Laser Treatment For Nail Fungus
Nail Fungus or Onychomycosis refers to a fungal infection of the nail, nail bed, or nail plate. The nail may appear thickened, yellow, or cloudy in appearance. It can affect both fingernails and toenails. It is not life threatening, but it can contribute to pain, discomfort, weakened nail strength and unsightly appearance. Nail fungus affects over 20 million Americans and accounts for half of all nail disorders.
We only use specific laser technology has been cleared by the FDA to treat nail fungus. Laser treatment has been shown to be 80-85% effective in treating nail fungus. Some studies have shown even greater effectiveness.
The procedure for treating nail fungus usually requires only one treatment (some persistent cases may take up to three treatments). These laser treatments are safe, quick and patients report little to no discomfort (warming or rubber band snapping sensation). It is typically completed in 30 minutes or less without the use of anesthesia or oral anti-fungal medications.
The procedure is safe, effective and FDA cleared for treating toenail and fingernail fungus. At laser Sculpture we use Q-Switch 1064nm Alma Laser for treatments. The laser is an Nd-YAG laser that delivers high pulses of energy at 1064 nanometers. This type of laser, using this amount of energy is THE ONLY LASER TYPE THAT IS FDA APPROVED FOR NAIL FUNGUS TREATMENT.

Laser Vein Treatment
While spider and varicose veins have been successfully treated for years through conventional methods such as stripping, ligation and sclerotherapy, these procedures often cause pain and other unwanted symptoms during and after treatment. Laser procedures offer patients more precise results through a minimally invasive procedure, which heats the vein and causes it to close, rather than removing it surgically.
Sclerotherapy is the standard treatment for varicose and spider veins. Sclerotherapy makes use of tiny liquid injections to contract and collapse medium-size veins before breaking down the plasma passageways. By the end of the treatment program, the veins are less visible on the skin surface.
