Fungal Laser Nail System

A fungal laser nail system is a versatile laser system developed to offer a rapid and efficient solution for various cosmetic conditions, including onychomycosis (toenail fungus), warts, and scars. This advanced system is designed to provide customized treatments that address each patient's specific concerns. It incorporates a real-time temperature sensor to provide feedback, ensuring that the precise amount of laser energy is administered during the treatment. This technology helps enhance the safety and effectiveness of the procedure.

A New Approach to Addressing Toenail Fungus (Onychomycosis)

Toenail fungus, medically known as onychomycosis, affects approximately 30 million Americans, causing both physical and cosmetic issues for those who suffer from it. This condition can lead to nail discoloration and deformity, and in some cases, it may cause pain or discomfort while walking. Beyond the physical symptoms, toenail fungus can also carry a social stigma, preventing those affected from enjoying everyday activities like wearing open-toed shoes or going barefoot in front of others. While there has been progress in understanding the causes of this condition, treatment options have been limited to oral medications with potential side effects, as well as prescription topicals and home remedies with unproven effectiveness.

Laser therapy offers a novel approach to addressing toenail fungus, prioritizing patient safety and comfort. The laser system delivers laser energy to the toenail plate and the surrounding tissue. The gradual heating effect of the laser light targets the fungus, promoting the growth of healthy and clear nails. This procedure requires no anesthetics and carries no significant risk of adverse side effects. Typically, the treatment takes 10-20 minutes, and patients can resume their regular activities immediately after the procedure.



Compare vs Conventional Toenail Fungus Treatments

Oral Drugs

  • Generally effective in treating nail fungus
  • Drug must be taken over long period of time (6-8 weeks)
  • Associated with a number of adverse side effects, such as gastrointestinal disorders, skin disorders, headaches and abnormal liver function
  • Not recommended for some patients who have poor health or diabetes

Prescription Topicals

  • Effectiveness is highly variable due to the fact that the drug does not sufficiently penetrate the nail plate to reach the underlying infection
  • Drug must be frequently applied to nails, often daily, over a long period of time

Fungal Laser Treatment

  • Effective in clearing nails of both mild and severe forms of fungus
  • New nail grows out with no signs of infection
  • No significant side effects
  • As with oral drugs and prescription topicals, final results are achieved when the nail grows out, which can take a few months
