Toenail Fungus

Millions of people struggle every day with toenail fungus. Now there is a solution that is fast becoming the standard of care in the industry. One laser treatment puts you on your way to going barefoot without worry.

The Answer

The laser is a specially designed medical device that shines through your toenail and vaporizes the pathogens embedded in your nail bed and your nail plate that cause your unsightly toenail condition. The laser light beam does not harm the nail or surrounding skin. The treatment is painless so there is no need for anesthesia. You will be able to walk out just as well as you walked in. You can wear shoes and even get a pedicure after treatment.

What is Pinpointe FootLaser?

PinPointe FootLaser was developed to treat patients safely and quickly with no drugs, no anesthesia and no pain: Laser light passes through the toenail without causing damage to the nail or surrounding skin. Following the procedure, the new nail will grow in healthy and clear. Unlike medication-driven treatments for toenail fungus, PinPointe FootLaser presents minimal risk of side effects whereas competing medications can result in a wide variety of side effects, including liver toxicity.
