LASER NAIL FUNGAL REMOVAL

Laser nail removal is a painless procedure for fungal nail infection.

This technique removes only the diseased and damaged nail, not the healthy part of the nail.

laser nail fungal therapy

Laser therapy is a treatment for toenail fungus infection (onychomycosis), a hard-to-treat infection that changes the appearance and texture of the nail.

Fungal infections of the nails usually require several laser treatment sessions before they completely resolve. It may take between six and 18 months of consistent treatments for laser therapy to be effective. While these treatments may cause side effects such as pain and/or bleeding of the surrounding area, they are considered safe.

how it works

Laser devices emit pulses of energy that produce heat. When used to treat onychomycosis, the laser is directed so the heat will penetrate through the toenail to the nail bed where the fungus is present.

  • When the laser is targeted to the area of infection, the heat that's produced inhibits the growth of the fungus and destroys it.

efficacy

Treatment of onychomycosis is considered effective when the symptoms of the infection resolve and there is no evidence of fungus on cultured samples of the toe or surrounding skin.
