Lunula Laser For Toenail Fungus

Are You Suffering and/or Embarrassed from Toenail Fungus?

Choose Laser Therapy from Hicksville Podiatry

You no longer need to feel embarrassed to wear open-toe shoes and sandals – or just go barefoot – because of toenail fungus or discoloration. Hicksville Podiatry is the area’s leader in restoring nails back to health, providing a natural and luminous appearance.

Class 2 laser therapy is one of the most safe and effective ways to treat toenail fungus (onychomycosis)! Laser therapy penetrates the nail bed and kills the fungus living underneath the nail – without pain and without any harmful side effects. When the colony of fungus under the nail is “attacked” by the laser, the elements that make it grow and thrive are destroyed. This allows your nail bed to begin growing new, healthy nail.  Nails that won’t give you feelings of discomfort or embarrassment! Laser therapy is a quick and easy treatment allowing patients to relax during the procedure.

Lunula Laser - Toenail Fungus Treatment

Hicksville Podiatry is the first office in Long Island to be able to offer the Lunula Laser which is the first and the only pain-free non-thermal FDA Cleared Laser for treating patients with toenail fungus. This new treatment is a proven non-invasive treatment for onychomycosis (fungal nails). There is no discomfort, downtime, or side effects associated with the laser. It uses low-level laser light to treat fungus and usually requires four 12 minutes sessions to the affected area. For severe fungal infection of toenails, we recommended 5 to 6 sessions to the affected area. This Lunula laser is safe, effective, pain-free, non-thermal treatment without side effects and no risks compared to many other heat-based lasers. Lunula Laser does not affect healthy tissue while working on infected fungal tissue and nails.

Advantages of Lunula Laser:

  • The only pain-free laser for toenail fungus
  • The only non-thermal FDA Cleared for treating toenail fungus
  • No risks or side effects associated with Lunula Laser
  • No discomfort or pain during the treatment

Please note Dr. Bhela will evaluate your toenail to determine your severity of toenail fungus and will recommends whether you need to try advanced topical antifungal cream first prior to trying Lunula Laser.
