How Can a Laser Cure Nail Fungus?

Q-Clear-Laser-System
Nail fungus is a common condition that has plagued countless people for years. Because the fungus resides beneath the nail, it is very difficult to treat. Most treatment methods are effective in only a small percentage of cases. Recent advancements in the medical field, however, have led to powerful lasers that are actually capable of curing nail fungus with an astonishing 97% success rate.

Laser Cure Nail Fungus, Why?

The Q-Clear laser is the first of its kind and the only q-switched laser system that has been approved by the FDA specifically for the treatment of onychomycosis. In the past, treatments for the condition were often lengthy, expensive and, in the end, frustrating because they proved to be ineffective. The Q-Clear laser, however, can cure nail fungus quickly and easily at a price that is more affordable than other treatments. In addition, it is effective in just one treatment in the vast majority of cases, and patients typically feel very little to no discomfort during the procedure. Because the procedure is minimally invasive and does not require the use of any systemic medications, there is virtually no chance of complications or serious side effects.

Lasers possess the unique ability to quickly and effectively penetrate the nail plate to reach the site of the infection. Because they produce highly concentrated beams of intense heat, they can precisely target the fungus without causing any damage to the surrounding healthy tissue. This ensures that the patient experiences no pain during the procedure.

How the Q-Clear Laser Works

The Q-Clear device effectively works as two lasers in one. It is capable of producing a pure 1064nm wavelength or a combined 532nm/1064nm wavelength depending upon the type of tissue being treated. It can be used in either long pulse or q-switched configurations. When working to cure nail fungus, the Q-Clear laser is used in the q-switched configuration. While long pulse lasers usually produce a pulse with a duration of around one-tenth of a second, a q-switched laser can deliver the same amount of power in approximately nine billionths of a second. This creates a shock wave effect as opposed to the more painful, and generally less effective, thermal effect produced by long pulse lasers.

During the procedure, the Q-Clear device delivers short bursts of powerful laser energy directly to the fungus beneath the nail to destroy it. In most cases, only one session is needed to kill the infection, but it will take six months to one year for a new, healthy nail to grow in. During the procedure, the doctor moves a small hand pieces over the affected area in short passes. Because the bursts are so rapid, patients typically only feel mild warmth. The treatment only takes a few minutes, and there is no need for any downtime afterward. The Q-Clear laser is not associated with any side effects, and patients do not need to use any topical or systemic medication following the procedure. Because the procedure is safe and highly effective, it is one of the best ways to cure nail fungus.
