Does it hurt?
A. It is a mild sensation of heat under the toenail. As we go over the cuticle it is a bit more sensitive but people say its not painful.
Does Insurance pay for this?
A. No, we have not seen any insurance coverage for toenail fungus treatment, tattoo removal or facial rejuvination. These are considered cosmetic procedures.
How much does this cost?
A. We have a scale listed under "Prices, Prices, Prices".
It depends on the number of toes we do.
How many sessions will it take?
A. 70% of the time, it is cured with one session. We do require a scheduled 3 month follow up. If an additional treatment is required at that time, we will do it for 1/2 the original cost.
Can I wear toenail polish?
A. We need naked toes to work the laser. The light needs to get through. After the treatment, you can certainly paint up...
But won't it be nice to watch the new nail grow out?
Will this permanently stop the fungus?
A. The FDA has approved this laser for this purpose and yes, the treatment is permanent. But you can reinfect yourself by not following the aftercare instructions or by reinfection in those wet, warm climates that this fungus loves.
