HyperBlue Laser for Fungal Toenails

A specially designed laser beams through the toenail and safely kills the organisms embedded in the nail bed that cause Onychomycosis - more commonly known as toenail fungus.

The procedure requires one or a small number of safe, quick treatments with little or no discomfort and is performed as an outpatient service with no anesthesia. The gentle laser light beam has no effect on healthy tissue and treats only the infected area of the toe. No drugs or topical ointments are used, eliminating the total-body side effects of traditional oral medications.

Clinical studies show that the laser kills toenail fungus and promotes clear nail growth with a single treatment in better than 80% of cases. The laser treatment is safe, effective, and most patients improve usually after their first treatment.

Our new Hyper Blue 1530 Laser will get rid of your Nail Fungus without the issues of oral medication or the time consuming topicals. Our Laser will get your nails back to their old glow in 3-4 treatments depending on the severity of the infection. The Laser uses wavelengths that will penetrate the nail and eliminate the destructive fungus that was causing the infection and leaves the nail revitalized as it grows out.
