Prepping the Patient for Laser Toe Nail Fungus Treatments:
- Potential Patient cannot have extra iron in their diet or as an additional vitamin supplement
- Avoid sunlight to treated area one week prior and post treatments for optimum results
- Once approved for treatment, the patient needs to visit the nail salon for specialized cut, file, and grinding of the toenail (if really thick and yellow) – healthcare provider will issue a referral.
Toenail Fungus Removal Treatment Expectations:
Once the patient is prepped by a nearby nail salon (takes up to thirty minutes), the nail is then photographed and lasered (takes an hour or so). The laser treatment kills the fungus in the existing nails; new, fungus free nails will take an average of 6-12 months to grow back out. The picture below is a common before and after for a patient’s anticipated result.
Common Treatments for Toenail Fungus Remedy:
- Topical Creams (4-6% effective)
- Lamisil (41% effective, and requires a liver check every 30 days)
- Lasers (99% effective, vaporizes the fungus)
1% of patients cannot be treated for toenail fungus due to chemical injury to the nail. This will be determined during your complimentary consultation.
