IS THERE A RECOVERY PERIOD?

HOW LONG HAS THIS TREATMENT BEEN AVAILABLE?
Clinical studies on Fungus Toenails were initiated in 2007.
WHEN IS IT SAFE TO PAINT MY NAILS OR HAVE A PEDICURE AFTER TREATMENT?
pedicures and the application of nail polish can be done immediately after laser treatment.
IS THE TREATMENT PAINFUL?
Most patients feel no sensation whatsoever. Some may feel a slight warming sensation while a few may feel a slight pin-pricking sensation.
WILL THE FUNGUS GROW BACK?
The infection is cleared after a few treatments. As the fungus is present everywhere in the environment there is a risk of re-infection. Your foot specialist will advise you and recommend techniques to help reduce recurrence of the infection.
