How does Genesis Plus treat toenail fungus?
Genesis Plus is a Cutera laser that provides a safe and effective treatment for toenail fungus. The laser penetrates inside the nail where the fungus resides, killing it instantly. The laser right passes through the nail plate, killing the fungus with minimal pain and no damage to surrounding tissues.
What is toenail fungus, and what are the causes?
Toenail fungus is a fungal infection of the toenails. It can affect one or more of your toenails. Fungi typically form in warm, moist environments, such as those provided by shoes and socks.
While there are multiple classifications of toenail fungus, your toenail(s) may be infected if they are dark, brittle, thickened, or misshapen. As the fungus progresses, it can lead to further discoloration, crumbling, or thickening of the nails. In some cases, infected toenails may separate from the nail bed.
How long does the procedure take?
Typically the procedure takes 10-15 minutes. The discomfort is minimal. Many patients will describe the feeling of warmth from the heat generated by the laser. There is no downtime.
How many treatments will I need?
Typically, 3 treatments are required, 1-2 months apart.
When will I see results?
As the new nail grows in, it will show signs of clearing from the bottom of the nail as it grows. This typically takes 6-12 months, depending on how fast an individual’s nails grow.*
