What is PinPointe FootLaser?

This laser treatment is FDA-cleared to eliminate onychomycosis, a fungal infection that affects the toenail and fingernails. This special laser is penetrates through the nail to target and kill the fungus, while leaving the nail and surrounding skin unaffected.

How effective is PinPointe Footlaser at treating toenail fungus?

Clinical studies have found that 70 percent of patients experienced long-term improvement of their toenail fungus after one treatment. Some studies have even found the efficacy of treatment to be as much as 88 percent. Your results will depend on the severity of your fungal infections.

Are there any side effects to this treatment?

This laser treatment is non-invasive, requires no anesthesia and is safe for both the nails and your skin. Furthermore, there are no risks or side effects involved in this treatment, which is particularly ideal for patients who experience unpleasant side effects with anti-fungal medications.

How long does this treatment take?

It will only take your White Plains podiatrist about 45 minutes to perform this in-office laser treatment.

Will my toenails be clear immediately after PinPointe Footlaser?

While this treatment will kill your current fungal infection, it will not automatically turn the nail clear. You will need to give the nail a few months to grow out after your treatment in order to visibly see a difference.

Does this treatment hurt?

A slight warming when the laser is directed at the infected nail should be the only sensation you experience.
