Our Laser Genesis treatments can help treat problematic fungal nail infections. As the laser passes through the nail and the surrounding tissue, the light is absorbed by and heats up pigment in the fungi, which kills or damages the fungal organism. During the procedure the laser does not come in to direct contact with the nail, and usually all that is felt is a warm sensation, culminating in a small hot pinch is felt at the end, which resolves quickly. Immediately after the procedure, your nails may feel warm for a few minutes.
In the months following the treatment, you’ll begin to see a new, healthy nail growing from the base. Your nail infection should improve following treatment but you will need to continue home care techniques to reduce reoccurrence of the infection. During each consultation, we will advise the best ways to avoid re-infection.
Recommended treatments: Usually three to four treatments are required and it can take up to 12 months for nails to look completely clear.
