A nail fungal infection, or Onychomycosis, is a fungal imbalance that affects the fingernails and toenails. The most common symptom is a thickening and discolouration of the nail to yellow, green, and even black. As the problem progresses, the nail bed can become uncomfortable, brittle, and even begin breaking off. Nail fungus is surprisingly common and occurs more frequently with age. According to recent statistics, at least 5% of people suffer from nail fungus infection.
But...don't be panic! We are going to help you with our Nail Fungus Genesis, the premium laser for Onychomycosis. It provides a fast and effective solution without additional costs. The unique features of Genesis make it the laser system of choice to maximize your results and effectively clear the nail without oral anti-fungal drug therapies.
Ok, but how does the treatment work? There are some important notes:
Most people do not feel any pain. Some patients may experience slight warmth or occasional snapping sensation during the procedure. If you have any pain during the procedure, the laser power can be decreased slightly to eliminate any pain. No anesthesia is needed.
You may resume all normal activities immediately. If you have any problems or questions, you must contact us.
The amount of time varies on the degree of involvement of the nails. Very thick nails are mechanically reduced to a more normal thickness with specialized equipment. The laser is then applied typically taking only a few minutes. Overall, a visit for consultation and treatment will usually take about 30 minutes.
You must remove all nail polish prior to your treatment.
Post-operative care to help prevent infection
Wear clean shoes/socks home after treatment.
Wash sheets, disinfect shower/bath and vacuum carpets day of treatment.
Apply anti-fungal cream 2X per day for approximately 2 weeks to 3 months depending severity of the infection.
Apply anti-fungal powder to all shoes at least 1x per week for at least 1 month.
Keep nails trimmed and cleaned (disinfecting instruments after each use).
Do not walk barefoot in public places (pool, gym, etc.).
Nail polish may be applied 24 hours after treatment.
The number of treatments needed depends on the severity of the fungus condition.
The average time interval between treatments is 4-6 weeks.
Due to slow nail growth, results may not be noticeable for 3+ months.
Toenails may take 9-12 months and fingernails may take 6-9 months to grow out.
