Q Does the laser treat ugly-fungal toenails?
Yes. The laser has shown to be a very effective treatment for ugly-fungal toenails. It is one of many ways to treat the toenails and offers the patient a way of treating without the side effects noted from pills. The clearing of the nails will take time as the nail grows out; however, the improvements noted are superior to the other forms of treatment. National averages of improvement are about ten percent with topical medication, sixty to seventy-five percent improvements with oral medication, and about eight-five percent with laser treatment. Our MLS laser has no side effects, is totally painless and patients are very happy to see their toenails clearing.
