Frequently Asked Questions...

IS THE LASER TREATMENT PAINFUL?

There is no need for anesthesia or painkillers.

Some patients may experience slight warmth or an

occasional snapping sensation during the procedure.

The laser light passes through the toenail without

damaging the surrounding skin.

DOES THE LASER TREATMENT WORK?

Studies show that that FDA approved Q-Clear

fungal laser treatments clear the nail of fungus as

well or better than oral medications that require

blood tests and have a variety of side effects.

The benefit of laser care is that only one treatment

is required for most patients.

WHAT IS NAIL FUNGUS?

A fungus is an organism that lives in warm moist

areas. Fungus of the toenails is a common problem

that can affect people of all ages, although it most

commonly affects individuals who are older. Toenail

fungus often begins as an infection called tinea

pedis (athletes foot). Over time it grows underneath

the nail and causes changes to its appearance,

such as a yellow or brownish discoloration.

IS THIS COVERED BY MY INSURANCE?
