Not only are fungal nails embarrassing, they are the leading reason behind costly visits to the podiatrist and dermatologist. Laser nail fungus treatment procedures are safe and work effectively without causing any signs of discomfort, in comparison to painful nail removal surgery and leading prescription topical treatments for nail fungus.
How soon should I experience results?
On average, any nail replaces itself every 6 to 9 months through natural growth. Healthy new growth may be visible within few months as the new nail replaces the old. However, follow up treatment with an anti-fungal cream with L-arginine has shown an increase in the speed of healthy nail replacement. Your medical technician may make recommendations for a post laser treatment nail cream.
Is the procedure painful? Most people do not feel any pain. Some patients may experience warmth and occasional snapping sensation during the procedure. If you have any pain during the procedure, the laser power may be decreased slightly to reduce any pain. No anesthesia is needed.
What are the possible side effects of Laser Nail Fungus Treatment? The majority of clients experience zero side effects other than a temporary feeling of warmth during treatment and a mild warming sensation after treatment.
How many treatments is needed?
The number of treatments varies on the degree of involvement of the nails. It may need 1 to 6 treatments done every 3-4 weeks.
