Does laser treatment for fungal toenails hurt?
Laser treatment for toenail fungus is effective, safe, and generally painless. The equipment used in this advanced treatment is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which is responsible for ensuring safety of not only foot and drug products, but also all medical equipment. This means you can be assured it is a safe procedure.
Fortunately, it is also rather painless. While this fungal nail treatment does provide a slight warming sensation for some patients, the vast majority of individuals treated report no discomfort. As such, this is an ideal way of treating an embarrassing condition. Further, it only affects the fungal infection, leaving the nail and surrounding tissue quite safe.
This is performed as a “walk in, walk out” procedure that takes less than half an hour before you go right back to your normal activities.
