How does the laser work?
The laser light causes a temporary increase in clear nails. The laser light passes through the toenail without causing damage to the nail or the surrounding skin. At the time of the procedure, the toenail will not become instantly clear. It will take a period of time to grow out.

A consultation with your provider followed by the procedure, as well as follow-up visits as prescribed by your physician.
