Frequently Asked Questions and Answers:
How does the procedure work?
The doctor will go over each of your nails with the laser light in a grid pattern. The laser light wavelength targets the fungus, causing the fungus to die due to heat damage. Since the laser light targets the fungus it will not hurt the nail or surrounding skin.
How many treatments will I need?
Most patients only need a one-time treatment, the doctor will discuss the post-treatment care with you to decrease your chances of reinfection. If a re-treatment is needed we offer them at a reduced cost.
Is the treatment painful?
No, treatment is painless but some patients experience a slight warming sensation over the nails while the procedure is performed.
Can I use insurance to pay for the treatment?
No, because insurance companies only cover oral medication since it’s the less expensive option for them. However, you may use your Flexible Spending Account or Health Savings Account if you have one.
How long will it take to see results?
It will vary depending on how fast your nails grow but on average it takes 6-9 months to see full results.
What should you do if you’re struggling with Toenail Fungus?
Toenail fungus treatments in Pittsburgh are may vary. If you have caught nail fungus, it can be easily treated using the FDA-approved PinPointe laser, which typically only takes one treatment. Other treatments like topical solutions and oral medication are not as effective. Topical solutions have a very low cure rate. This is because the solution does not penetrate all the way through the nail bed. This is because it can lead to liver toxicity. You would need to have consistent blood tests throughout the course of taking the medication.
