How many treatments will I need?
In many instances, the toenail fungus is gone with just one treatment. Your specialist will recommend aftercare procedures to reduce the chance of the infection recurring. If you practice good foot hygiene, you will easily be able to keep your toenails healthy and free from reinfection.
What is the recovery time?
There is no recovery time. You will be able to return to your normal activities immediately after treatment.
How long with the laser treatment take?
Your first toenail fungus laser treatment will last for around 20 to 30 minutes. The second and third appointments will take about 15 minutes and are usually spread one month apart.
Can toenail fungus recur?
It can, so it’s important to continue preventative aftercare to ward off another infection.
Can I polish my toenails after I have had treatment?
This is fine providing you use a nail polish that has antifungal properties. If this is not convenient, you should avoid polishing your nails for a week after treatment to prevent moisture from accumulating beneath the polish. A build-up of moisture could encourage the regrowth of fungus.
