Class IV laser therapy is one of the safest and most effective ways to treat toenail fungus (onychomycosis)! Laser therapy penetrates the nail bed and kills the fungus living underneath the nail – without pain and without any harmful side effects. Laser therapy is a quick and easy treatment allowing patients to relax during the procedure.


What is Onychomycosis?

Fungal of the nails. They can create major discomfort and even embarrassment. They are also EXTREMELY COMMON; affecting millions of people each year.

Additionally, the fungus is easily spread. Individuals with fungus may have contracted it through shared bathroom space, public locker rooms, showers, and pools, shared clothing or shoes, and even carpeting.

For some, the fungus is simply genetic. When this is the case, treatment can become even more difficult given the likelihood of reoccurrence.

You may have onychomycosis if you notice any of the following symptoms:

  • Yellow or other discoloration of your toenails thickened or brittle toenails
  • An unpleasant odor coming from the nail area
  • Pain to the nail

Fungal nails are common and affect nearly 10% of the US population.

Laser therapy offers an effective, safe option for treating fungal toenails without the side effects of many oral medications
