Fotona’s Clear steps Onychomycosis treatment is a revolutionary, patient friendly method for treating nail fungus. It is a simple and effective procedure that uses the power of Nd:YAG laser light to heat evenly effected nail and skin tissue, effective heating and killing parasitic fungi which have infected the patient nails.
Deep, pulse profile heating of the nail bed stimulates the killing of the fungus. The natural growth and immune processes of the body, are then able to restore the nail.
Compared to traditional methods, the effects of laser light spread evenly throughout the tissue and are not subject to either the limits of chemical diffusion (topical) or the induction of hepatotoxic side effects (oral medication).
File down the nail. The nail will become deformed and overgrown, it may also thicken. Filling down the nail allows laser light to fully penetrate into the treatment site.
Application of Nd:YAG laser pulses in a circular patron covering the entire nail.
Target Nd:YAG laser pulses around the perimeters of the nail bed and around the finger or toe, offen fungus has worked its way beyond the nail bed and needs to be eliminated in all the tissue surrounding the nail.
The clear steps treatment I usually performed four times, at one week interval. All of the nails should be treated each time laser light can also effectively treat fungus which has infected skin tissue.
