Laser Toenail Treatment
Finally, a treatment has emerged for toenail fungus that is both effective and safe!
Laser treatment is available at Raleigh Foot and Ankle Center to help people suffering from toenail fungus, without the poor success rates of topical medicines and without the organ damage risks of oral medication. Unfortunately, laser treatment for toenail fungus is not covered by insurance. Costs vary based on severity of condition, but range from $250 to $500.
The Cool Touch laser procedure at Raleigh Foot and Ankle Center is FDA- cleared, quick, and painless. The procedure process usually takes two visits to our office. The first visit involves a consultation with one of our doctors. The doctor will confirm the diagnosis of fungus and lay out a treatment plan. You may also receive a regimen to help prevent fungus problems in the future. View our video
A second visit to our office is necessary for your personalized laser treatment. Our laser technician will painlessly perform your treament, answering any questions, and keeping you comfortable. The visit will take approximately 30 minutes. You will feel warmth on your toes during the laser procedure, but it will not be painful. No anesthesia is necessary. You may return to your normal daily routine immediately after your toenail treatment.
Following your laser treatment, you will begin noticing improvement as your nail grows out. Depending on how fast your nails grow, you may see improvement in 3-6 months. Your doctor may ask you to visit him 6 months after your treatment, to make sure that clearing of the nail is happening. In some severe cases, a second laser treatment may be necessary at that time. For some people, it may take up to one year for toenails to clear following treatment.
