HOW DOES THE LASER WORK?
This patented laser is specially designed to shine through your toenail and destroy the specific pathogens embedded in and under your nail causing the infection. The FootLaser operates in the very tight spectrum of near infrared light. Unlike other lasers that are used for skin or pain treatments, the PinPointe™ FootLaser™ is designed and used for only one purpose; to safely destroy molds and bacteria that cause fungus nail infections (Onychomycosis).
IS THIS LASER PAINFUL?
The gentle laser light beam has no effect on healthy tissue. There is no pain but some patients may experience temporary warmth in the nail during treatment. This treatment does not harm or affect your activity in any way.
DOES IT REALLY WORK?
The PinPointe™ FootLaser™ is the only laser approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of nail fungus. In the latest clinical study 81% of all patients treated sustained a clear nail improvement at 12 months after a single treatment. After the one 30-minute treatment, the nail plate should grow out clear in 8-12 months if there is a healthy nail bed. This result is better than the results reported for the oral pill, Lamisil, which you take for three months with some risk of side effects. We were the first clinic in the country to start treating patients with the revolutionary PinPointe™ FootLaser™ after the first clinical trials were completed in 2008. During this time, we have treated thousands of patients with successful results.
IS THIS TREATMENT SAFE?
There are no age or health restrictions or limitations. In clinical studies there have been no adverse reactions, injuries, disabilities or known side effects. As you may know, the oral medications now used to treat toenails must be taken daily for months and carry with them some risk of systemic involvement or side effects that can affect the liver, kidneys, and skin. This laser does not! Some lasers need to be cooled with a spray because of the heat buildup or they are so low powered, they do not kill fungus. This laser is safe and effective!
DOES MY INSURANCE PAY FOR THIS?
Because this treatment is considered aesthetic, health insurance plans do not cover this treatment. We accept major credit cards and personal checks or you may use your Flexible Spending Account from work. We also offer payment plans for 6 to 18 months through Care Credit. Application and information can be found at www.carecredit.com.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
The Laser treatment fee ranges from $650 to $995 depending of the severity of the infection. The consultation with the doctor to see if you are a candidate for the treatment is free. The treatment fee also includes any necessary nail preparation, post treatment counseling and a follow up visit to check your results.
The best results occur when all the nails are treated, including the ones that look normal. This creates an environment free of nail fungus and reduces the chance of reinfection.
As one of the leading providers in the country, we are so confident that we can cure your toenail fungus that we guarantee a significant improvement with just one treatment, or we will do a second treatment for Free
THE NEAT FEET GUARANTEE: Within 3 months of your initial treatment (the doctor) we will evaluate the results from your initial treatment. If there isn't significant improvement we will do a second treatment for FREE.
