Nail Fungus (Onchomycosis)

Toenail fungus affects 30 million Americans, posing both physical and cosmetic problems for those affected. Known medically as onychomycosis, it can cause nail discoloration and deformity, and in some cases, pain or discomfort while walking.

A New Treatment Approach for Nail Fungus

Toenail Nail fungus has been difficult to treat with success. The only options have been topical or oral medication that have shown limited benefit. In addition, the oral medication may cause liver damage. Now there is an FDA approved laser treatment for nail fungus which is both safe and effective.

Cutera GenesisPlus Laser Treatment

The system applies laser energy to the toenail plate and surrounding tissue. The laser light gradually heats the fungus and promotes the growth of healthy, clear nails. The procedure requires no anesthetics and poses no risk of serious side effects. Treatment
typically takes 10-20 minutes, and patients are able to return to regular activities immediately following the procedure.
