Onychomycosis Fotona’s onychomycosis (fungal infection of nails) treatment is a safe, productive and painless therapy avoids the potential side effects and prolonged course of topical or oral drug treatments.
Deep, pulse-profile heating of the nail bed stimulates the killing of parasitic fungus. The ClearSteps™ treatment is usually performed four times, at one week intervals.
ClearSteps™ is Performed in 3 Simple Steps:
Step 1: During onychomycosis the nail will become deformed and overgrown, it may also thicken. Filing down the nail allows laser light to fully penetrate into the treatment site.
Step 2: Overlap the beam so that the nail is fully covered.
Step 3: Target laser pulses around the perimeter of the nail bed and around the finger or toe. Often parasitic fungus has worked its way beyond the nail bed and needs to be eliminated in all the tissue surrounding the nail to prevent recurrence.
