Your toenail will be cleaned and filed prior to the laser treatment. As each toe is treated with the laser you will feel a mild, warming sensation. The laser treatment will take under 10 minutes to treat both feet and there is usually no discomfort after the treatment. The physician will discuss post-treatment care to avoid fungal re-infection.
You will notice results within 2-4 months, depending on how quickly your toenails grow. New, clear growth begins to appear at the bottom portion of your nail as the diseased portion of the nail grows out.
You may return to your normal daily routine immediately after your toenail treatment, including painting your nails or pedicure treatments.
