What is the FootLaser?

The PinPointe™ FootLaser™ is the treatment we use to treat toenail fungus. It is a patented laser specifically designed for toenail fungus. The laser operates in a very tight spectrum of near-infrared light. It shines through the toenail and vaporizes the fungus.

How effective is the treatment?

The laser is a very effective treatment when our protocol is followed. The PinPointe FootLaser is among the most effective laser treatments in the industry. Most patients experience significant improvement. Comparatively, topical treatments are minimally effective, and oral medications may cause side effects.

How long does the laser treatment take?

A complete appointment usually lasts about an hour, with the actual laser treatment lasting 30-40 minutes. Follow-up treatment is recommended 3 months later.

Does the laser treatment hurt?

You may feel a warm sensation, but the treatment causes little to no discomfort.

How safe is the laser treatment?

Clinical studies on this laser treatment to treat toenail fungus reported no adverse reactions, injuries, disabilities, or side effects. The FDA has cleared the FootLaser as a treatment for toenail fungus as well.

Will I be able to walk after treatment?

Yes! The laser treatment for toenail fungus is a walk in/walk out procedure. You can resume your normal activities immediately.

How quickly will I notice an improvement in my toenails?

The average toenail replaces itself every 6-9 months. You should see healthy, new growth of your nail within the first 4 months following treatment.

Will my insurance cover the laser treatment?

The laser treatment for toenail fungus is considered cosmetic and not covered by insurance. The Laser Nail Centers accept major credit cards, checks, and cash.

When can I paint my nails?

You may use nail polish immediately after your laser treatment.
