You will be able to walk out of the office just as well as you walked in, you might even have a smile on your face. All nails are treated with the laser. The total treatment time is approximately 30 minutes. The procedure is performed three times six weeks apart. The treatment does not require anesthesia as the associated discomfort is mild. Following the treatment, the patient must provide good hygiene of the feet to experience a good long term result. Laser treatment results are best when the nails are trimmed regulary of diseased nail and topical antifungals are used for about 1 year. Results are usually seen about three months after the first laser treatment.
