Lunula Laser

If you have toenail fungus, there is a safe and effective method that your podiatrist can use to eradicate it. At Patel Podiatry Family Foot Care & Surgery, we’re proud to offer patients the opportunity to receive laser treatment with Lunula Laser. Treatment sessions are quick, easy, and painless!

What Is the Lunula Laser?

Invented by low-level laser company Erchonia, Lunula Laser destroys toenail fungus (also known as onychomycosis) and stimulates new nail growth. Approved by the FDA, it’s a convenient and non-invasive laser treatment that podiatrists are using as a solution to one of the most stubborn and frustrating foot issues that people of any age can develop upon coming into contact with fungal spores.

How Does It Work?

Using a patented laser that produces two specific wavelengths, Lunula Laser targets the entire nail complex—the nail plate, nail bed, and germinal/matrix complex. This innovative low-level therapy does not cause any damage to the surrounding skin. Lunula Laser’s website also notes that it “not only destroys the fungal pathogen, it also improves circulation and strengthens the body’s immune response.”

Does It Hurt?

Lunula Laser treatment does not hurt. It’s a painless solution that treats toenail fungus and the issues associated with an active infection, including unsightly toenails, discomfort, and even toenail loss. No downtime or recovery period is necessary. On average, treatment sessions last about 15 minutes. The type, duration, and extent of the fungal disease will determine how many treatments are needed for clearance. Upon examination, the Doctor will tailor a specific treatment schedule for every patient, as each fungal infection is unique and needs proper management.

What Conditions Does It Treat?

Lunula Laser treatment is specifically intended to address toenail fungus. By destroying the fungal organisms, the proprietary laser beams promote the overall health of your toenails. Once your toenail fungus infection is cleared, the risk of the infection spreading to other toes on your feet or being transmitted to other individuals will be greatly reduced.

How Effective Is It at Treating These Conditions?

According to Lunula Laser’s official website, a clinical study was conducted in the United States. Researchers concluded that the Lunula Laser “is an effective tool for increasing clear nail in toenails infected with onychomycosis.” While it may take a few months before you notice new nail growth, Lunula Laser’s high success rate should make you feel confident that you’ll see positive results.
