Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if I have a nail fungus? What causes it? Scheduling an initial appointment with one of our Podiatrists is the first step that you can take to determine if the problem you are having is caused by a nail fungus. Often, patients with fungal nails may have pain, thick, yellow and unsightly nails. Toenail infections can be caused by heavy foot perspiration, poor shoe/sock ventilation or walking barefoot in damp areas such as a gym or locker room. How does the laser treatment work? The laser kills the fungus infection in the nail bed allowing the new nail to grow out unaffected. Typical treatment is under 20 minutes. Does it hurt? No, you should have no pain or discomfort during the treatment. However, some people feel a warm tingling sensation. How soon will I see improvement? On average, a toenail will replace itself every 9-12 months. Healthy new growth will be visible within the first 2 months as your nails continue to grow following the laser treatment. You can resume normal activities immediately. There are no bandages or pain relief required.
