Nail fungus, also known as onychomycosis, is a common condition that causes the nails to become thick, brittle, and discolored. It is caused by a fungal infection that affects the nail bed and surrounding skin. Nail fungus is more common in toenails than in fingernails and is more likely to occur in people with weakened immune systems or certain underlying medical conditions.

One treatment option for nail fungus is laser treatment using a Nd:YAG laser. Nd:YAG (neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet) lasers are a type of laser that produces high-energy, short-pulsed laser beams that can target and destroy fungi and bacteria. The laser energy is absorbed by the pigment in the fungi, causing the fungi to break down and die.

Nd:YAG laser treatment for nail fungus is typically performed in a healthcare provider's office or a laser clinic. The procedure is relatively quick, taking anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour, depending on the number of affected nails. A local anesthetic may be applied to the skin to minimize any discomfort.

After the procedure, the affected nail may appear white or yellow, and there may be some mild discomfort or swelling. It is important to keep the area clean and dry, and to avoid tight-fitting shoes to prevent further infection. The treated nail will grow out over time, and a healthy nail will replace the infected nail.

Multiple laser treatments may be needed to achieve the desired results, and maintenance treatments may be required to prevent the fungus from returning. It is important to discuss the potential risks and benefits of Nd:YAG laser treatment for nail fungus with a healthcare provider before undergoing the procedure.

In conclusion, nail fungus is a common condition that causes the nails to become thick, brittle, and discolored. Nd:YAG laser treatment is a option for treating nail fungus, using high-energy, short-pulsed laser beams to target and destroy the fungi that cause the infection. The procedure is relatively quick and may require multiple treatments to achieve the desired results. It is important to discuss the potential risks and benefits of the procedure with a healthcare provider before undergoing treatment.

📢 Important Advisory for Patients Considering Cosmetic/Medical Procedures

Dear Valued Patients,

We believe in providing you with the best care and guidance as you consider cosmetic procedures to enhance your well-being. It is crucial for us to ensure that you are well-informed and understand the nuances of these procedures, including their limitations and potential risks. Please take a moment to read and absorb the following points:

No Guaranteed Outcomes: It is essential to comprehend that no medical treatment or surgery can be guaranteed to result in absolute benefits or complete recovery. We want to emphasize that there are no guarantees of being "cured" or achieving specific outcomes.

Informed Decision Making: Prior to undergoing any cosmetic procedure, we encourage you to educate yourself about the procedure's details, potential risks, and anticipated outcomes. This empowers you to make informed decisions aligned with your personal goals and expectations.

Risk Considerations: No procedure is entirely risk-free. All medical interventions, including cosmetic procedures, carry inherent risks. Understanding and accepting these risks is a vital part of your journey towards achieving your desired results.

Doctor's Skill and Competence: We assure you that our team possesses the necessary expertise and competence in their respective fields. We commit to applying our skills with reasonable care and competence to ensure your safety and well-being.

Timing and Emotional Well-being: Optimal results from cosmetic procedures can be influenced by emotional factors. We recommend considering the timing of your procedure, especially in relation to major life events such as relocation, job changes, bereavement, relationship changes, or the arrival of children. Emotional stability contributes positively to your overall experience.

Your health and satisfaction are our top priorities. By acknowledging these points, you are taking an active role in your journey towards self-enhancement. If you have any questions or concerns, our dedicated team is here to provide you with the guidance you need.

Thank you for trusting us with your care.

How many sessions do I require?

The healthier your skin/hair are when starting out, the easier it will take the treatment. The sessions must be spaced to allow adequate healing in between. Skin/Hair that are healthy enough to regenerate fairly quickly will be able to endure more sessions of a treatment in a shorter period of time.

While these aren’t the only factors involved, they are the most common. Don’t be surprised, however, if your doctor mentions another situation that could impact the length and/or number of sessions you may require. Every person is different, and your circumstances will be unique only to YOU.
