Laser Nail Fungus Removal
Laser toenail and laser fingernail fungus treatments are the fastest, most effective way of treating toenail fungus without pain or discomfort. Unlike laser treatment for toenail fungus infection, most oral medicines to treat toenail fungus have potential risks and side effects that can eliminate them from usage to treat toenail fungus infection. Topical toenail fungus treatments for toenail fungal infection and fingernail fungal infection also have significant precautions. The lasers used at Paradise Med Spas of Texas are specially tuned to eliminate the fungus without harming any other tissue.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
Our Texas Certified Laser Professionals use a Q-Switched Nd: YAG laser which is one of the most advanced dermatologic lasers currently available. In 3-10 billionths of a second, impulses of high power laser energy pass through the nail to the nail bed and nail growth area with typically no damage to the nail or surrounding skin. At the time of the procedure no visible change is seen until the nail begins to grow out. In a few months, a more normal nail is expected to appear with complete regrowth of the nail taking up to 9-12 months.
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY PERIOD?
No post treatment pain has been reported. You may resume all normal activities immediately. If you have any problems or questions, please contact our office.
IS THE PROCEDURAL PAINFUL?
Most people do not feel any pain. Some patients may experience slight warmth or occasional snapping sensation during the procedure. If you have any pain during the procedure, the laser power can be decreased slightly to eliminate any pain. No anesthesia is needed.
HOW LONG DOES THE PROCEDURE TAKE?
The amount of time varies on the degree of involvement of the nails. Very thick nails are reduced to a more normal thickness so the laser will be more effective. The laser is then applied typically taking only a few minutes. Overall, a visit that includes a consultation and treatment will usually take about 30 minutes.
CAN THE NAIL NOT IMPROVE?
The laser that is used for this procedure is FDA approved and shown to be safe and effective. The nail is expected to improve with just one treatment. Clinical reports to date have been encouraging with most patients noticing significant improvement. As with all medical procedures, a 100% guarantee is not possible. In a randomized 3-12 month study of 100 subjects, significant nail plate clearance was observed in more than 95% of the subject cases with an mean clearance of greater then 56% of the (abnormal or affected) regions. Changing socks and shoes frequently and controlling excessive perspiration are helpful in preventing recurrence for feet and following Post care instructions that will be provided to patients after their treatment.
More Than 95% of Patients See Improvement After Just a Single Treatment!!!
CAN I POLISH MY NAILS OR HAVE A PEDICURE?
You can apply polish to the nail immediately after the laser treatment. However it is important to remove all nail polish prior to your treatment.
IS THE LASER TREATMENT COVERED BY MY HEALTHCARE INSURANCE?
No, the procedure is considered cosmetic, and is not covered by health insurance.
HOW MUCH DOES LASER TREATMENT COST?
The cost varies depending on the number of nails involved and severity of the infection. A consultation is provided to determine if you are a good candidate for laser treatment. Call Paradise Med Spas of Texas to schedule your consultation!
