What is PinPointe FootLaser treatment?

PinPointe FootLaser technology at MB Comprehensive Foot and Ankle Specialists uses minimally invasive laser energy to treat toenail fungal infections.

  • No downtime

Is PinPointe FootLaser treatment right for me?

To find out if you're a candidate for PinPointe FootLaser treatment at MB Comprehensive Foot and Ankle Specialists, your podiatrist discusses your medical history, reviews your symptoms, and examines your feet and toes. They might have a lab analyze debris scraped from under your toenails or test your nail clippings.

Signs and symptoms of toenail fungus include nails that are:

  • Distorted
  • Thickened
  • White
  • Yellow
  • Brown
  • Crumbly
  • Ragged
  • Brittle
  • Dark in color
  • Foul-smelling
  • Unsightly looking

Fungus may lurk in your fingernails, as well as your toenails. Treatments help stop fungus from spreading and can improve the appearance of your nails. 

What happens during laser treatment for toenail fungus?

During laser treatment, your podiatrist emits laser energy into your toenails while you relax in a comfortable chair. There’s no pain associated with the procedure, which often lasts about 20-60 minutes. You often need just one PinPointe FootLaser treatment to get rid of toenail fungus.

What happens after the procedure?

After PinPointe FootLaser treatment, there’s no downtime, so you can resume a normal routine immediately. Your toenails should look healthy and normal as they grow, and you can expect gradual improvements over time. In some cases, you may need a second treatment to achieve the most effective results. 

Things you can do to prevent future fungal infections include throwing away old shoes, especially athletic shoes, or bleaching the shoes in a washing machine. Additionally, you should wear sandals to avoid walking barefoot near community pools, showers, or locker rooms.
