laser toenail fungus removal

Toenail fungus, also known as onychomycosis, is a common fungal infection that affects the toenails. It can cause thickened, discolored, and brittle nails, making them difficult to cut or trim. While there are various treatment options available for toenail fungus, laser treatment with the Candela device is becoming increasingly popular due to its effectiveness and minimal side effects.

What is the Candela laser?

The Candela laser, also known as the GentleYAG laser, is a medical grade laser used for various dermatological treatments. It emits a specific wavelength of light that penetrates through the toenail and targets the fungus underneath without damaging the surrounding skin or tissue.

How does Laser Treatment Work for Toenail Fungus?

During the laser treatment, the Candela laser is used to deliver pulses of high-intensity light to the affected toenail. The light energy is absorbed by the fungal cells and converts into heat, effectively killing them without harming the healthy tissue. This process also helps stimulate the body's natural immune response to fight off the infection.

Benefits of Laser Treatment with Candela laser

  • Highly Effective: Studies have shown that laser treatment with the Candela laser has a success rate of up to 80% in treating toenail fungus.
  • Non-Invasive: Unlike oral medications or surgical procedures, laser treatment is non-invasive and does not require any incisions or injections.
  • Quick and Painless: The treatment can be completed in as little as 10 minutes, and most patients report feeling little to no discomfort during the procedure.
  • Minimal Side Effects: Laser treatment with Candela has minimal side effects, such as temporary redness or warmth in the treated area, which typically subside within a few hours.

What to Expect During and After the Treatment

Before the laser treatment, your doctor will clean and trim your toenails to prepare them for the procedure. Then, a cooling gel may be applied onto the affected area to protect the surrounding skin. During the treatment, you may feel a warm sensation or slight discomfort, but it is generally well-tolerated.

After the treatment, there is no downtime, and you can resume your daily activities immediately. However, it is recommended to avoid wearing closed-toe shoes for a few days and keep your feet dry and clean to prevent any potential reinfection.
