Afraid of a Laser? There’s No Need to Be

PinPointe FootLaser Control Panel

The fact that you’re reading this likely means you have been searching for a solution to your nail fungus problem. You may have even tried a remedy or two, but the fungus has returned. You’d like to get rid of the fungus and be done with it, but laser treatment sounds a little frightening.

Though it may seem unusual, laser treatment is a very effective alternative to home remedies and even oral medications, which can pose health risks. In fact, the PinPointe™ FootLaser™ is similar to lasers already commonly in use for treatments like eye surgery, dental work, and hair removal.

The PinPointe™ FootLaser™ sends a specially designed laser beam into and through the nail and/or surrounding skin that is absorbed by the pigment in the fungal organisms.

When the laser light is absorbed, it causes the pigment in the organisms to heat. This heat damages or kills the fungal organisms. If all the fungal organisms are killed, your toenail can grow out normally.

Many of the treatments for nail fungus are ineffective because they don’t kill the fungus where it lives – in the nail bed. The laser is able to penetrate the nail and kill living fungus inside the nail bed. This is done without any long-term damage to the nail or your skin.

A typical laser treatment for all 10 toes involves three, 45-minute sessions that are performed in the comfort and privacy of our office. (Session length can be as short as ten minutes if only one nail is affected). Most people feel only warmth during treatment, and the laser can be stopped at any time if the procedure becomes too uncomfortable.

The PinPointe™ FootLaser™ treatment is safe, and approved by strict Health Canada standards. So go ahead, take advantage of modern science and book a no-charge consultation! Call 1-855-NO-FUNGS or click here to view our GTA locations.
