails occur with three laser sessions and
the use of specific protocol.
Compared traditional methods,Laser therapy is a safe, non-invasive
means to clear nail fungus and it is gaining popularity.

During the laser treatment, a laser beam will be slowly directed
across the nail bed. The energy of the laser beam is absorbed by
the underlying fungal colony. This denatures the ennzymes within
the fungus that allows continued growth. You will feel a warm
sensation during the procedure, which lasts 1 minute to 2 minutes
per toenail. There may be some discomfort or a slight pain
sensation but most patients find it very tolerable and no
anesthetic is required.
Only a laser can penetrate the nail with the required effect.
How Soon Will Laser Treatment Clear the Nail?
While a single treatment may be enough, a series of 3-4 treatments,
spaced 5 – 6 weeks apart, is recommended to achieve optimal
results. As the nails resume healthy growth, they will grow in
clear. You will start to see results in 2 – 3 months. Nails grow
slowly – the big toenail can take up to a year to grow from bottom
to top. While you may not see a significant improvement for several
months, you should see a gradual growth of clear nail and achieve
complete clearance in about a year.
What are the possible side effects of laser nail fungus therapy?
Most clients experience no side effects other than a feeling of
warmth during treatment and a mild warming sensation after trec
redness of the treated skin around the nail lasting 24 – 72 hours,
slight swelling of the treated skin around the nail lasting 24 – 72
hours, discolouration or burn marks may occur on the nail. In very
rare cases, blistering of the treated skin around the nail and
scarring of the treated skin around the nail may occur.
