What is Laser Onychomycosis Treatment?

Laser Onychomycosis treatment is a revolutionary method for treating onychomycosis in a patient-friendly, quick and effective way with Nd:YAG laser light. Laser light heats evenly throughout the depth of effected nail and skin tissue, effectively weakening and killing parasitic fungi which have infected the patient’s nail.

How does ClearSteps work?

Deep, pulse-profile heating of the nail bed stimulates the killing of parasitic fungus. The natural growth and immune processes of the body are then able to restore the nail to its pristine state. Compared to traditional methods the effects of laser light spread evenly throughout the tissue and are not subject to either the limits of chemical diffusion, as are topicals, or the induction of hepatoxic side effects, as is the case with oral medications.

The procedure can be performed in three simple steps:

Step 1:The nail is filed down. During onychomycosis the nail will become deformed and overgrown, it may also thicken. Filing down the nail allows laser light to fully penetrate into the treatment site.

Step 2: TheNd:YAG laser pulses in a circular pattern covering the entire nail. Slightly overlap the beam so that the nail is fully covered. You should feel a slight heating sensation throughout the nail.

Step 3: Target Nd:YAG laser pulses around the perimeter of the nail bed and around the finger or toe. Often parasitic fungus has worked its way beyond the nail bed and needs to be eliminated in all the tissue surrounding the nail to prevent recurrence.

How Many Sessions Are Needed?

The treatment is usually performed four times at one week intervals. All of the nails should be treated, during every treatment, just in case. Laser light can also effectively treat fungus which has infected skin tissue.

Laser onychomycosis treatment is the most effective and least invasive treatment of fungal nail infection. The treatment is extremely fast and easy to perform and has an unsurpassed treatment success rate compared to traditional methods. An important advantage of the laser treatment method is that no oral medications or chemicals are used. Therefore, there are no dangerous side effects as there are with conventional treatments. NdYag laser is the most patient-friendly and non-invasive treatment of onychomycosis.
