Laser treatments for nail fungus are proven to be as effective as topical or oral treatments, and can be used without side effects. Using the laser power of our GentleYAG® system, we can safely and effectively treat fungus under fingernails and toenails. It is especially good for treating resistant fungus species, such as saprophytes.
How the GentleYAG Laser Destroys Nail Fungus
Our procedure uses safe, quick bursts of laser energy to heat the infected tissue and directly target the pathogens that cause fungus to grow underneath the nail. The treatment has been proven effective in more than 85% of patients surveyed. Patients may experience some discomfort during the laser treatment, which usually resolves shortly after the procedure. We can work with you to manage any discomfort you feel.
Several treatments four to six weeks apart are recommended. Your new nail will begin to form within three to six months following your treatment sessions, and a healthy, clear toenail should be completely grown in within a year; fingernails are even faster.
