Laser Toenail Treatment
Safe and effective treatment to get rid of your toenail fungus.
The days of living with toenail fungus are long gone. Laser treatment is the most effective way to treat your toenail fungus, and provides a great alternative to prescription medications. It makes a safe and effective option that works better than topical treatments and does not require any oral medications. If you are suffering from toenail fungus, Raleigh Foot & Ankle Center can help your toenails improve by using Cool Touch Laser Treatment for toenail fungus.
How does laser treatment work?
The Cool Touch laser treatment is FDA-cleared, quick, and painless. The procedure usually takes two visits to Raleigh Foot & Ankle Center. Your first visit involves a consultation with one of our podiatrists, where he will confirm the diagnosis of nail fungus and lay out a treatment plan. You may also receive a regimen to help prevent toenail fungus problems in the future.
Your second visit is when you will receive your personalized laser treatment. One of our trained laser technicians will perform your nail fungus treatment. The visit should take approximately 30 minutes and is a virtually painless procedure. You will feel warmth on your toes, but no pain. Anesthesia is not necessary for laser treatment, and there is no down time after the procedure. You should be able to return to your normal daily routine immediately after receiving this safe and effective treatment.
When will my nails be clear?
You will begin to see the improvement in your toenail fungus as the nails grow out. Depending on how fast your nails grow, it could take 3-6 months to see improvement. Your doctor may ask you to schedule a follow-up visit 6 months after your laser treatment, to make sure that the nail is clearing up. It can sometimes take up to a full year for your toenails to clear up following laser treatment for toenail fungus. In some cases, multiple treatments may be necessary.
How much does laser treatment cost?
Unfortunately, laser treatment for toenail fungus is not covered by insurance. The cost of your treatment will vary based on the severity of the condition and the number of toes affected, but will range from $250 to $500.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I get laser treatment on an acrylic nail?
No. Acrylic nails can become flammable and catch fire when exposed to the Cool Touch Laser. If you have acrylic toenails, we ask that you wait until you have the nail removed before performing laser treatment on that toenail.
