The Yag laser provides a safe and effective solution for the treatment of nail fungus (onychomycosis). It effectively targets the fungi responsible for infection, while leaving the nail and surrounding healthy tissue intact. If your nails are discolored, have yellow streaks under the nail, distorted or thickened, brittle, crumbly or ragged you may have a nail fungus. The Yag laser treatment for nail fungus is virtually painless and there is no downtime. In fact nail polish and pedicures are allowed after treatments. Since it takes a toe nail 9-12 months to completely grow out an initial treatment is performed then another 6 month later. A final follow up visit is usually required 3-6 months after the last treatment.
