Laser treatment for nail fungus (onychomycosis) is a safe alternative to oral medications or surgical treatment. This painless procedure is performed in the office with no need for local anesthesia. Patients may experience a warm sensation as the laser energy penetrates into the nail bed. Not all patients with nail fungus are good candidates and consultation beforehand is essential to a good outcome. Most patients require 3-6 treatments at one month intervals. Topical medications may be utilized in conjunction with laser therapy.
