Laser and Fungus

Medical Foot Solutions uses a unique pulsed Nd:YAG 1064 nm LASER, developed by Cutera, a leading expert in LASER technology, in the treatment of fungal nails. The Cutera Genesis Plus system is one of only two LASERs that are approved by Health Canada for the treatment of fungal toenails. Medical Foot Solutions was the first podiatric clinic in Halton to use the Genesis system. Purchased in 2010 Medical Foot Solutions has successfully treated hundreds of infected toenails and we find it an effective alternative to oral treatments.

Typically LASER treatments takes 5 minutes per toenail with a recommended total of 3 treatments spaced 6 weeks apart. The treatment does not require any needles or anesthetic since the treatment causes only minimal discomfort.

As with most fungal nail treatments, it will take several months for the patient to see an improvement in the nail plate. Therefore, it is important to begin treatment as soon as possible, especially if you are hoping to have clear healthy nails for summertime sandals.
