The Laser Genesis procedure is a clinically proven safe and effective way to clear the toenail without drug therapy. The laser light works by killing the fungus as it penetrates deep through the nail and into the surrounding area.
There is virtually no pain during the office procedure, only a warm sensation from the laser light. There are no needles, incisions and no damage to the treated skin. There is also no downtime from regular activities or exercise after the treatment and one can put their regular shoes back on immediately after the treatment.
Only toenails infected with fungus are treated with the laser. The treatments range from 15-35 minutes depending on the number of toenails requiring treatment and if reducing the thickness of the nails is needed before the treatment can begin. There is no downtime from regular activities or exercise after the treatment and one can put their regular shoes back on immediately after the treatment.
Most only need two twenty-minute treatments to start seeing clear nail growth but those with severe fungal infections often need a second treatment. Clinical trials have shown lasers to be 88% effective against nail fungus. A 100% guarantee is not possible, as with all medical procedures. Reinfection can occur since fungus is present in our environment.
Laser nail fungus treatment is not covered by insurance companies, however treatments are generally affordable and preferable for those seeking an alternative to prescription medication and their potential liver risks.
