Podiatric treatment is getting faster, easier, and safer with the help of non-invasive interventions
If you suffer from itchy, painful, or unsightly issues like toenail fungus, warts, or spider veins, laser technology could be the answer. Keep reading to learn more about some of our different types of laser therapy – and how they can treat your condition.
PinPointe (ND:YAG 1064) Laser treatments for toenail fungus
If you have a toenail fungus, you may be dealing with symptoms including itching, pain, odor, and significant discoloration of the toenail area – and a PinPointe Laser may be able to help. In only 3-4 treatments, the PinPointe laser system kills fungus that lives under the toenail without causing harm to surrounding tissues. It shoots tiny pulses of light through the nail, surrounding tissue, and the fungus underneath, heating the pigment in the fungus to kill or damage the fungal organism. Each procedure takes only around a half an hour and the technique has a demonstrated 88% success rate.
ND:YAG 1064 and AFT Laser treatment for spider veins
Spider veins are an uncomfortable cosmetic problem, even for younger patients. And it can be a difficult process for some doctors to remove spider veins due to the variation in depth, size, and location of the blood vessels. However, treatment with the ND:YAG 1064 laser and AFT (Advanced Fluorescence Technology) can selectively heat and collapse many spider veins without damaging surrounding tissue.
ND:YAG 1064 Laser treatment for warts
If you’re looking for a convenient way to remove warts on your feet or other areas of your body, a laser can also help. The ND:YAG 1064 wavelength is specifically targeted to cut off the blood supply to the wart, therefore destroying the underlying virus.
If you’re suffering from any of these foot conditions, these FDA-approved laser therapies might be able to address your symptoms. With a virtually painless treatment process and essentially no recovery time, it’s no surprise that laser therapies are becoming increasingly popular for both podiatric relief and cosmetic procedures.
