Laser Nail Fungus Treatment
What is this treatment?
Nail fungus is a common condition that begins as a white or yellow spot under the tip of your fingernail or toenail. As the fungal infection goes deeper, nail fungus may cause your nail to discolor, thicken and crumble at the edge. It can affect several nails.
At Crystal Care Clinic, we have a solution that will treat this difficult condition in a highly effective and safe way. Our Laser technology is capable of penetrating through the nail and into the nail matrix, heating the tissue in the nail bed to maximize coagulation of soft tissue contaminated with fungus. The presence of pigment and water in such soft tissue structures, as well as hemoglobin in the vasculature supporting the nail bed, collectively represent the common chromophores that absorb 1064nm laser energy as part of the process of coagulating and destroying the targeted tissue structures. The treatment of nails with our LightPod laser is fast and convenient – it takes approximately 5 to 15 seconds to cover a single nail with laser pulses.
- Deep heating power
- Quick 10 minute procedure
- Highly effective even for the most problematic nails
