Toenail fungus or fingernail fungus can be embarrassing, and even painful. Now we can treat this annoying problem by using a state-of-the-art laser called “GenesisPlus”. The GenesisPlus laser system is a new system designed to treat toenail fungus in such a way that it does not affect the surrounding skin or nail in any way.
What is GenesisPlus?
GenesisPlus is a new laser perfected for safely and effectively treating onychomycosis (toenail fungus). By targeting the fungus directly, GenesisPlus gets to the source of the problem immediately.
How does GenesisPlus work?
Tiny pulses of light from the GenesisPlus laser pass through the toenail to the fungus underneath. The fungus is irradiated without any damage to the surrounding nail or skin.
How long does the procedure take?
Depending on how many toes are affected, the GenesisPlus laser procedure will take 10-20 minutes.
Is GenesisPlus painful?
Most people feel a slight warming sensation during the the procedure. No pain medication is needed and most people find the treatment very easy to tolerate.
How many treatments will I need?
Many patients will only 1 to 3 treatments, but some may need more depending on how serve the infection is.
When will I see results?
You won’t notice anything immediately following treatment. However, as your nail grows out, the new nail growth should be clear. Toe nails grow slowly –especially nails infected with fungus. So, it may take 6-12 months for your toenail to clear.
Will the fungus come back?
Reinfection with toenail fungus may be acquired anywhere from your environment, for example, in damp areas such as public swimming pools. Consult with your healthcare professional to understand how to prevent toenail fungus from reoccurring.
