Am I candidate for laser for nail fungus?

The very first step in the procedure is to figure out if the patient is a good candidate for laser toenail fungus treatment.

After a consultation has been arranged, the patient will come to the office and we will evaluate the condition of the toenails.

Am I a candidate for nail fungus laser p01If there is any question as to whether you have fungal nails or not, we will do a painless biopsy. The nail clipping gets sent to our lab to see if there is fungus in the nail.

Am I a candidate for nail fungus laser p02If the biopsy is negative we will tell you that the laser will not work. If we decide that laser treatment is not the best option for your unique situation, we will let you know. We do not perform lasers on people that can’t be cured by the treatment, or would have more success being treated in a different manner. If laser treatment is not the best course of action, we will help you figure out the best way to treat your nail condition. It’s important to make sure the condition really is fungus before treating with a laser or the treatments won’t be successful.

If we determine that the problem is fungus, laser treatment can start immediately.  If a biopsy is needed, the results take about one week to get back to our office and treatment will begin right after that.

There are actually several problems that resemble fungus, but are in fact not fungus at all. Treating a problem that isn’t fungus with a laser is a waste of time and money; it’s something ethical doctors avoid. Our goal is to help you with your nail condition as quickly and effectively as possible, even if it means we do not perform the laser.

We use the most advanced Laser for nail fungus:

The Cutera Genesis Laser is 80 Watts. This is 20 times more powerful than the first generation of FDA approved lasers for nail fungus. The Cutera Genesis 1064nm laser is a safe and effective option for treatment of nail fungus.

The heat generated by the laser penetrates deep inside the nail where the fungus resides. It kills the fungus that causes nail disease (Dermatophytes). It is relatively painless. Most patients report feeling some heat and occasional discomfort. The heat does not damage the surrounding skin.

The laser procedure is done in our office and takes 20-40 minutes depending on how many nails are effected.

No anesthesia or pain killers are necessary and patients may return to normal activity and work immediately after the procedure with zero down-time.
