How do I know if I have nail fungus?
Nail fungus (onychomycosis) is a very common infection that presents a variety of symptoms. About 15% of adults have nail fungus. If your nails have become thickened, brittle, flaky, or discolored overtime – it’s likely that you are suffering
from nail fungus.
How does the laser treatment work?
A laser pulses light energy over your nail in a grid pattern. Each pulse of light penetrates through the nail to the nail bed where fungus hides. The fungal colonies in the nail absorb the light laser light, heat up, and are destroyed instantly on contact.
How many treatments will I need?
Here’s the best part – most patients only need one treatment to see results! 95% of patients see significant nail clearance after just one treatment. Some advanced cases may need follow up treatments.
Is the procedure painful?
The laser procedure is painless – it feels like a slight warming sensation. There are no common side effects from the tree.
What results should I expect?
As your nail grows out over the months following the treatment, new nail growth will be clear, healthy, and fungus free. The speed at which you see results will depend on how fast your nails grow. Most patients begin to see results after three or four months. To keep your nails healthy and clear, it is important to follow proper aftercare in order to prevent reinfection.
