A highly effective, non-surgical, laser treatment that can kill pesky and unsightly nail fungus infections. Fungal laser treatments destroy the fungal cells right at the source allowing the nail tissue to regenerate and resume healthy growth. Fungal infections can spread very easily and their spores can withstand very aggressive treatments which is why many fungal products are not very successful and why laser treatment is a great solution.
We use IPL (Intense Pulse Light) to treat and kill fungal nail conditions. By destroying the fungal cells, the nail tissue can regenerate allowing the nail to heal, reattach and begin to grow out naturally. IPL has no negative effect on the skin or the healthy nails and does not require anesthesia. It is non-surgical and there is no downtime or effect on your activity following the treatment. IPL treatment of fungus takes much less time than the classic treatments.
How long does it take?
Treatment duration can vary between 5 – 20 minutes.
While a single treatment may be enough, a series of 3-4 treatments, spaced 4 – 6 weeks apart, is recommended to achieve optimal results. As the nails resume healthy growth, they will grow in clear. You will start to see results in 2 – 3 months. Nails grow slowly – the big toenail can take up to a year to grow from bottom to top. While you may not see a significant improvement for several months, you should see a gradual growth of clear nail and achieve complete clearance in about a year. You can re-apply nail polish after treatment to disguise nail fungus until the healthy, clear nail grows in.
To prepare for your treatment:
- Remove all nail polish
- Cut nails short
- Buy anti-fungal spray and treat all of your shoes
- Wash bathmats and clean all tubs and showers
- Clean any tools used on nails
- Bring new socks with treated shoes or new flip flops to your appointment
