Treating Nail Fungus with Laser Treatment

Often, nail fungus begins as a small spot that is white or yellow in color, typically under the tip of the fingernail or toenail. Unfortunately, the fungus can spread very quickly and can cause the nail to become very thick and start to fall apart around the edges. Nail fungus can be embarrassing but it can also be painful and in some cases is difficult to treat. Laser treatments are a modern day solution that helps many people get rid of nail fungus for good.

What is so good about Laser Treatments compared to other treatments?

Those individuals that struggle with nail fungus are aware that most treatments just don’t work. BestToeNailFungusLaserTreatmentNYC1.jpgThe treatments available on the market today are virtually endless. However, the best long term solution and the easiest treatment to go through is treatment with a laser. Each session of a laser nail fungus treatment only lasts around 20-30 minutes, depending on the technician, doctor and the severity of the nail fungus. Most cases of nail fungus only take three to five visits to treat properly. The great thing is that once the treatment is finished, you can go about your life as normal. Although we often give a topical treatment, you don’t have to worry about obsessing over taking a pill and constantly applying topical medication to try to get rid of the fungus. Laser treatments are also relatively painless and there is no recovery time. Lasers are able to treat the fungus underneath the nail without causing any damage to the nail or the delicate tissue surrounding it.

How to find a Doctor experienced in the Laser Treatment of Nail fungus

If you decide you want to try laser treatment for your nail fungus, take the time to find a reliable doctor that has experience with this type of treatment. I have been an active user of laser treatment since it was first FDA approved, my newest laser (Cutera) is extremely effective, quick, and affordable.

The drawback to laser treatment for nail fungus is that it is not currently covered by any insurance. This means it is a completely out of pocket expense for patients, making many people hesitant to try it. Treatment usually takes at least three to five separate laser appointments and sometimes requires a topical treatment as part of a combination treatment to get rid of the problem.

Individuals that have not had success in treating their nail fungus in the past may not be anxious to try another treatment and fail, however, laser treatment is successful for many people, including those who did not have success with other treatments such as ointments and pills. The newest laser has increased success rates dramatically and I have had many happy patients. I estimate the success rate to be 70% or more.  call a docAfter just a few treatments your nail should be looking better again as it grows without fungus.

There is no need to hide your fingernails or toenails in shame, laser treatment could be the answer for you. Give us a call or drop us an e-mail today to schedule a consultation or have your questions answered.

How much does Laser Treatment Cost?

How much does Laser Treatment Cost?

Laser for nail fungus is not covered by any medical insurance plan. Your initial consultation and biopsy when needed are usually covered.

2013 09 30 Best priced laser for nail fungus NYC p01We charge $900 for the laser. If there is any question whether the nails have fungus or not, we will do a biopsy at your initial visit and you will have to come back for the laser if the biopsy is positive.

If we do the biopsy we will charge you insurance if you have it and we take it, or charge you $200 for the consult. The laboratory also takes insurance and if you do not have insurance they will charge you as well.

If it turns out that you do not have nail fungus, we will not do the laser and the $200 charge is your only responsibly to us. The lab will not return their fee.

If you do have fungus and we proceed with laser treatment, simply deduct the $200 consult charge from the $900 being charged for the procedure.

If you have a flex spending account or a medical savings account, those funds can be usually be used to pay for the services we provide.

Our laser treatment costs $900, which includes three treatments, or three single visits using the laser.

Most people will see improvement after three visits. Many places charge $900 per visit, so some of our clients look at our pricing as paying for one and getting two free! We do require the $900 payment to be completed prior to our services on the first visit for laser. Cash or cards are acceptable forms of payment.

If after three treatments the doctors think that you will benefit from additional laser treatments the cost will be $250 per laser after the initial three. Often, this is the case where most of the nail has grown out but not all of it. We are ethical doctors and if we feel that additional lasers will not benefit you, we will tell you not to spend the additional money. To date, the most laser procedures we have done is 10. This was at a cost of $900 for the initial three lasers and $1,750 for the next seven lasers for a total of $2,650. Considering many doctors in NYC charge $1,800 for one treatment, I’d say we are the most fairly priced laser for nail fungus in NYC. BTW: after 10 lasers, he was cured!

Am I candidate for laser for nail fungus?

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

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.

My results with Cutera Laser for Toenail Fungus 2013

Results of my Cutera patients treated for nail fungus.

I have been completing treatment for toenail fungus with a laser since the technology was first available on the market…

How it Started: Pin Pointe Laser (a false start)

Pin Pointe with Line Through It Cutera is BetterWhen the technology first came out I was not very impressed with the results of the laser procedure. Only about half of my patients saw results after a treatment and the cost was high, $1200 per treatment! This was something I discussed with each patient prior to the service being completed and even with the 50% success rate; several people were willing to try the procedure.

The newest Cutera Laser: Lower price, More favorable outcome!

Cutera is Better than pin pointe. jpgWhen the Cutera Genesis laser came out, the laser nail fungus treatment was revolutionized. The Cutera is 80 watts strong compared to the original PinPointe’s 4 watts. This means the results are better and the treatment much faster. I also discovered that utilizing topical treatments with laser procedures is the best and most effective means of treating nail fungus. It has also come to my attention that most people need three treatments to get results they are happy with. The new laser, combination treatment, and increase from one treatment to three has increased success rates to about 70%, which is just below antifungal medicines such as Lamisil. However, lasers do not come with the same side effects. In fact, lasers are much safer and easier. Today I can do a series of three treatments for just $900.
