Once a fungal infection has been determined, treatment can begin. However, it is important to note that treatments vary depending on the nature and severity of the infection.
We offer laser treatment for patients diagnosed with fungal nail infections. Laser therapy is a fast, painless, and effective treatment method with no recovery period of side effects.
The laser energy penetrates through the nail and soft tissue heating up the fungal cells, destroying them, and eliminating the infection. The heat energy also sterilizes the area to prevent new fungal growth.
The number of treatment sessions necessary will be determined during your consultation. The average treatment plan consists of 3-6 sessions but will depend on the severity of infection and patient’s health.
As your nail grows out, the damage will slowly disappear. It is important to note it can take 6 to 12 months for the nail to grow out completely. We will monitor your nail’s growth to ensure treatment is successful.
