Light Force Pro Laser for Onychomycosis

Onychomycosis is a common fungal nail infection that can affect one or more of the toenails and/or fingernails, but is most often found on the toenails. If left untreated the infection has the ability to spread from one nail to another or spread to other individuals. Onychomycosis is contagious and can be transmitted by direct contact or through someone’s shoes. If left untreated it can lead to unsightly and potentially painful problems, and for some individuals it can make them more susceptible to other serious complications. Not only can the problem become physically painful, but it can affect a person’s self-confidence.   

The Treatment

Your physician will determine the severity of your case at your initial visit and create a treatment plan specific to your case. It’s possible to treat the fungus in one session, but in more severe cases it may require follow-up treatments to ensure complete elimination of the fungal infection. Fungal infections have the potential of reappearing; therefore, it’s recommended you follow up with your physician periodically to make sure the fungus is completely eradicated.

Treating onychomycosis will improve your overall nails’ (fingernails and toenails) health and comfort. It will also restore your freedom and confidence to wear open-toed-shoes during the summer or end the feelings of insecurity due to a fungus.

What the Light Force Pro Does

The Light Force Laser Pro creates a beam of light, which penetrates the nail tissue under the nail and disrupts the growth of the fungus and pathogens to eliminate them. Due to the nature of the laser, it is normal to experience some mild discomfort during the treatment. The mild discomfort only occurs during the treatment due to the heat the laser projects. The heat from the laser does not last long and there is no downtime associated with the treatment.
