Onychomycosis, or toenail fungus, can be a difficult disease to treat. Laser therapy is the most definitive way to treat onychomycosis today.
Laser therapy is a safe and effective treatment for toenail fungus. Unlike other therapies for onychomycosis, there are no side effects and no down time, and it has been cleared by the FDA. Patients require no drugs or anesthesia, and have no pain during or after the procedure.
Laser therapy is able to target the fungus that lives in and under the nail without causing damage to the nail and surrounding skin. The laser uses a single wavelength of light to remove the fungus specifically. Laser therapy is an in-office procedure that is pain-free, quick, and highly effective. Most patients see clear, beautiful, healthy nails in less than six months.
