How many times have you tried to get rid of stubborn fungus nails? Do you find yourself saying, “I have tried everything and I can’t get rid of these ugly nails”? I can’t tell you the hundreds of times I have heard that statement throughout the past 45 years I have been in practice.
Until five years ago, there were next to no answers. In 2009 Orlando Foot and Ankle Clinics began using a revolutionary new technology to treat nail fungus. This new technology was a laser and the results were quite good. As the years pass, technology has enabled us to continue to upgrade, and we are now on our third laser device. Our latest laser, the Q-Clear, has a 95% success rate (as defined by the FDA), is FDA approved, and is painless.
The procedure is quick and easy. It takes about 20 minutes and there are no restrictions or limitations afterwards. As a matter of fact, some of my female patients go for a pedicure immediately after the treatment. There are no contraindications and no side effects.
We follow up with six month checkups until the new healthy nail is completely grown in, about 18 months to 2 years. Should a second treatment be necessary, which is rarely the case, it is provided as part of the follow up.
In the five years that I have been using this technology, the results have been very gratifying, and as we have upgraded the results have improved. The Q-Clear gives us fantastic results with no discomfort and most importantly my patients love it. I believe the 95% success speaks for itself, but not as loudly as the smiles on my patients faces. The Q-Clear laser also works well removing superficial spider veins, and tattoos. We offer this treatment plan at five of our 17 locations in the Metro Orlando area.
