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.
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.
