Onychomycosis (nail fungus) is a common concern and chronic health concern for many people affecting confidence and embarrassment. Until now, there has only been one means of treating nail fungus: harsh prescriptive medications. Prescriptive medications have their own risks of side effects, however, they are still available if necessary. At Salveo Naturopathic and Skin Care we offer laser assisted treatment of onychomycosis with our 1064nm NDYAG laser as well as manicures and pedicures.
Each session the laser technician will apply ultrasound gel over the treatment area, and set the appropriate parameters on the laser, and begin lasing the area. Each laser shot you will feel nothing but a slight warm sensation, but we will ensure that you remain very comfortable during the procedure.
We recommend up to 6 treatment sessions 1-2 weeks apart from another for optimal results. We expect at least 80-100% reduction in nail fungus over 6 treatments*. Typically no maintenance is required. However, over time the nail fungus will reappear, so we recommend a touch-up treatment as you feel is appropriate.
