Special Services

  • Laser Nails
    • Established in 2009, Laser Nails is the alternative to oral Lamisil tablets and topical antifungal ointments. This innovative laser treats the fungus that lives in and under the toenail. The laser light passes through the toenail without causing damage to the nail or the surrounding skin. At the time of the procedure, the toenail will not become instantly clear as it takes time to grow out.

      • PROVEN CLINICAL RESULTS

      • NO HARMFUL UV RADIATION

      WHAT TO EXPECT
      A consultation with your doctor, the procedure to be performed and follow up visits by your doctor.

      THE PROCEDURE
      Most people feel no pain. Some people feel a warming sensation and very few feel a pin prick. The procedure takes less than 30 minutes.

      RECOVERY
      There is no recovery period, you walk in and walk out.

      PAYMENT
      Credits cards, cash, money orders are all accepted.

      DOES THE FUNGUS COME BACK?
      It takes one treatment to treat the fungus, and typically the doctor recommends care techniques to reduce recurrence of the infection.  There is a chance of re-infection because fungus is present everywhere in the environment.

      PEDICURES AND POLISH
      You can apply polish immediately after the treatment. It is important to remove all nail polish and nail decorations the day before your treatment.

      INSURANCE
      This procedure is considered aesthetic and therefore health insurance plans DO NOT provide coverage.

      WHO DEVELOPED THE LASER PROCEDURE?
      Leading scientist and medical professionals working together for 20 years with funding provided by the National Institutes
