Results of Laser toenail fungus treatment

The doctors at Laser Toeail Fungus Treatment NYC have been using the newest Cutera laser since it was first FDA approved.

We have seen the evolution of laser for nail fungus and are happy to announce that we are now achieving approximately 70% success rate.

The Beginning of laser nail fungus treatment:

In the beginning we were less than satisfied with the results of laser treatments for nail fungus. Less than fifty percent of patients got better. The initial lasers were price controlled. It cost twelve hundred dollars for one treatment and the laser manufacturers controlled the pricing. We found this unacceptable and discouraged our patients from trying it unless they were willing to risk the money for not great results. Some of our patients chose to try this with full knowledge that they have less than favorable chance of good results.

Evolution of the lasers produce better results at lower cost:

The biggest change was the availability of more powerful lasers. The Cutera has an output of 80 watts compared to the PinPointe 4 watts. 20 times stronger output means more heat delivered to a larger area and deeper inside the nail.

We found out through our early experience that combining the laser treatment with aggressively grinding nails.

We also found that repeating the laser treatment at least three times led to much better results and increased success rate. By repeating the laser three or more times, using twice daily topical medication and grinding the nails we have achieved about a 70% success rate.

We find that oral medications achieve about 90% success. We give all of our patients the option of taking oral medication but the laser has no risk of liver damage like oral medications.

In summary: we offer effective laser treatment for nail fungus at a cost of $900 for 3 treatments and additional treatments at just $250 each.

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.
