Laser Nail Fungal Treatment
Dr. Vick's ClearToe Laser treatment for nail fungus disease, the first and only one available in Louisiana.
Nail fungus is prevalent worldwide and up until now, has had very limited, ineffective, and undesirable treatment options. These options include topical antifungal creams that cannot penetrate the nail adequately to completely treat fungus, oral antifungals that are hepatotoxic, or extreme damage of the nail.
ClearSense technology heats the nail and the nail bed with laser energy resulting in a decrease of nail fungus and temporary increase in the growth of clear nails. With ClearSense's technology, the practitioner knows when he or she reaches the optimum clinical endpoint, maximizing treatment efficacy, comfort and safety.
ClearToe is an easy treatment to perform and ClearSense provides rapid treatment times. A typical treatment for all ten toes is 15-20 minutes; practitioners enjoy an efficient patient throughput.
The Sciton laser allows us to treat the organisms that cause nail fungal infections in the toenails and fingernails. The Sciton ClearSense treatment with ClearToe heats the nail and the nail bed with laser energy, effectively and safely treating the fungus and promoting the growth of clear nails.
Previous treatments for nail fungal infections were largely ineffective or undesirable. Topical treatment creams cannot penetrate deeply enough to treat the fungus, and oral antifungal medications can be toxic to the liver.
Studies have shown laser treatments to be an effective method to treat this condition. More than one treatment may be required, depending on the severity of the infection. Treatments take 10 to 20 minutes and there is little-to-no down time. You may resume normal activity immediately following treatment. We recommend that you wear new shoes and wash your socks thoroughly after treatment to prevent the spread of fungus.
