Laser Treatment for Toenail Fungus  Frequently Asked Questions

Below is a list of some questions we get asked a lot and we hope you find it helpful. If you have a question about toenail fungus or the laser treatment that is not answered below, please give our friendly staff a call and we will be happy to answer any questions you have.

How does the Laser work?

The GenesisPlus laser is a specially designed, medical device that shines a laser/light beam through your toenail and vaporizes the pathogens embedded in your nail bed and nail plate that cause toenail fungus. You will notice results within 3-4 months, depending on how quickly your toenails grow.

Is the Laser treatment painful?

The laser light beam does not harm the nail or surrounding skin. While some patients may experience mild discomfort from the heat the laser generates, usually the treatment is painless, and there is never a need for anesthesia.

How long does the treatment take?

On average, our appointments last less than an hour.

Does it really work?

Results are showing most treated patients show significant improvement and in many cases, fungal nails are completely clear. Healthy toenails can be a reality for you! We are committed to providing the best quality laser treatment available to every one of our patients.

Will the fungus come back? 

After treatment, the doctor will recommend care techniques to reduce recurrence of the infection. There is a chance of reinfection because the fungus is present everywhere in the environment.

Is this treatment safe?

All of the patients we have treated there have been NO adverse reactions, injuries, disabilities or known side effects associated with laser treatment. As you may know, oral medication available today for treating toenail fungus carries with it possible serious health risks. The laser treatment has no known side effects. We only use laser technologies that have been cleared by the FDA specifically to treat onychomycosis (toenail fungus).

Can I walk after the treatment?

Yes - the treatment does not harm you in any way. You will be able to put on your shoes and walk out of the office. You can wear shoes and pedicures are not prohibited after laser treatment, although the use of antifungal nail polish is recommended.

Is Laser treatment Expensive

Laser treatments are affordable, especially when you factor in the cost and frustration of trying a myriad of failed home remedies or dealing with a health condition caused by untreated fungus!  

Cost Of Laser Treatment (per session):

  • One-Two Nails - $200. 
  • Three to Five Nails - $350
  • Six Nails or more - $550

Is Laser treatment covered by Insurance?

Laser treatment is not covered by insurance plans; however, treatment is affordable. The cost for many patients is LESS than expensive prescription medications they have tried in the past, often without success. We offer several payment options and our staff will be happy to answer any questions you have.

How do I pay for the treatment?

Credit cards, cash and money orders are all accepted. You may also use your Health Savings or Flexible Spending Account.
