Onychomycosis is a common infection caused by different types of fungi that can affect people of all ages. You can get onychomycosis if you walk barefoot in damp public places, have reduced circulation, or even have a minor skin/nail injury.
Signs of onychomycosis include:
When you come in for your appointment, the doctor will assess both feet and recommend a treatment plan tailored to suit your needs.
Most patients feel little to no pain when receiving laser treatment. Some may feel a warming sensation or a slight prick.
There is no recovery period after receiving treatment, meaning you can proceed with regular activities immediately after.
When booking an appointment, please block off at least an hour of your time. This hour includes your consultation and treatment if recommended by doctor.
Because this procedure is considered aesthetic and not medical, health insurance does not provide coverage. However, you can use any HSA, Medical IRA, or Flexible Spending Account to cover the cost of the procedure.
In most cases, only one treatment is needed along with a preventative post-treatment package. However the amount of sessions needed depends on the severity of the condition.
