Laser Toenail Treatments is a dual laser treatment which penetrates your nails and gets rid of the problem at the source, the nail bed. We use a single laser called the Er:Yag to drill tiny holes into the nail bed and then we use another laser called the Nd:Yag to precisely heat the nail. Then a topical solution available in almost every pharmacy without a prescription is applied twice a day to the nail as now we are able to get the medication to the affected area. Then, over a few months the nail heals and is again beautiful. The procedure is repeated in 3 weeks for 3-5 treatments, depending on your results.
Does it hurt?Yes it does sting for a second. The pain only lasts for a few seconds. It is the sensation of heat. We do use a cooler machine to help with the discomfort. We do not use anesthetic as the discomfort is a signal that we have achieved the depth we need for the treatment. You are able to wear shoes and walk after the treatments.

How long until my nails look great?
