Description of Laser Treatment
The laser treatment is performed in an outpatient clinic at your doctor’s office, a Medi-Spa, or at a day surgery center. Shoes and socks are removed; toes and nails are cleaned with alcohol.
The laser handpiece is placed directly onto the skin or nail, a few bursts of laser light are emitted to each nail area. A laser skin thermometer is used to determine the skin temperature during the procedure to optimize the laser treatment. Two or three treatments are necessary and are usually performed at an interval of 2 to 6 weeks apart. Patients may resume normal activities immediately following the procedure.
