We offer the best laser technology currently on the the market. The Cutera Laser for Nail Fungus.

Xeo-Platformmodified v1.0 copy_thumb[1]
At 80 Watts of power this new laser is 20 times stronger than previous generation lasers for nail fungus which were rated at only 4 Watts.

The Cutera Laser is a safe and effective treatment for nail fungus.
It penetrates inside the nail where the nail fungus (dermatophytes) reside, killing the fungus instantly.

The laser light passes right through the tough nail plate killing the fungus with minimal pain and no damage to the surrounding tissues.

The laser procedure is done right in our office. Procedures usually take 20-30 minutes. They do NOT require any form of anesthesia and have minimal pain.

Most patients will feel just some heat generated by the laser. No pain medication is required after the procedure and you can go right back to work or any activity immediately after treatment.

In order to increase effectiveness, for one price, we offer three laser treatments for nail fungus. The second treatment is performed two months after the first, and the next treatment is performed two months later.

You will not see results right away. The laser will not change your existing nails. As the new nail grows in, it shows signs of clearing from the bottom of the nail as it grows. This usually takes 6-12 months depending on how fast individual’s nails grow.

In order to increase the chances of success, we combine our laser nail fungus treatment with the use of the best anti-fungal topical medication which is available for sale in our office. The use of topical anti-fungal medications also helps to prevent recurrence of the fungal infection.

Often, we use our specialized cooling spray nail grinder to reduce any thick nail tissue in order to increase penetration of the laser. This is usually a painless procedure.

Addendum to: Groupon discount for laser nail fungus treatment.

Today, I received notice from the New York State Podiatric Medical Association that discounting lasers for nail fungus on Groupon and other similar sites is actually illegal fee splitting in the eyes of New York State. (This information is true as of the date of this writing. Stay tuned to see if any legislation changes.)

It is in violation of both 6509(a) of the New York State Education Law and Section 29.1(b)(4) Title 8 of the Official Compilation of Codes, Rules and Regulations of the State of New York.

Apparently, the way Groupon is structured, they get a percentage of the fee for service paid to the physician. This is called ‘fee splitting’ and is illegal.

It is perfectly legal to pay for advertising, but when the physician splits the individual fees based on how much they receive it becomes illegal.

To my colleagues out there using Groupon, be careful. In addition to providing services that are destined to not work as I’ve outlined in my previous post (click “Groupon discount for laser nail fungus treatment”), you may be subject to discipline from the Office of Professional Misconduct.
