Four to six treatments, spaced 2-3 weeks apart, are generally needed to notice more dramatic results.

The laser delivers pulses of light energy into the vein causing the blood to coagulate and eventually destroying the vessel. Blood flow is then redirected to veins deeper below your skin’s surface, where it should be, and your body reabsorbs the dead vessel.

How long does it take to notice results?

Most people find the majority of their veins to show significant improvement within 2 to 6 weeks after treatment. However, especially for more severe conditions, your results may not be apparent for several months. Over time, it is also possible for new veins to appear, which could require additional treatment.

Toenail Fungus:

Toenail fungus causes an unsightly yellowing or whitening of the toenail and makes the toenail brittle, thick, and misshapen. Traditional medicine has relied on prescription medications to treat this condition. Oral medications have many side effects including liver damage, and topical treatments are less effective, so patients often choose to forgo treatment.

Now there is another option, and patients no longer have to feel self-conscious of their toes again. Laser Genesis is the perfect solution to this problem, and there are no side effects. Typically patients only need 2-3 treatments to eliminate the fungus, and many patients notice results after the first treatment.

What is nail fungus?

Nail fungus, also called onychomycosis, is a common condition estimated to affect up to 10% of the population. It causes nails to become yellow or discolored, and as the infection develops, it can cause the nail to become thick, brittle, and displaced. Some people experience pain when wearing shoes.

Where do nail infections come from?

Dermatophytes are the most common fungi responsible for nail fungus. Everyone is at risk for infection because fungus is present everywhere in the environment. Nail fungus usually begins after some trauma to the nail but can spread if left untreated. Tight fitting shoes, poor hygiene, and increasing age are also risk factors increasing the chance of developing nail fungus.

What are the symptoms of nail fungus?

You may suffer from nail fungus if you have one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Discolored nails
  • yellow or white streaks underneath the nail
  • distorted or ragged looking nails
  • nails displaced from the underlying skin
  • build up of debris underneath the nail

How does the procedure work?

Your provider will pass the beam over the infected nails and surrounding skin several times until enough energy has reached the nail bed to effectively kill the fungi. Your nail will feel warm during the procedure.

How long does each treatment take?

A single treatment sessions takes approximately 10-20 minutes for each set of nails. Treatment times can vary depending on the severity of the condition.

How many sessions will I need?

Most see noticeable results after just the first session. The recommended number of treatments will vary depending on the development of the fungus. At least one follow-up treatment is often recommended after 6-8 weeks to treat any remaining spores that may have bloomed.

How long until I notice the results?

The laser effectively kills the fungi. However, it takes an average of 6-12 months for the nail to grow out the infected area and look healthy again, depending on the size of the infection.

Does the procedure hurt?

Most clients report the procedure as very comfortable. On occasion, you may experience a warm, pinching sensation that resolves very quickly.

Is there any downtime after the procedure?

This is a noninvasive procedure and you should be able to resume normal activities immediately after treatment. Your toes may feel warm for a few minutes.
