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.
Laser Treatment for Nail Fungus
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. Laser Nail Fungus treatment is performed once a week for four weeks and then four follow-up treatments approximately 90 days apart.

What are the benefits of utilizing multiple diode Lunula Laser in treatments of Nail fungus
- The 405 nm wavelength of the Lunula Laser provides anti-microbial, antibacterial and anti-fungal effects. This is critical to treatment results. Other lasers only work on the anti-microbial, antibacterial and anti-fungal effects.
- The Lunula Laser also uses a 635 nm wavelength for treating fungal nails. It offers a distinct advantage over the other lasers in that it also addresses and improves the blood flow to the tissue being treated and creates an immunologic function, which tends to prevent the recurrence of any fungus. This wavelength also induces tissue rejuvenation, increased vascularization, which enables the dual diode approach to accelerate the growth of new clear nail growth.
The Lunula Laser® is the only laser that does these additional features besides eliminating the fungus growth.
