Laser Nail Therapy

Laser Nail Therapy

Laser Nail Therapy is used to treat Onychomycosis, a fungal infection of the toe/s. Fungal nails affect 2%-14% of the adult population.


How does Laser nail treatment work?

Fungal nails can be treated using topical/paint on type medications, oral drugs or laser treatment.

Laser treatment is a relatively new treatment that heats the nail bed enough to kill the fungal nail. 

The laser beam will generate heat beneath the fungal nails and underlying colony in the nail bed, which results in fungus removal.

You will feel a warm sensation during the laser treatments, and the operator will adjust accordingly.

The number of laser treatments required depends on the severity of the fungal nail, but if recommended will be a minimum of 4.

Is laser treatment for nail fungus effective?

The laser therapy is well tolerated and very effective in promoting the growth of clear nail in patients with toenail fungus.

Research shows that laser treatment for toenail fungus is 70-85% effective after a single treatment.

Fungus removal will not occur immediately but rather after a period of months, as the nail resumes healthy growth. Preventative measures will be advised to ensure toenail fungus does not reoccur.

Is there any risks?

There has been no incidences or burns or overtreatment in clinical studies of the use of laser for fungal nails. Your Podiatrist will assess you individually for toenail fungus, and take precautions in patients with Diabetes, Neuropathy or a decrease in sensation of the toes.
