Laser therapy is the latest development in treatment for fungal nails (onychomycosis). It’s a safe, effective and easy alternative to topical ointments and/or medications. For this reason, laser therapy is gaining popularity and becoming the treatment of choice for many people with fungal nails.
Published studies and our experience show a positive result in 60-80% of cases. Second treatments are usually recommended 2-3 weeks after your initial treatment and further treatments may be indicated for severely affected nails and persistent fungal strains. Your podiatrist or specialist will advise you on the proper care of your nails to minimise the risk of recurrence.
Results are not immediate, but rather as the nail grows you will notice new, healthy growth from the mail base (epynichium). Nails grow slowly so a complete result is observed months following the procedure. The ultimate result may be seen as much as 10-15 months after the procedure.
