Dr. Thomas Bembynista has been in practice for 37 years. He is the former luminary podiatrist for Sciton ClearSense laser. During this time he spoke across the country and developed webinars for the treatment of nail fungus that are viewed across the world. He has used a number of lasers and the new Lunula non-thermal, pain free laser is cutting edge. Using it, patients see new clear nail growth in six months.
Nail fungus has been difficult to successfully treat. Until recently the only options were topical or oral medication, each with limited benefit and potential side effects, such as liver damage. However the new laser treatment has shown to be both safe and effective.
Current studies show benefit in 89% of nails. It does take a few months to start seeing healthy nail growth. The laser has received FDA clearance for treatment of nail fungus.
The Lunula Laser uses a revolutionary low-level laser therapy. Safe and effective, Lunula laser is the first and only non-thermal laser to receive FDA 510(k) market clearance. It poses none of the risks and harmful side effects of oral - antifungal medication and is painless, unlike other laser therapies.
The Lunula Laser® is the only laser that does these additional features besides eliminating the fungus growth.
You will need to remove all polish and lotions from the nail bed area the day before treatment. In addition, we may need to trim the nail before treatment, but we will take care of that if necessary.
There is no need to take time off work or activities. You can polish the nails or get a pedicure immediately after treatment. However, you will need to spray all of your shoes with an anti-fungal spray to reduce the possibility of re-infection.
The cost is $600 for one foot and $1000 for both.Treatment consists of 4 weekly treatments of 12minutes per foot. Follow up visits are at 90 days and 180 days after the last treatment.
