The Benefits of Nail Laser Treatment

How the Nail Laser Works?

Our Nail Fungus laser emits pulses of energy that produces heat onto the nail. The laser is directly penetrating through the toenail to the nail bed where the fungus is present.

When used properly, nail laser treatment does not emit enough energy to destroy all the infection on the first go. For this reason, we suggest users repeat the treatment often to ensure complete removal of the fungus.

The fungal growth will be inhibited during treatment with some of the fungal microorganisms destroyed, however after the first treatment, some microorganisms can partially survive the treatment, its very unlikely that you will be completely clear or cured after just one session.

With our product we recommend straight after using the nail laser, the user should use our nail fungus cream immediately after treatment.

During Laser treatment for nail fungus most users experience noticeable improvements after a few sessions, with a high cure rate as well. 

Advantages of Laser Treatment for Nail Fungus

There are several types of advantages of applying laser treatment for nail fungus:

  • No side effects or no need to take drugs / medication.
  • No recovery time – can use it daily with no issues.
  • Perfect for home use
  • Safe and painless treatment
  • Only 10-15 minutes required to treat the toenail for fungus on both feet, this is if 10 nails are being treated.
  • Super easy to use.

Signs of Improvement in Nail Health

While some people may experience resolution of the infection with a single treatment, some additional use of the nail laser may be required.

Some infections may require a few sessions or more before the nail laser clears the infected nail – as some may take up to 12 months until the nail grows out to tell whether the treatment has been a success. As mentioned above, straight after using the nail laser, we request users to use the nail fungus cream provided. 

Some signs of improvements may include:

  • Resolution of flaky debris on the nail or under
  • Disappearance of white, yellow or brown discoloration of the affected area
  • Normal texture and shape of new nail growth with no more thickness, strange nail shapes or bumps.

Nail Fungus Cream and does it help?

Our nail fungus cream will be provided alongside our nail laser device. The cream is an Oleogel for Onychomycosis and Nail Fungi. It helps to eliminate and to prevent the proliferation of fungal nail infections and is widely used alongside our Nail Laser Treatment as a bonus.

How to use it? – Dilute through the nail with a small file. Spread the product over the affected nail and the entire affected toe once a day after using the nail laser treatment. You must massage the nail and toe for a better absorption.

How effective is laser treatment for Nail Fungus?

The nail fungus laser will take a few treatments (likely 4) before it starts truly showing results - we usually recommend to combine the treatment with the nail fungus cream, as you will likely achieve much faster results. The nail fungus cream comes alongside the nail laser. 

The nail fungus treatment is super easy, all you need to do is place the nail laser on the infected nail and leave for 7 minutes. The laser will automatically shut down once it's completed the treatment, so no complex procedures no cleaning up afterwards and no pain.
