What is Nail Fungus?
Nail fungus is a common condition that begins as a white or yellow spot under the tip of your fingernail or toenail. As the fungal infection goes deeper, nail fungus may cause your nail to discolor, thicken and crumble at the edge. It can affect several nails but usually not all of them.
In fact, clinical studies using this laser system have shown the highest rates of success and clearance than any other laser system currently on the market.
In a randomized study of almost 100 subjects over three to twelve months, 95% of subject cases observed “significant nail plate clearance”.

Why does laser treatment work for Nail Fungus?
Helena’s Med Spa uses a leading state-of-the-art Nd:YAG laser which is perfectly designed for treating toenail fungus. In 0.65msec, pulses of high powered laser energy passes through the nail (nail plate) to the nail bed and nail growth area, killing the fungus instantaneously.
The laser energy works to very quickly heat and kill the dermatophytes that make up toenail fungus. No visible change will be seen immediately, but as the nail grows out over 3-6 months, the client will begin to see a clear nail. The toenail in particular grows rather slowly, so for the full nail to grow out often takes 6-12 months.
Treated nails take time to clear; the results of laser treatment may take a few months to be fully noticeable.
How does the laser treatment feel like?
In most cases, clients may feel slight warming or pressure during the laser toenail fungus treatment procedure and with little pain. Also, as the laser light hits the nail plate, it may create a harmless “snapping” sound. Every client at our Spa has been able to complete the procedure easily without anesthesia or numbing agents.
Is it safe to paint my nails after Laser Nail Fungus Treatment?
It is important to remove all toenail polish before the laser treatment, but yes, you can paint your toenails immediately after the procedure.
