Customer satisfaction is our top priority. All of the doctors on our team have undergone rigorous training before starting to treat patients with the PinPointe Laser. We offer free initial consultations, where we explain possible treatment options, so you can make an informed decision. In addition, our facilities are open 7 days a week to accommodate your schedule. We have branches in many major cities including Los Angeles, Newport Beach, San Diego, Orange County, San Jose, San Francisco, Sacramento, Pasadena, Canoga Park, Las Vegas, Dallas, Houston, Austin, San Antonio, Manhattan, Queens, Miami Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Jacksonville, Tampa, Chicago, Cleveland, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Boston, Virginia Beach and Scottsdale.
What to expect When You Visit Us
A consultation starts the treatment process. After establishing the diagnosis of nail fungus, the doctor will explain the symptoms, signs and progression, together with the treatment options. We would discuss your expectation of the treatment and likely results. Photographs are taken in order to monitor your results. The nails are thinned and tidied with a water based file to remove any thickening and fungal debris, and the laser treatment begins.
The complete consultation and laser treatment typically lasts 1 hour or less to treat both feet. This is ample time to allow us to discuss the treatment, prepare the nails and use the PinPointe Foot Laser on the nails. The laser beam is applied in sequence over the nails several times. Since the method of treatment relies on vaporizing the fungus with heat, the nails will get warm during treatment. Since the laser beam targets the fungus, the heat in the surrounding tissue will be very low. Our experienced doctors will communicate with you during the treatment to ensure the heat levels are appropriate.
After the laser nail fungus treatment, antifungal cream or spray is applied to the foot and preventive advice is given. Since fungal nail infections are caused by contact with fungi, care should be taken to improve levels of hygiene to prevent recurrence of the infection. We have several products we advise to assist in maintaining the long-term health of your feet. These include antifungal shoe sprays, athlete’s foot creams and antifungal nail polishes.
