Frequently Asked Questions
How many treatments are necessary for laser nail fungus?
While significant results can be seen after only one treatment, most patients will need to undergo 3 – 4 treatments before we can be sure that the fungus has been completely eradicated. Each of these treatments will be scheduled 5 – 6 weeks apart in order to ensure the complete removal of all spores of fungi.
Will my insurance cover laser nail fungus treatment?
As this procedure is deemed to be for aesthetic purposes, it will likely not be covered by your insurance. Contact Health and Wellness of Carmel in Carmel, IN today for details regarding financing. We are here to help and offer a variety of payment options and often have new patient specials.
What causes fungus to grow under the nails?
Fungal organisms, or fungi, are at the root of the problem of fungal nail infections. When they are able to find a home under your fingernail or toenail, they begin to rapidly multiply and spread. Some other substances, including yeast and mold, can also cause infections under the nail.
What will happen if nail fungus is not properly treated?
The uninterrupted growth of a fungal nail infection will likely lead to difficulty walking, exercising, and even doing mundane tasks, such as typing. Additionally, the nails will begin to become more and more fragile as time goes on. For these reasons, it is important to begin to cure the nails through the use of laser nail fungus treatment at the earliest sign of a problem.
