Onychomycosis (Nail Fungus)

Overview

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.

  • How does the treatment work?

    +

    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.

  • How long does the treatment take?

    +

    *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.

  • Is the treatment painless?

    +

    Yes. Nordlys patented cooling system continuously emits cool air across the treatment area, making it not only painless for the patient, but also comfortable.

  • Is this treatment more effective than antifungals or topical treatments?

    +

    Studies have shown the Nordlys Nd:YAG laser to be more effective than topical solutions and at least as effective as antifungals. However, unlike antifungals, the laser treatment does not require a long-term commitment and does not present the risk of side effects.

  • Is it safe?

    +

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