Onychomycosis is a fungal infection of the fingernails or toenails, which can be promoted by a variety of factors including family history, fitness activities, bathing in communal showers (gym, etc.) and more. Nail fungus can become a significant cosmetic concern as it causes your nails to become discolored and disfigured. The Nordlys Nd:YAG laser can treat onychomycosis rapidly and effectively.
How does the treatment work?
∗The Nordlys Nd:YAG laser emits infrared light, which is aimed at the whole nail, including the nail folds. While the sub-millisecond pulse weakens the structure of the toenail fungus, the heat produced by the light eliminates it.
How long does the treatment take?
∗The innovative technology of this laser allows for faster treatment of nail fungus. During the treatment 5 laser passes are applied per nail. In most cases, the nail fungus treatment takes only one session.
Is this treatment more effective than antifungals or topical treatments?
∗Studies have shown the Nordlys Nd:YAG laser to be more effective than topical solutions and at least as effective as anti-fungal. However, unlike anti-fungal, the laser treatment does not require a long-term commitment.
