Laser therapy works by sending ultra-fast laser pulses that target the infected nail. These pulses break down the fungal cells without causing damage to the surrounding tissue. Over time, the infected nail will grow out and make way for a healthy nail.
Traditional treatments for nail fungus include the use of antifungal creams, nail polishes and oral medications. These treatments can be effective, but they often require long-term use and sometimes have side effects. Moreover, they are not always effective.
Picosecond laser therapy is a modern approach that is becoming increasingly popular in the Netherlands and elsewhere. This laser treatment uses ultra-fast laser pulses to treat fungal nails.
