Is the Procedure done in the Office?

Yes.  We have a special room set up to perform the nail laser treatments.  The actual laser treatments last 10-15 minutes, but be sure to allow yourself 30 minutes for the entire office visit.  Your nails may need to be thinned prior to your laser treatment in order to achieve the best results.

How Many Treatments will I Need?

Depending on the severity of your condition, 2 treatments are usually recommended.  The second treatment is done 3-4 months after the initial treatment.

Does the Treatment Hurt?

The nail laser treatments are usually quite comfortable.  You may experience a gentle warming or tingling as the laser works to clear your nail.

How Soon Will I See Improvement?

On average, a toenail will replace itself every 9-12 months. Healthy new growth will be visible within the first 2 months as your nails continue to grow following the laser treatment. We highly recommend that a topical anti-fungal agent such as Formula 3 be used in conjunction to reduce the risk of cross contamination.  It is also critical to disinfect your shoes with our in-office Klenz unit and to use Biotext spray regularly at home.

What are the Side Effects of Nail Laser?

That is the great news!  There are no side effects on your body as the light beam of the laser is focused on the affected area only.  That makes this treatment a very safe alternative to oral prescription medication and there is no interruption in your regular activities.

Am I a Candidate for Laser Nail Treatment?
