How it Works

The GoLaser™ kills fungi with laser light. The light is able to penetrate the infected nail without damaging either the nail itself or surrounding healthy skin.

The Procedure

The GoLaser™ procedure is done in a doctor’s office and takes only about 30 minutes. Some doctors file the surface of the infected nail (a process known medically as debridement) beforehand to enhance the laser’s penetration. During the laser treatment itself, you’ll feel a warming sensation and some mild pinpricks as the light penetrates your nails. Your doctor will probably make two passes with the laser over your infected nails and one pass over your uninfected nails. The procedure produces no known side effects. You can return to your regular activities immediately. You can even apply polish to your nails, if you wish (although you must remove any polish before treatment). Most people require only one treatment session, but more may be needed if your nails are in particularly bad shape or if they become re-infected.
