Non-Surgical Nail Fungus Laser Treatment With Alma Lasers
Nail fungus affects some 30 million embarrassed Americans and many more people worldwide. For many, it inhibits social activities, not wearing sandals, or avoiding the beach or pools during a holiday getaway.
More concerning, is the condition’s medical aspects, from secondary bacterial infections and painful nail thickening to serious complications for diabetic and vascular comprised patients. Until recently, therapies were limited to oral medications such as Lamisil and Sporanox, but potential complications and high failure rates left many patients seeking a better treatment option.
Innovative combination of cutting-edge laser technologies is now available. Delivering laser light in the same laser system, our Harmony Laser with Advanced Nd:YAG Technology combined with the powerful Q-Switch Laser allows for higher power and optimized patient comfort through proprietary IN-Motion technology.
In as few as one or two painless treatments, depending on the severity of the condition, laser therapy has proven extremely effective in the treatment of nail fungus. The affected nails will begin to show improvement between six months to one year as the nail bed grows fungi-free.
There is no “cure” for nail fungus, just as there is no cure for athlete's foot — individuals who are susceptible can contract these problems periodically. Our goal is to jump start and eliminate the fungus from the nail plate, and provide a clear path for post-care topical therapy that reduces the opportunity for fungus to re-penetrate and other proven methods to control the environment so fungus does not thrive on the skin and in the shoe.
What can you expect?
The treatment involves passing the laser beam over the infected nails and surrounding skin. Your technician will
repeat this several times until enough energy has reached the nail bed. Your nail will feel warm during the treatment.
A single treatment session takes approximately 30-45 minutes. Treatment times will vary, so please ask your technician for more information.
Number of Treatments
Most patients show improvement after one treatment. The required number of treatments will vary depending on how severely each digit is infected.

Most patients describe the procedure as being tolerable .
After the Procedure
Immediately following the procedure your nail may feel warm for a few minutes. The majority of patients can resume normal activities immediately.
