Happy after Laser TreatmentPre & Post Care:

Onychomycosis, a fungus under nails. Nails may thicken yellow or crack/crumble Contagious Factors for Nail Fungus: Having an injured nail, compromised immune system, elderly, diabetes, poor circulation, wearing tight shoes, not allowing feet to breathe, perspiring a great deal (especially hands & feet), suffer from other skin conditions such as; psoriasis, eczema or athlete’s foot, walking around barefoot in public showers, locker rooms and swimming pools etc.. A nail fungus & wart reduction treatment works by a specific frequency affecting cells responsible for infection. Thus, penetrating the nail and destroying fungus embedded in/ under the nail bed and plate. Treatment of ALL nails on appendage is recommended to eradicate fungus that has yet to manifest; thus helping prevent recurrence. Majority of our patients need 2 or 3 sessions; dependent upon length of time patient has had infection, severity in which nail is involved, and how well the Pre/Post instructions here are followed. It may be necessary to perform additional treatments to obtain the optimum results. Download the full Pre and Post Sheet Below…

Pre-Treatment:

If nails are thick we recommend visiting a Podiatrist such as BV Foot Clinic 724-375-1577 to have them sanded thinner before treatment; so the laser can penetrate and shut down fungus in nail bed (Copay may apply). Remove any traces of nail polish, powders on the foot, please clean feet, especially lint as it may burn.

toenail fungus nail clipping before treatment of laserPost Laser Treatment:

Disinfect anything your feet have touched before treatment (nail clippers/file, sheets etc.). You can use Spray that can kill fungus OR 10% bleach (90% water) solution for shower floors, etc. To prevent new fungal growth, Soak feet 10 minutes daily for 10 days after treatment. Use a mixture one part peroxide to three parts water OR straight Apple Cider vinegar – just enough to cover toes or fingers in a small basin. Allow nails to dry thoroughly before wearing socks/shoes. To disinfect shoes – Spray deep inside shoes w/ anti-fungal foot spray after every wearing, every pair and every time.

  • Dry shoes – If weather is nice, put them in sunlight, which helps kill fungal spores. Spray shoes again after they dry. Hint – May need to reevaluate how your shoes are stored.
  • Spray an anti-fungal or foot powder inside the shoes, socks and carpets.

We strongly recommend a topical anti-fungal used 2x a day until nail is grown out, such as Formula 3, Naillesse, Novanail, etc. If the area becomes or looks infected (honey colored crusting and oozing or spreading redness), if you experience an unusual discomfort or if any other complications develop – stop application and call us immediately. I understand the fungus may not be completely destroyed, that the nail may become re-infected, or there may be other types of infection present. The nail may continue to be discolored or not attach to the nail bed. This treatment will not change the shape, width or other deformity of the nail plate. In clinical studies there have been no adverse reactions, injuries, disabilities or known side effects on skin or soft tissue. As with any procedure there is some risk of side effects that are unknown. I understand it might take up to 9-12 months for a clearer nail to grow back. With this in mind, I am choosing to try noninvasive laser treatment for nail fungus. Body Beautiful Medical Laser Spa has seen excellent results on patients who have been consistent with their treatments and have followed their instructions. You have been treated with a highly specialized laser that has been deemed safe and effective by the FDA. It is important that you come back within 6-8 weeks for all of your scheduled treatments.
