Laser Treatment for Toenail Fungus

If you have a toenail fungus, you know it is difficult to get rid of. Most over the counter remedies have only a 1-2% cure rate while products like Lamisil have approximately a 90% cure rate but most people are worried about the potential for harmful side effects and they don't want to try to process this through their liver. 

There is another option... Laser treatments! Clinical sutdies have shown that around 90% of the patients that were treated this way developed normal nail growth after only one lazer treatment! And there are no harmful side effects. This is GREAT news!

Nuvolase PinPointe FootLaser is, so far, the only laser that has gained FDA approval for the treatment of toenail fungus. The treatment is usually 40 minutes long and the cost can be anywhere between $200-500 dollars per treatment.  And yes, that can mean per toenail.  Most patients will only need one treatment but there are cases where more than one treatment are necessary.  The bad news is that any type of toenail fungus treatment is considered "Cosmetic" by most medical insurances so it is typically not covered.  I personally think that the laser treatment of toenail fungus is the best option by far!

If you are interested in having your toenail fungus laser-ed, check with your 
local doctor to find a Laser Technician specializing in this type of procedure.  Or go to
