PinPointe FootLaser® Kills Toenail Fungus

Updated: Jun 3, 2018

Nail fungus (onychomycosis) is a chronic condition that impacts your quality of life and can lead to serious health problems, particularly for patients with diabetes or immune disorders.

Onychomycosis is difficult to treat because the infection is under and inside the nail, making it difficult for topical products to reach and destroy the infection. Products such as medicated nail polish or oral medications may cause side effects and serious drug interactions.

The PinPointe™ FootLaser® was developed by scientists and medical professionals over a 20-year period, with funding provided by the National Institutes of Health. Clinical studies began in November 2007 and the device received F.D.A. clearance in October of 2010 to be used as an effective treatment for fungal nails. Thousands of patients have been successfully cured of toenail fungus with the PinPointe™ FootLaser® .

PinPointe™ FootLaser® treatment is quick, painless and is done in the podiatrist’s office. Clinical trials show that the PinPointe™ FootLaser® is the most effective laser to kill nail fungus.

The PinPointe™ FootLaser® works by using laser light to penetrate the nail plate and kill the fungus, without injuring the surrounding skin. Best of all, the treatment is done in just 30 minutes as a walk in/ walk out procedure — and it’s completely painless!

Side effects with laser are extremely rare. Compared to oral medication , the PinPointe™ FootLaser® is much safer and much more effective. The Mayo Clinic reports oral medications like Lamisil and Sporanax “ may cause side effects ranging from skin rashes to liver damage.” Laser is the safer and more effective treatment for toenail fungus. And unlike oral medication, no blood-work tests are needed!

PinPointe™ FootLaser® is available at Ace Podiatry

PinPointe™ FootLaser® is now 100% FDA approved, and it's proven to be the most effective laser for killing toenail fungus. Ace podiatrists offer this treatment for a fraction of the cost other physicians charge. Appoint for a free consultation. Your toes will thank you.
