An estimated 23 million people in the United States struggle with onychomycosis, commonly known as toenail fungus. Once fungus gets under a toenail, it's difficult to treat. Topical treatments don't always work and oral medications carry a risk of side effects and can be hard on the body.
Now there is a revolutionary laser treatment that is fast becoming the industry standard. For the first time, there is a solution to toenail fungus that does not require expensive medication or ointments, and there are no known side effects. This laser treatment has helped thousands of patients with great success. This amazing procedure can cure nail fungus with only one laser treatment. It doesn't hurt and anesthesia is never needed. Shoes and nail polish can be worn immediately after treatment.
You deserve to have beautiful feet and we would love to help you!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Below is a list of some questions we get asked a lot and we hope you find it helpful. If you have a question about toenail fungus or the laser treatment that is not answered below, please give our friendly staff a call and we will be happy to answer any question you have.
How does the laser work?
The laser is a specially designed, medical device that shines a laser/light beam through your toenail and vaporizes the pathogens embedded in your nail bed and nail plate that cause toenail fungus.
Is the laser treatment painful?
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.
How long does the treatment take?
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.
Does it really work?
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!
How soon will I see improvement?
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.
Is this treatment safe?
In the thousands of patients across the country who 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 has no known side effects.
Can I walk after the treatment?
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.
Is the laser treatment covered by my insurance?
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 prescription medications they have tried in the past, often without success. Please feel free to contact our offices for more information on payment options.
Why haven't I heard about this before?
This is NEW laser technology and has only recently become available to the public. But we are proud to report great success almost across the board. Thousands of patients have been treated all over the country and we have yet to see any severe adverse side effects.
