How long does the procedure take?
The procedure normally takes 20-40 minutes.
How long do the results last?
The laser treatment will successfully eliminate the fungal infection from the nail. However, the treatment will not stop future infections in the same or other nails.
Will the procedure hurt?
The procedure can be uncomfortable, so local anaesthetic gel is normally used in the area.
How many sessions will I need?
This is very dependent on the severity of infection prior to treatment. Most clients find that between 4-8 sessions are sufficient.
When can I go back to normal day-to-day activities?
You can go back to normal activities the same day. Though we recommend you avoid excessive heat for about two weeks after (e.g. sunbathing, sunbeds, saunas). Your skin may be quite red and swollen for a few days after the treatment, you should consider this if you’re planning a trip or special day as you may need to wear specific footwear.
Are there any alternatives to this procedure?
Yes, there are alternative acne treatments, however laser is a proven technique for fungal nail infections.
Can I combine this procedure with other procedures?
Yes, many clients choose to have other procedures at the same time.
