Laser Toenail Fungus Procedure

Laser toenail fungus removal is a relatively new procedure that was developed for the specific purpose of eradicating toenail fungus completely. There are several different medical lasers that are currently used to remove toenail fungus. While some lasers used in the process are better than others the idea behind the procedure is the same.

The laser toenail fungus procedure takes generally anywhere between 20-30 minutes and requires several treatments to ensure complete eradication of the fungus. The practitioner will use a medical laser to go over every millimeter of your toes in a grid pattern to ensure absolute eradication. If the nails have not been re-infected from the patients’ environment it should grow back nice and clean. At this point in time there have been no reported side effects regarding the use of laser toenail fungus treatment.

The most important part of the laser toenail fungus removal procedure is not the medical procedure itself but what happens afterwards. The person receiving laser toenail fungus removal needs to make sure that they maintain a toenail fungus free environment. That means things like old gym shoes and dirty showers/wet damp areas need to be completely cleaned and disinfected. Laser toenail fungus removal is completely ineffective if the original germs that infected you are still present in the environment.
