A review of nail fungal infection laser treatment
Lasers have been used for treating all sort of problems from hair loss and corrective eye surgery to the eradication of toenail fungus. Most podiatrists (doctors that specialise on foot and ankle problems) readily recommend laser treatment against toenail fungus, and for good reasons.
Unlike antifungal medications which are often ineffective against moderate to severe cases of toenail fungus, a laser treatment is guaranteed to work and more convenient. However, at an average cost of $500 to $1200 per session, it does not come cheap. Moreover, laser treatment for toenail fungus is not covered by insurance as most policies categorise it as a “cosmetic” procedure.
Is it for you?
Given the figures mentioned above, you might be wondering – is laser nail fungus treatment worth it? For you to arrive at an answer, it would be best to understand how toenail fungus removal works.
Now it is not that complicated; a specialised laser energy is directed to the afflicted toenail and seeps deep into the nail bed where the fungal infection thrives. Hence unlike oral or topical antifungal treatment, a laser-based approach targets the problem right at its source and patients can expect their nails to get back to normal after one to three sessions depending on the severity of the problem.
