If you have fungus living in your toenails, Dr. Vargas can kill it painlessly, using a special beam of light.
When you come for once-a-month laser therapy, Podiatrist Dr. Vargas aims a very strong beam of light at your infected toenails. He slowly sweeps the light over them in order to effectively kill off the fungus that hides deep in the nail bed. The light passes through the toenails without causing any damage to the nails or the skin around it. Each session takes about 10 to 15 minutes. We will recommend a few other products as well, 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 4-6 months. Then, within a year, voilá! Look at those fungus-free feet!
Unlike some harsh medicines people take or apply for toenail fungus, laser therapy is completely 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.
