What is Laser Toenail Fungus Removal?
Toenail fungus is a fungal infection under the nail that will cause the nail to thicken and turn yellow. Without treatment, this infection can spread to other toenails.
Most patients need just one treatment, though more may be recommended. It may take several months before the visual signs of the infection fade.
A laser is used to penetrate through the toenail to the nail bed with heat where the fungus is present. When the laser is targeted to the area of infection, the heat that's produced inhibits the growth of the fungus and destroys it.
