Skin Rejuvenation Clinic at Edina has launched the advanced ClearToe laser service, which complement its dedicated line of services. This is a unique nail fungus treatment offered at the clinic.
Edina-based Skin Rejuvenation’s new treatment can now eradicate the fungus occurring in toenail and fingernail. As a product of Sciton, ClearToe is a new, innovative technology that can prevent the growth of nail fungus. This nail fungus known as onychomychosis causes severe pain and the infected nails can become permanently damaged. Other serious infections are also associated with this fungus.
Till now, this onychomychosis toenail fungus is being treated by using topical solutions or oral medication. These solutions are expensive, besides being ineffective. The oral medications can cause side effects that lead to moderate to severe liver damage.
The ClearToe laser treatment procedure involves delivery of laser energy on the nails where the fungus thrives. The laser zaps away the fungus followed by vaporization, without damaging the nail or the skin surrounding the nail. This treatment requires no downtime and is convenient. After the treatment, new nails begin to grow, replacing the infected and damaged ones. This nail regeneration process can be observed within a period of 6 to 12 months.
ClearToe treatment ensures positive outcome to patients with mild to moderate nail fungus in a single shot itself, while patients with complex fungus infections will have to get more than one service for effective results. According to Efficacy studies, this laser-based nail fungus treatment therapy is effective for over 80% of patients who underwent the process.
