How does the fungal toenail laser work?

Fungal toenailThe fungal toenail laser is a safe alternative for dealing with fungal nail infections. The highly focused, intense beam of light from the FDA-approved HyperBlue 1530 laser passes through your infected nail without damaging the keratin. This allows it to reach the infected nail bed below. There, its specific light wavelength targets the fungus, destroying the damaged cells while leaving healthy tissue intact and safe. There are no known side effects to this quick procedure and most people feel no pain whatsoever. There’s no recovery time after the laser, either, so you don’t have to worry about taking time off from your regular activities.

For the best, most complete treatment, you’ll need three sessions spread out over a couple months to allow your nails time to heal and to truly eradicate all of the pathogen. Then, within a few months, your new, healthy nail should be visible. Let Podiatry Associates, P.C. help your feet look and feel their best.
