Laser for Toenail Fungus

Toenail fungus (onychomycosis) is a common condition, affecting one in ten Canadians and it is estimated that half the population will have at least one infected toe during the course of their lifetime. Laser is the newest treatment option to treat toenail fungus. We will first assess your nails and confirm the diagnosis before treatment is undertaken. Treatment is safe and painless, lasting 10-15 minutes. At Rejuvaderm we use the Nd:Yag laser which has been proven to be the most effective laser for treating toenail fungus. 

What Are the Benefits of Laser for Toenail Fungus?
The main benefits include: highly effective (clinical studies show 88% effective), drug-free, safe, and non-invasive.

How Does Laser for Toenail Fungus Work?
Tiny pulses of light from the laser will treat the fungus of the toenail & below (nail matrix). The fungus is treated without any damage to the surrounding nail or skin.

Is the Laser Painful?
Most patients feel a warming sensation during the procedure which is tolerable.

When Will I Notice Results?
Results are not immediate. However, as your nail grows out, the new nail growth should be clear. Toenails grow slowly – especially nails infected with fungus. So it may take 6-12 months for your toenail to clear.

Will the Fungus Come Back?
Reinfection with toenail fungus may be acquired anywhere from your environment. Information will be provided on how to prevent it from recurring.
