Onychomycosis is a fungal infection of the nails causing the nail to thicken, discolour, deform, crumble and split leading to pain, discomfort and disfigurement. Psychosocial and emotional effects resulting from oychomycosis are common and may significantly effect quality of life. In diabetics and immuno-compromised people, it can lead to serious bacterial infections which may even threaten life and limb.
How does PinPointe FootLaser work?
PinPointe FootLaser sends invisible laser energy (at 1064nm in wavelength) through the nail and surrounding skin in the form of infra-red light. This energy is absorbed by the pigment in the fungal organisms causing them to heat up, killing them instantly.
Although these organisms are destroyed during the treatment, it usually takes six to twelve months for the normal, healthy looking nail to grow out. This will leave your nails looking shiny and new so you can walk in confidence again.
With over one million nails treated worldwide with no side effects and over 70% success rate, PinPointe FootLaser is the safest and most proven treatment available. Treatment lasts only thirty minutes instead of several months and most patients feel only slight warmth in their toenails during the procedure.
