About PinPointe Laser
What is it?
The PinPointe laser is designed to specifically treat nail fungus. It is an FDA-approved treatment in which the laser penetrates the nail to destroy the bacteria responsible for causing the fungal infection. Due to the technology of the Nd:YAG crystal laser, which is tuned to a frequency that targets only the fungus while leaving healthy cells untouched, the PinPointe laser is an extremely safe and effective treatment.
What to expect
Treatment with the PinPointe laser has been shown to be more effective than topical or oral medications in a variety of ways. One main difference is that, during treatment, the nail becomes clear immediately, although it does take time to grow back fully. The laser also does not result in side effects like allergic reactions. Treatment is quick, usually taking only around 30 minutes to perform, although it does depend on the severity of your fungus and the number of nails that require treatment. Additionally, the PinPointe laser is virtually painless; you may feel nothing more than a pinprick or a slight sensation of heat during the procedure. Finally, while you must remove nail polish before the procedure, you can reapply it immediately afterward.
After the procedure
A great benefit of the PinPointe laser is that there is no downtime. You can continue with your daily life immediately after the procedure has been performed. Typically, patients only require one session, but this ultimately depends on the severity of your condition and how many nails need treatment.
