Aerolase NeoClear is a short pulse, 1064 nanometer laser that penetrates deep underneath the nail plate to target and destroy fungal elements allowing normal healthy nail to grow.
The Aerolase laser is effective at treating finger and toenail fungus by superheating the tissue beneath the nail plate. This allows for effective eradication of fungus.
Aerolase is a virtually painless treatment. There is a warm sensation over the areas being treated with the laser. There is no numbing required.
After the skin is cleaned and sterilized, the laser energy is applied to the targeted areas. We usually recommend the treatment of all finger and/or toenails to target even subclinical microscopic disease. Depending on the size of the area(s) treated, treatment time may vary between 5-10 minutes.
Multiple treatments (4-6) spaced 2-3 weeks apart will yield the best results. However, each patient’s individual needs may vary, so we ask you to have an initial consultation prior to undergoing treatment.
There is no significant downtime associated with the treatment and you will be able to resume normal activities immediately following the treatment.
Several (4-8) treatments are required for optimal results.
There are no limitations post Aerolase treatment.
Patients who are experiencing finger or toenail fungus related issues are excellent candidates for the Aerolase treatment. This includes patients who have marked resistance to topicals and oral drugs that are targeted to treat these conditions.
