Laser Treatment for Nail Fungus

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.
