Laser - FAQ
The laser beam heats up the nail to a temperature of around 45℃, which is enough to kill the fungal spores. Only the cells responsible for the infection are destroyed.
Most people feel no pain. You will feel a mild to moderate heat sensation during the procedure which lasts one to four minutes per toenail.
The footcare treatment and laser therapy takes about 40-50 minutes.
Clinical research demonstrates no adverse reactions or known side effects.
No, just walk in and walk out.
The infection improves following one treatment, however we use a two treatment protocol with the second treatment to be completed six weeks later. Like any infection, there is the potential for the fungal infection to recur. We therefore also recommend care techniques to reduce this recurrence.
At the time of the procedure, the toenail will not become instantly clear, it takes time to grow out from the nail base. Within 3 months post treatment, healthy new nail growth should be visible. Fungal nails grow slowly, so you may not see a significant improvement for several months, but you should see a gradual growth of clear nail.
Laser therapy only works on discoloured nails that are a direct result of fungal infection.
• It is important to remove all nail polish at least the day before your treatment • Bring in a clean pair of socks to wear home • Bring in your frequently worn footwear to be sanitised • Additional pre and post treatment advice will be given when making your appointment.
