Fungal Nail Infection
What is Fungal nail disease?
The most recent clinical data shows that laser treatment is over 80% effective to achieve clear nails, pain-free and without side effects.
Is the procedure painful?
You will feel a warm sensation during the procedure which lasts one or two minutes per toenail. This is from a laser beam that will be slowly directed across the nail bed. The laser beam will generate heat beneath the nail and within the underlying fungal colony.
How soon will I have clear nails?
You will not see a result immediately, but rather over a period of months as the nail resumes healthy growth. Nails grow slowly, so you may not see significant improvement for several months, but you should see a gradual growth of clear nail.
Will I need more than one treatment?
Additional treatments may be recommended depending on severity of the fungal infection. Your podiatrist will talk with you about the possibility of having additional treatments and will also advise you on the proper care of your nails to minimise the risk of recurrence.

Clinical Study results?
The investigator concluded that the Laser Therapy was safe, well tolerated and very effective in promoting the growth of clear nails in patients with onychomycosis. With significant improvement two months after initial treatment.
