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. If you’re dealing with toenail fungus in Artesia and are embarrassed about showing your feet because of it, our Pinpointe FootLaser treatment can help you go barefoot again without worry.
What Is the Pinpointe FootLaser Treatment?
This laser is a specially designed FDA-approved medical device that shines through your toenail and vaporizes the pathogens embedded in your nail bed and your nail plate that are causing your toenail condition. Following the procedure, the new nail will grow in healthy and clear.
PinPointe FootLaser was developed to treat patients safely and quickly with no drugs, no anesthesia, and no pain. The laser light beam does not harm the nail or surrounding skin. After the treatment, you will be able to walk out just as easily as you walked in. You can wear shoes and even get a pedicure after treatment, and no recovery or downtime will be necessary.
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.
Ideal Candidates for Toenail Fungus Treatment
Our experts will evaluate whether you are a good candidate for this laser procedure during a consultation. If we determine that your nail condition is fungal and that the treatment is the best course of action for resolving it, the treatment process can begin.
How Long Does the Treatment Take?
On average, it takes 10 minutes or so to treat a big toe with PinPointe FootLaser toenail fungus treatment. Naturally, if you have more than one toe infected, it may take a little longer. The vast majority of our patients require only one treatment.
Is the Laser Treatment Painful?
Because the laser light beam has no effect on healthy tissue, it is not a painful treatment in any way. There is no discomfort associated with the treatment during or after.
Does It Really Work?
Clinical studies performed in Sacramento, California, reveal that the laser is 88% effective. Significant improvement occurred in most patients. In most cases, nail fungus is completely cured.
How Soon Will I See Improvement?
On the average, a toenail will replace itself every 6-9 months. Healthy new growth will be visible within the first 3 months.
Toenail Fungus Treatment Cost
The price of laser toenail fungus treatment from our specialists will depend on how severe the fungal infection is and how many sessions are required to treat it. The cost of this treatment is generally not covered by health insurance providers, since it is considered cosmetic.
