Treatment of onychomycosis

Description of the procedure::

The Nd laser is used for the treatment of onychomycosis: YAG neodymium – jag laser from Fotona Spectro SP with a wavelength of 1064 nm. It is the deepest penetrating laser beam available on global markets, thanks to which it can destroy vessels with large diameter deeply hidden under the skin. At the same time, thanks to homogeneous penetration, it has a very wide spectrum of applications and minimizes the risk of tissue damage. The Fotona Spectro SP laser, thanks to the highest power and advanced safety systems, is the fastest and the safest laser on the market. This therapy is based on irradiation of the nail plate and tissues surrounding the laser beam. The treatment is simple, fast and successively removes the fungal infection without any side effects or complications. Laser treatment of fungus is a long-lasting therapy, which can last up to 12 months. In our activities, the most important is regularity.
