According to Kerry Zang, DPM, 10 to 13 percent of us will get a toenail fungus infection, called onychomycosis. In individuals over the age of 50, it can go up to 60 or 70 percent. "Over-the-counter products are only about 8 percent effective. Also, most patients don't treat their shoes, so they get re-infected."

Dr. Kerry Zang

"A cold laser works at two wavelengths (405 and 635) which work together to kill the fungus. The red light helps generate new blood vessels and stimulates the immune response. The blue light is anti-microbial and kills fungus and works to produce an anti-oxidant which destabilizes the cell membrane of the fungus," says Dr. Zang.
