The Cutera Xeo laser works great for treating toenail fungal infections and is the only FDA-approved laser to treat toenail fungus. It eliminates fungus without the need for prescription medication and has no side effects, making it a fantastic alternative for curing fungal infections.
During the procedure, your physician will target the pathogens that are causing the toenail fungus. As the laser passes over the infected area, it kills the fungus that lives in and under the toenail without causing damage to the nail or surrounding skin. It does this by gently heating the skin under the infected nail bed.
Keep in mind that your toenail will not become instantly clear. You will have to wait for your nail to grow out in order to see results.
Most patients feel a warming sensation, while very few others feel a pinprick. The procedure is completely safe and most people feel no pain at all.
Most patients require 1-3 treatments to kill the toenail fungus completely.
