A. The laser provides a comfortable safe controlled treatment beyond most lasers by having little to NO THERMAL effect (heat) on the skin, nail, and nail bed. The laser provides one of the safest most effective treatments in the industry. The laser has a long track record of safety including 18 FDA clearances since 2003.
Q. Will the Treatment Hurt?
A. NO. You should have no pain or discomfort during the treatment. However, some people feel a warm tingling sensation. The laser has the ability to adjust to all clinical situations and produces little to NO THERMAL effects (heat).
Q. How Long Does the Treatment Take?
A. The treatment takes just under ten minutes.
Q. Will this Treatment be Covered by Insurance?
Laser treatment of nail and skin conditions is considered an aesthetic, cosmetic procedure by all insurance companies with coverage denied.
Q. How Soon Will I See Improvement?
A. On average, a toenail will replace itself every 9-12 months. Healthy new growth will be visible after 4-6 months as your nails continue to grow following the laser treatment.
Q. Does It Really Work?
A. YES. Lasers for ugly unsightly toenail infections have a multiple year track record that is very impressive. Patients are pleased, happy and no longer embarrassed by their ugly unsightly toenail infections. Patients have stated they are now wearing open toe shoes and sandals, which they have not worn for many years because of their ugly unsightly toes.
Q. Will I need local anesthetic?
A. NO. Your toenails will be cleaned and filed prior to the laser treatment. As each toe is treated with the painless laser the patient might at most feel a mild, warming sensation, most people feel absolutely nothing.
Q. Can I immediately return to normal activities?
A. YES! You may return to your normal daily routine immediately after your toenail treatment. Go enjoy the outdoors, play sports, exercise or walk on the beach. It is time you can finally relax and not be self-conscious.
