In the past, toenail fungus was tricky to treat; patients were limited to oral medication, with its risk of side effects, or invasive surgery. Luckily, the team at Laser Toenail Clinic can harness the advanced infection-zapping technology of the FDA-cleared Cutera GenesisPlus laser. Powerful beams reduce or eliminate fungus in 20-minute treatments with little to no pain. Healthy nails soon begin to grow out and often appear fully clear within 9–12 months. Rather than relying on technicians or out-of-work super villains to wield the lasers, the clinic's owner and board-certified podiatrist, Dr. Lee, performs each and every treatment.
