Our practice uses the Alma Harmony Elite laser for the treatment of toenail fungus. This state-of-the-art laser uses two different wavelengths of light to treat fungal nail infections. The laser light is transmitted through the nail plate to the nail bed and absorbed by the pigmented fungus responsible for the toenail infection. The first wavelength of light causes the fungas to decapsulate and mechanically breaks down its protective outer barrier making it more susceptible to the second wavelength of amplified light. The second wavelength of light than causes thermal deactivation of the fungus. This allows the nail to grow out over time with a more normal coloration and thickness and assists in the restoration process. The result: healthy looking nails without the exposure to potentially harmful systemic antifungal pills.
The Alma Laser boasts some important advantages:
- Fast and easy to use
- Non toxic
- No systemic blood monitoring needed
- Eliminates the need to take potentially harmful antifungal pills
- Safe and effective
