How does the laser work?

The PinPointe FootLaser kills the fungus that lives in and under the toenail. The laser light passes through the toenail without causing damage to the nail or the surrounding skin. At the time of the procedure, the toenail will not become instantly clear, it takes time to grow out.

Is the procedure painful?

Most people feel no pain. Some people feel a warming sensation and very few feel a pinprick.

How long does the procedure take?

The Foot Laser procedure takes less than 30 minutes.

Will the fungus come back?

The fungus is killed after one treatment and typically the doctor recommends care techniques to reduce recurrence of the infection. There is a chance of reinfection because the fungus is present everywhere in the environment.

A specially designed laser beams through the toenail and safely kills the organisms embedded in the nail bed that cause Onychomycosis – more commonly known as toenail fungus.
The procedure requires one or a small number of safe, quick treatments with little or no discomfort and is performed as an outpatient service with no anesthesia. The gentle laser light beam has no effect on healthy tissue and treats only the infected area of the toe. No drugs or topical ointments are used, eliminating the total-body side effects of traditional oral medications.

Clinical studies show that the laser kills toenail fungus and promotes clear nail growth with a single treatment in better than 80% of cases. The laser treatment is safe, effective, and most patients improve usually after their first treatment.
