Lunula Laser

Our podiatrists at Vargas Foot & Ankle Specialists provide advanced technology solutions like Lunula Laser Therapy in Sugar Land and Katy, TX, which can find the cause of your foot pain and help you to heal fast. As a result, 90% of our patients tell us they get relief from pain right from the first visit!

What Is Lunula Laser Therapy?

The Erchonia non-thermal Lunula Laser is an effective tool for treating onychomycosis (toenail fungus). Research proved the Lunula Laser significantly increased clear nails over six months. The Lunula Laser targets the fungus and stimulates new clear nail growth. This patented red and violet visionary laser delivers an innovative, multifaceted approach of low-level laser therapy in the form of two different wavelengths to the affected area. Likened unto the agnostic effect of a drug, the Lunula uses photonic energy to modulate cellular reactions that target the fungus without any adverse reactions to the nail bed, toe, or foot.

How Does Laser Therapy for Toenail Fungus Work & Feel?

When you come for once-a-month laser therapy, one of our podiatrists will aim an intense beam of light at your infected toenails. Then, they will slowly sweep the light over your toenails to effectively kill off the fungus that hides deep in the nail bed. The light passes through your toenails without causing any damage to the nails or the skin around them. Each session takes about 10 to 15 minutes. We will also recommend other products to make the toenail fungus treatment completely effective. Your nails will not get clear right away but clip off the old parts as they grow out. You will see a big difference within four to six months. Then, within a year, voilá! Look at those fungus-free feet!

Is Laser Therapy for Toenail Fungus Safe for Me?

Unlike some harsh medicines people take or apply for toenail fungus, laser therapy is safe and free from side effects. You may feel a warm or pin-prick sensation on your nail, but this goes away as soon as the laser therapy ends. Most people feel no pain at all.

If I Don't Treat My Toenail Fungus, What Might Happen?

If you don’t treat the fungus and it spreads, you could experience the following:
  • Green, yellow or white nails
  • Spots on the nails
  • Thick nails you cannot cut
  • Nails lose their shine
  • Nails get crumbly and weak
  • Pain
  • Smelly nails

MLS Laser Therapy

Vargas Foot & Ankle Specialists is thrilled to be able to offer our state-of-the-art MLS Robotic Laser Therapy in Sugar Land and Katy, TX. MLS Robotic Laser Therapy is a non-invasive, safe, and effective treatment that uses focused light to treat many foot and ankle conditions. This revolutionary treatment allows deeper penetration without heat, incisions, or adverse side effects. Since the FDA cleared it in 2009, MLS Robotic Laser Therapy has been helping patients by relieving pain, reducing inflammation, and promoting wound healing and soft tissue repair.

How Does MLS Robotic Laser Therapy Work?

The MLS Robotic Laser converts light into biochemical energy. When this energy enters your tissues, it improves blood supply and circulation and stimulates your body’s cells to repair themselves. The result is reduced edema (swelling) and a faster healing rate. Studies have shown that MLS Robotic Laser Therapy is equal to or more effective than other forms of physical therapy.

What Does MLS Robotic Laser Treatment Entail?

You won’t need drugs or invasive surgery with MLS Robotic Laser Therapy. During a session, we position the fully robotic laser eight inches above your skin, and the laser light penetrates through your skin into your body’s tissues to accelerate your body’s natural healing process. You will feel little to no sensation during this pain-free treatment. Some people even fall asleep during their treatment sessions. A laser treatment typically lasts about 10 to 15 minutes, depending on the size of the area needing treatment. We usually recommend that patients receive treatment two to three times per week, although this will vary based on your individual needs. The total number of visits for laser therapy will also vary, depending on the type and severity of your condition. Commonly, patients need between six and 12 visits, although some conditions, such as severe arthritis, undergo ongoing periodic care to control pain. For some patients, we may recommend combining MLS Robotic Laser Therapy with another form of therapy or treatment to maximize your results.

I cannot fault my experience here. It was my first time at a foot specialist. Dr Marcielo was delightful, proficient and talked me gently through the procedure. Melanie the nurse was equally kind and caring. They even called me the next day to check on me. First class!

Dr Vargas gave me back my health... my foot was very painful that i could barely walk and I couldn’t even drive. He recommended 8 laser treatments and orthotics and after the 3rd laser treatment I was able to drive. The orthotics he gave me are amazing!!! That is all I use in all my shoes now.
