Onychomycosis is a fungal infection of the fingernails or toenails, which can be promoted by a variety of factors including family history, fitness activities, bathing in communal showers (gym, etc.) and more. Nail fungus can become a significant cosmetic concern as it causes your nails to become discolored and disfigured. The Nordlys Nd:YAG laser can treat onychomycosis rapidly and effectively.
The Nordlys Nd:YAG laser emits infrared light, which is aimed at the whole nail, including the nail folds. While the sub-millisecond pulse weakens the structure of the fungus, the heat produced by the light eliminates it.
*The innovative technology of this laser allows for faster treatment of nail fungus. During the treatment 5 laser passes are applied per nail. In most cases, the treatment takes only one session.
Yes. Nordlys patented cooling system continuously emits cool air across the treatment area, making it not only painless for the patient, but also comfortable.

Yes. This treatment has been clinically-proven to be safe, comfortable and effective.
