Frequently Asked Questions...

IS THE LASER TREATMENT PAINFUL?

There is no need for anesthesia or painkillers. Some patients may experience slight warmth or an occasional snapping sensation during the procedure. The laser light passes through the toenail without damaging the surrounding skin.

DOES THE LASER TREATMENT WORK?

Studies show that that FDA approved Q-Clear fungal laser treatments clear the nail of fungus as well or better than oral medications that require blood tests and have a variety of side effects. The benefit of laser care is that only one treatment is required for most patients.

WHAT IS NAIL FUNGUS?

A fungus is an organism that lives in warm moist areas. Fungus of the toenails is a common problem that can affect people of all ages, although it most commonly affects individuals who are older. Toenail fungus often begins as an infection called tinea pedis (athletes foot). Over time it grows underneath the nail and causes changes to its appearance, such as a yellow or brownish discoloration.

IS THIS COVERED BY MY INSURANCE?
