Frequently Asked Questions

Below is a list of some questions we get asked a lot and we hope you find it helpful. If you have a question about toenail fungus or the laser treatment that is not answered below, please give our friendly staff a call and we will be happy to answer any questions you have.

How does the Laser work?

The laser is a specially designed, medical device that shines a laser/light beam through your toenail and vaporizes the pathogens embedded in your nail bed and nail plate that cause toenail fungus.

Is the Laser treatment painful?

The laser light beam does not harm the nail or surrounding skin. While some patients may experience mild discomfort from the heat the laser generates, usually the treatment is painless, and there is never a need for anesthesia.

How long does the treatment take?

On average, our appointments last less than an hour and the majority of our patients require only 1-2 treatments. Whether you have one nail with fungus or more, we carefully treat all ten toenails to ensure that any pathogens are vaporized. We are committed to providing the best quality laser treatment available to every one of our patients.

Does it really work?

Results are showing most treated patients show significant improvement and in many cases, fungal nails are completely clear. Beautiful toenails can be a reality for you!

How soon will I see improvement?

A big toenail will replace itself in 12 to 18 months and a lesser toenail will do so in 9 to 12 months. Healthy new growth will be visible in 4 to 5 months. The laser treatment will not cause your toenails to discolor or fall off.

Is this treatment safe?

All of the patients we have treated there have been NO adverse reactions, injuries, disabilities or known side effects associated with laser treatment. As you may know, oral medication available today for treating toenail fungus carries with it possible serious health risks (commonly the liver and kidneys). The laser treatment has no known side effects. We only use laser technologies that have been cleared by the FDA specifically to treat onychomycosis (toenail fungus).

Can I walk after the treatment?

Yes - the treatment does not harm you in any way. You will be able to put on your shoes and walk out of the office, just as well as you walked in. You can wear shoes and pedicures are not prohibited after laser treatment, although use of antifungal nailpolish is recommened.

Isn’t Laser treatment expensive?

Laser treatment is considered aesthetic and therefore is not covered by insurance plans; however treatment is affordable. The cost for many patients is LESS than expensive prescription medications they have tried in the past, often without success. We offer several payment options and our staff will be happy to answer any questions you have.

Why haven't I heard about this before?

This is NEW laser technology and has only recently become available to the public. New England Foot & Ankle is excited to be the first Podiatric practice to offer this FDA approved treatment in the Merrimack Valley!
