Laser Treatment for Fungal Nails
Treating fungal nails with laser therapy is a method that is increasingly being used to effectively combat nail fungal infections. Here's how such treatment generally unfolds:
Treatment Sessions: Multiple sessions are usually required for an effective treatment of fungal nails using laser. During each session, a specific wavelength of laser light is directed at the affected nails. The laser energy penetrates the nail plate and targets the fungus without damaging the surrounding skin.
Mechanism of Action: The heat from the laser destroys the fungus without harming the surrounding tissue. This process helps to eliminate the fungal infection and promotes the growth of healthy nails.
Duration and Number of Sessions: The duration of the treatment and the number of sessions required can vary based on the severity of the infection and the nails' response to the treatment.
Aftercare and Results: Following each session, there is often no specific recovery time required. You can continue your daily activities. Over time, healthy nails should begin to grow to replace the infected nails.
