Candela GentleMax Pro: Laser Toenail Fungus Treatment F.A.Q
How soon should I experience results?
On average, any toenail 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 podiatrist may make recommendations for a post laser treatment toenail cream.
Is the procedure painful?
Most people do not feel any pain. Some patients may experience slight 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 Toenail 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.

However, possible side effects may include a feeling of warmth and/or slight pain during treatment, redness of the treated skin around the nail lasting 24 – 72 hours, slight swelling of the treated skin around the nail lasting 24 – 72 hours, discolouration or burn marks may occur on the nail. In very rare cases, blistering of the treated skin around the nail and scarring of the treated skin around the nail may occur.
How long does it take?
The amount of time varies on the degree of involvement of the nails. Very thick nails are mechanically reduced to a more normal thickness with specialized equipment. The laser is then applied typically taking only a few minutes.
How does Fungus Nail laser treatment work?
Fungus nail treatment is a revolutionary means to cure fungal nail infections, in a patient-friendly, quick and effective way, utilizing GentleYAG laser light. The laser has no effect on healthy tissue and healthy nail would be visible within weeks. The Laser light heats evenly throughout the depth of the affected nail and skin tissue, effectively weakening and killing the parasitic fungi which have infected the nail. Deep, pulse-profile heating of the nail bed stimulates the killing of parasitic fungus. The natural growth and immune processes of the body are then able to restore the nail to its pristine state. Compared to traditional methods, the effects of laser light spread evenly throughout the tissue and are not subject to either the limits of chemical diffusion, as are topical or the induction of hepatoxic side effects, as is the case with oral medications.
