Nail Fungus FAQ

How does the laser work?
Clear Nail’s PinPointe Foot Laser kills the fungus living in and under toenails — passing through the toenail without causing any damage whatsoever — to the nail or the surrounding skin.


What can I expect in the doctor’s office?
A consultation, the procedure, and any follow-up visits the doctor prescribes. For more information contact us at 1-855-NO-FUNGS or click HERE.


How much does it cost?
Thank you for your interest in our Clear Nail Laser Clinic. We hope we can answer your questions below. If not, please don’t hesitate to call us at 1 855 663 8647.

Clear Nail laser therapy fees are not covered by OHIP, but many private insurance plans now cover this type of laser therapy. And we make it easy for you to find out how much coverage you will receive. Just come in and see us, for free.

With a Clear Nail no-cost, no-obligation consultation, we will give you an estimate and letter that you can submit to your insurance company to see if you qualify for coverage under your private plan. Again, there is no commitment when you come in for this free consultation.

Every fungal nail infection requires its own diagnosis and treatment plan. At your first consultation and assessment, you will not be charged any fees. This meeting is to determine how many nails require treatment and we provide this treatment plan free of charge at this first meeting.

In our experience, fungal nail infections typically require 3 painless sessions, each session, one month apart. The costs associated with these three sessions depend on how many nails, feet and hands are affected and we explain everything including treatment plan, fees and payment plan at your first, no charge, consultation.

If you require more information, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

At Clear Nail, we believe good nail health is more than just laser treatment. We always recommend our patients follow some simple guidelines. We provide you with this information to ensure you keep your nails free from fungus both before and after our treatment.

Please tell us where you are located and we will arrange a free consultation at the Clear Nail Laser Centre nearest you. Contact us here HERE.


Is the procedure painful?
No. Some feel a slight warming sensation and a very few report a “pinprick.”


Is there a recovery period?
None — walk in and walk out. The toenail takes time to grow out but when it does, it will be transformed into something clear and healthy looking.

How long does the procedure take?
Each session takes less than 30 minutes. Up to 3 sessions are typically required, each, 1 month apart.


Will the fungus come back?
There is a small chance of reinfection if the fungus continues to be present in the environment.

Who developed it?
Leading scientists and medical professionals working together for 20 years with funding provided by the U.S. National Institutes of Health developed the technology in the patented PinPointe Foot Laser. The Clear Nail system is the only one approved by Health Canada. The Pinpointe Foot Laser is the laser treatment for toenail fungus.

Pinpointe Laser treatment is a great new way to stop toenail or nail fungus. For more information contact us at 1-855-NO-FUNGS or click HERE – 5 locations to serve you in the Greater Toronto Area!
