Laser For Nail Fungus (Onychomycosis)

What is Laser For Nail Fungus (Onychomycosis)?

Laser for nail fungusNail fungus, also called onychomycosis, is a common fungal infection that affects the toenails or fingernails. Onychomycosis can affect one or several nails and is caused by a group of fungi called dermatophytes, although other types of fungi, such as yeasts and molds, may also be responsible. The infection usually starts as a small white or yellow spot under the nail and gradually spreads deeper into the nail, causing it to become discolored, thickened, and brittle. The affected nails may also become distorted in shape and emit a foul odor. If left untreated, onychomycosis can cause pain and discomfort, and in severe cases, may lead to permanent nail damage. At Radiance, Laser Genesis is the ultimate solution for nail fungus. This remarkable laser procedure can efficiently eradicate the fungal infection while simultaneously stimulating natural and healthy nail growth. The laser targets the fungus directly while the surrounding nail and skin is left undamaged. Laser for nail fungus is a gentle and painless procedure that can be done in less than 30 minutes.

Who is Laser For Nail Fungus (Onychomycosis) for?

Patients who are struggling with nail odor, or pain, or are dissatisfied with the appearance of their nails may find relief through laser treatment for nail fungus. Onychomycosis is not as uncommon as most would think, and is even more common in toenails than in fingernails, as toenails are more likely to be exposed to warm and moist environments, such as sweaty socks and shoes, that promote fungal growth. It can also occur in people with weakened immune systems, poor circulation, diabetes, or who have had previous nail injuries. Symptoms of nail fungus include nails that are thickened, discolored, brittle, misshapen, separated from the nail bed, or odor. If you have ever had symptoms related to nail fungus, laser treatment may be a viable solution for you. If you wear winter boots, are an athlete, like to spend time outdoors, or want to wear your sandals with confidence then laser treatment at Radiance Medical Aesthetics may be a viable solution for you.

Why Laser For Nail Fungus (Onychomycosis)?

At Radiance, we are dedicated to providing unique solutions for patients who want to overcome both aesthetic and medical conditions. Although nail fungus can be treated with anti-fungal cream or oral anti-fungal medications, they are not always effective and the nail fungus can come back. Laser for nail fungus offers an alternative to traditional creams and medications for onychomycosis. One of the main advantages of laser treatment for nail fungus (onychomycosis) is that it is a non-invasive procedure that does not require anesthesia or the use of oral anti-fungal medications, which can have side effects.

Another benefit of laser treatment for nail fungus is that there is no downtime required afterward and may resume your normal daily activities. Overall, laser treatment for onychomycosis may be a good option for patients who are unable or unwilling to take oral anti-fungal medications, or who have not responded well to other treatment options. Laser for nail fungus can be used in combination with anti-fungal creams for increased benefits.

Treatment Areas & Considerations

The infected nail(s) will need to grow out in order for visual effects to be apparent.

6 treatments are recommended for optimal results, the first 3 treatments spaced  2 – 3 weeks apart, and the last 3 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart. The number of treatments may vary based on the severity of the onychomycosis. 

Nail growth is very slow and may take anywhere from 6 -12 months for the nails to completely clear.

Nail polish and/or fake nails can be worn between treatments but will need to be completely removed before your treatment appointments.
