The science behind the PinPointe FootLaser
PinPointe FootLaser is the first clinically-proven laser to provide improvement in clear nail growth. It sends invisible laser energy into and through the nail and/or surrounding skin that is absorbed by the pigment in the fungal organisms. When the laser light is absorbed it causes the pigment in the organisms to heat and this heat damages or kills the fungal organisms.
With the laser treatment there are no unpleasant side effects. Most patients only feel warmth during the treatment and it can be reduced or ended if the procedure becomes uncomfortable.
The laser treats the infection over the course of three recommended sessions, however the improvement in the nail’s appearance will take a bit longer as the damaged nail needs to grow out. Each patient’s experience is different and on-going treatment should be discussed with your Laser Nail Clinic technician. If necessary, they will recommend that you further consult your GP or podiatrist.
The PinPointe FootLaser is TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration, Australia) registered.
