The PinPointe FootLaser has revolutionised the way in which toe nail fungus is treated, providing a state-of-the-art treatment that is both safe and effective.
The laser utilises patented laser technology to safely destroy the pathogens causing the fungus. The procedure is painless for the patient, with the gentle laser light working through the plate of the nail. There are no side effects associated with the PinPointe Foot Laser, and it does not cause damage to the skin or nails. As no pain is experienced, anaesthesia is not required. The procedure is highly effective in ridding toe nail fungus, and as a result, only one treatment is usually needed.
A 12-month multi-site study undertaken in the UK and USA demonstrated that the treatment helps to reduce lesion size in patients suffering from Onycomycosis (otherwise known as toe nail fungus). The study focused on 458 great toes from 265 patients. Each received the treatment, and 72% experienced significant improvement. The statistics and results from these tests show that the efficacy of the procedure is highly significant. The PinPointe FootLaser is constantly being upgraded and improved, resulting in even high rates of effectiveness.
The first step is to take photos of your toe nails. After this, we thin them down, allowing the laser to easily penetrate the plate of the nail. All ten toe nails are then treated with the PinPoint FootLaser. Treating even the unaffected nails ensures that cross-infection will be kept to a minimum.
While the procedure is relatively painless, you might experience a slight warming sensation and a small pin prick.
No. After treatment with the PinPointe FootLaser, you’ll be able to walk out of the clinic with no adverse effects.
The entire procedure takes approximately half an hour.
Yes, it is possible for the fungus to return, as fungus naturally exists everywhere in our environment. However, our skilled podiatrists can recommend effective techniques to help prevent a recurrence.
The PinPoint FootLaser was developed by a number of leading scientists and medical professionals across a period of 20 years. The procedure has been used within America since 2007.
