If the toe nail is completely gone will this laser treatment still work. Does insurance cover this treatment?

Hanani V.  asked on  Apr 16, 2012

A:

Laser Toenail-fungus removal is usually not covered by insurance. However the initial consultation to meet with Dr. Ghohestani is. You can call us at 210-698-6777 and we will be happy to schedule your appointment. Without the toe nail we will not be able to perform the procedure. There are other options for removal of fungus that can be discussed with you at the time of your appointment.

Q:

What is the name of the laser used?

Jana M.  asked on  Apr 12, 2012

A:

Alma Q- switched 1064 with a KTP 532 nm tip, and a ND Yag 1064. Depending on the clinical presentation we may use both. Alma Lasers' innovative Q Switched 1064nm Nd:YAG laser with its KTP 532-nm tip creates micro-cavitations and acoustic shock waves on the surface of the nail plate which then get transmitted to the nail bed, causing mechanical damage in the irradiated fungal colony which may decapsulate the fungus spores. In addition, the embarrassing yellow and brown streaks that cover the nail are eliminated thanks to the green light of the Q-Switched KTP 532-nm, which is well absorbed by red and brown pigments of the infected nail microorganism. The Nd:YAG 1064nm laser module causes non-specific heat conduction on the entire nail, thermally deactivating the unwanted microorganism.

Q:

Will one laser treatment clear toe fungus under the nail, or will additonal treatments need to be purchased?

Beth F.  asked on  Apr 12, 2012

A:

It is difficult to answer your question without examining your toenails. It is possible you may need additional laser treatment. Typically treatment of onychomycosis is challenging because the infection is embedded within the nail and is difficult to reach by any topical medication. Therefore, sometimes an oral anti-fungal medication is necessary.

Q:

I have fungus on most of my toes and have battled it for years with no lasting results. I also have raging athletes foot on one of my feet and up the inside of my foot. I wanted to know if this treatment can be used on the skin as well as the toenails to get rid of athletes feet.

Ben T.  asked on  Apr 12, 2012

A:

This treatment can only be used for toe-nail fungus. However, our Dermatologist, Dr Ghohestani, can see you for a consultation of athletes foot. Please feel free to call us at 210-698-6777 if we can be of further assistance.
