Onychomycosis is a common infection of the nail, and it may affect approximately 6.5% to 8.7% of the North American population.   Visual description includes: yellowed, discolored, thickened and flakey nail / nail debris.    The fungus causes a breakdown of the keratin within your nail plate.   The byproduct is termed subungal debris which harbors both keratin and fungal elements.   The same fungus that is responsible for toenail fungus is also responsible for athletes feet aka tinea pedis.  An infected nail can act as a breeding ground for recurrent athlete's feet and mold.

Why the cool touch laser vs others?   The cool touch uses a 1320 nm beam, a much safer and cooler beam than the 1064 nm of the competition.    For additional safety and comfort, a cryogen spray is used when the nail is heated to the optimal treating temperature.    A large 10mm beam diameter, controlled depth provides a reproducible  safe procedure.    More in the FAQ .
