Nix Your Nail Fungus Once and For All With UltraWave Laser Technology

Nail fungus is no picnic. A yellow or white spot under the tip of a toenail or fingernail usually appears first. As the infection grows, it can cause broader discoloration, crumbling edges and thickening in the nail, and a foul odor. For some people, the condition becomes painful, and it can be very persistent.

We’re pleased to offer UltraWave Laser treatment at NeoSculpt Laser Vein & Cosmetic Center, which effectively does away with bothersome nail fungus, often for good. Call our office to schedule an appointment with Dr. Nikunj Patel or request a consultation on our website.

Nail fungus basics

Nail fungus, technically known as onychomycosis, is the same infection that causes athlete’s foot. It varies in that it affects your nails, rather than the skin between your toes. In some cases, lifestyle changes and medications—oral, creams, and polishes—help alleviate symptoms, but the process can take months and repeat infections are common. With proper care, laser therapy can bring about longer-lasting results without the need for medication.

How the UltraWave Laser works

During treatment, targeted light energy from the Ultrawave II Laser passes through your nail to do away with embedded fungus. It does all of this without damaging surrounding tissue, including your skin and other nails. Depending on the thickness of the affected nail, you may require only one treatment. More severe cases may require four sessions for optimal results. You won’t experience any pain during the laser treatment or need any downtime for recovery afterward. 

UltraWave laser results

Results from UltraWave laser treatment for nail fungus appear gradually, typically within three months. Your completely healthy nail will reveal itself a bit later, or within 6-9 months of your treatment.

Your nail fungus may return down the line, but you can take steps to improve care and hygiene to keep your results going long-term and prevent more infections. UltraWave is often effective for long-term treatment of nail fungus than oral or topical antifungal medication. Many of our patients find that laser therapy helps put a stop to fungal infections for good.

Maintaining your results

To prevent repeat nail fungus infections, follow Dr. Patel’s instructions after your UltraWave laser treatment. Depending on your lifestyle habits and symptoms, he may recommend:
