The toenail fungus laser treatment uses state-of-the-art technology to target and kill ugly toenail fungus, with Aerolase Neo LightPod. Patients suffering from toenail fungus usually have a nail infection in the nail bed which causes mild to severe discoloration and thickening of the nail. The laser works by vaporizing the fungal DNA. The gentle laser light beam has no effect on healthy tissue and will treat only the infected area of the toenail. No drugs or topical ointments are used in the laser toenail fungus removal treatment, eliminating the total-body side effects of traditional oral medications. The laser toenail fungus removal procedure requires a small number of safe, quick treatments with little or no discomfort. The toenail laser fungus treatment is performed as an outpatient service with no anesthesia. After laser treatment, the toenail fungus can no longer grow and cause infection in the nail bed. The toenail fungus laser treatment is completed in a single 15-30 minute session, does not damage healthy nail or skin and there is minimal recovery time. The laser procedure begins working instantly, with positive results appearing as the toenail begins to grow out. There is no downtime and after the laser treatment patients immediately put on (clean) socks and shoes, walk right out the door and return to their daily activity. The treatment offers a new alternative to oral medications, which carry a risk of liver damage, and local medications like nail lacquer, which have poor efficacy.
Clinical studies to date reveal that over 95% of treated patients with this laser are satisfied with a single session. We do recommend getting all 10 toenails treated. On certain social marketing promotions we offer to treat Five toenails. PLEASE NOTE: If you choose the FIVE toe promotion, ALL OF THE TOENAILS MUST BE ON THE SAME FOOT! The reason why is the fungus is like any living organism, it eats and reproduces. The food it consumes is the tissue of your toenail. The fungus is actively sending spores through the immediate area and will eventually affect the other toes.
Laser toenail fungus treatment is not a cure. A fungal infection is fungus living in cracks and pores of your toenail. If a lifestyle change is not made, fungus will return to the nails. Therefore laser toenail fungal treatment is part of an overall protocol which will be provided at your treatment.
Generally there are no health or age restrictions with laser toenail fungus treatments. In most clinical studies there were no bad reactions, contraindications or side effects involving our treatments. If you are pregnant or lactating, have active cancer or herpes or are taking certain medications, you will need to contact your treating physician for a letter of approval for the procedure.
Medication that is used for fungal infection carries the possibility of kidney failure and liver damage.
The average person’s toenails will regrow every 6 to 9 months. Most people will see healthy new growth within 3 months. Your treatment professional will give you a follow up protocol. In some cases re-treatment is required in a few months.
