Eliminate pesky foot fungus with this revolutionary new laser technology.

For some, having a foot fungus is just downright annoying, while for patients with diabetes, a foot fungus can cause more serious complications. However, one thing is certain: a toenail fungus can affect anyone’s quality of life. That’s why The Laser Nail Centers Foot Fungus serving McLean/Great Falls, Ashburn/Leesburg, Fairfax/Burke and Reston/ Herdon are pleased to offer Toenail Fungus Laser Treatment for patients suffering from unsightly foot fungus.

What is Toenail Fungus Laser Treatment?

This is the first FDA-cleared laser treatment for the removal of foot fungus and to promote clear toenails.

How does this treatment work?

Toenail Fungus Laser Treatment targets fungus that lives under your toenail. We will shine the laser on the infected nail and allow the light to pass through it. This is painless and won’t damage the surrounding skin or nail. Some patients state that they only feel a warming sensation during treatment.

The procedure can be done right here in our office as an outpatient procedure and it only takes about 30 minutes. There is no recovery time necessary when getting PinPointe FootLaser treatment so you can immediately return to your daily activities.

Are there any side effects of treatment?

The procedure is safe and effective for treating toenail fungus and does not pose any harmful side effects to those who opt for this treatment.

When will I notice results?

One thing to keep in mind is that your toenail will not be clear immediately. In fact, even though the fungus has been treated it could take a couple months before you see a clear toenail.

Can foot fungus return after treatment?

Unfortunately, fungus is everywhere and so this won’t prevent future infections from occurring; however, many of our patients have reported an improvement after only one treatment. If you are worried about future foot fungus problems, talk your podiatrist at The Laser Nail Centers serving McLean/Great Falls, Ashburn/Leesburg, Fairfax/Burke and Reston/ Herdon about ways to protect yourself from reinfection.
