Laser treatment, improvement in clear nails

Onychomycosis or fungal nails can be associated with embarrassment or shame and can sometimes be painful in certain individuals due to the thickening of the nails. Many patients have tried antifungal creams or medical nail solutions for one or two years with a low rate of success.

Le PinPointe Laser is a cutting-edge technology that operates by thermal effect to destroy the fungus using an amplified light. This non-invasive treatment is effective and requires no anesthesia.

PinPointe Laser is more efficient than the older models Genesis plus and Fox III due to its wavelength targeting the fungus and microwaves pulses heating up the fungus. These two characteristics make the treatment more efficient and less painful. Compared to oral medication, the laser doesn’t bring any uncomfortable side effects or medical interaction. It is a safe treatment to improve the aspect of the nail.

Is it painful?

The treatment is comfortable. The patient does not feel much at the beginning. Sometimes during the end of the treatment, it is possible to feel a pinch, but nothing to worry about. Remember that no recovery time is required.
