Nail infections can be a complex problem that can start for a number of reasons including, family history, increasing age, poor health, nail trauma, climate (warm, moist), exposure to infected nails (sports/fitness and communal bathing areas), and tight shoes. In many cases it can interfere with wearing shoes and/or cause walking problems.

What causes nail infection?
Most nail infections are caused by dermatophytes which are fungi that include yeasts and molds. These fungi can live in the layer of dead skin around your nails, in the space under your nail, and in the nail itself.
What to expect?
This procedure on all of your nails will usually take less than 30 minutes. Most patients only feel warmth during the procedure. The laser sends invisible laser energy into and through the nail and/or surrounding skin that is absorbed by the pigment in the fungal organisms. When the laser light is absorbed it causes the pigment in the organisms to heat and this heat damages or kills the fungal organisms.
The amount of nail improvement you may experience is dependent upon your individual circumstances.
