About the Noveon NaiLaser
The Noveon NaiLaser is a new laser system designed to safely and effectively treat toenail fungus by using light instead of heat. While most toenail fungus lasers use designs that can cause pain and may not kill the fungus, scientists have identified two laser wavelengths that are particularly effective at destroying fungus cells without producing high levels of heat. The Noveon NaiLaser uses both.
A computer program controls the operation of the Noveon NaiLaser. This increases treatment effectiveness and reduces the possibility of heat buildup. Instead of a handheld wand, the Noveon NaiLaser uses laser pathways connected to patient guards, treating up to four toes at a single time.
In 2010 physicians in 12 podiatric offices conducted a study of 199 toenail patients with a total of 687 infected toes. Patients were evaluated at 90-day intervals. At Day 180 (following treatment with the Noveon NaiLaser), 85% of the treated toenails showed clear linear nail improvement. At Day 270, 35% of these showed further improvement. Some patients have seen a ‘complete cure’. A higher percentage of patients attained a completely normal appearance, or ‘‘clinical cure’’ at day 270 than did at day 180. No patient participating in the study showed any adverse effects.

About the Cutera GenesisPlusTM Laser
Dr. Uro also uses the the GenesisPlus™ laser. By targeting the fungus, GenesisPlus™ gets to the source of the problem immediately. Tiny pulses of light from the GenesisPlus™ laser pass through the toenail to the fungus underneath. The fungus is irradiated without any damage to the surrounding nail or skin,
It generally takes 4 treatments using the GenesisPlus™ laser. Each treatment lasts from 10 minutes to 45 minutes depending on how many toes are treated. Most people feel a slight warming sensation during the procedure. No pain medication is needed and most people find the treatment very easy to tolerate.
