Q-Clear Laser Treatment for Fungal ToenailsNail fungus is difficult to eradicate because the fungus grows under the nail plate in the nail bed. Topical medications have a lower success rate in treating this condition. Oral drug therapy is effective in about 65-70 percent of patients. However, there are potential side effects from the medication, including liver toxicity. Laser therapy is safe and effective.

Do your toenails appear yellow, brittle or thickened?

Then perhaps you suffer from a toenail infection, a condition that will continue to worsen over time if measures are not taken to stop the infection. Pain in your toenails might be an end result. Until now, the only solutions for unsightly toenail infections were to surgically remove the nail and apply topical treatments, which have a known poor success rate; or more recently, prescription medications, which have many potentially dangerous side effects and require blood tests.

Lasers are the latest treatment for your unsightly toenail infections.

The laser treatment will take about 30 minutes to treat both feet and there is usually no discomfort during or after the treatment. Your physician will discuss post-treatment care to avoid unsightly unwanted re-infections.

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.
