More about fungus / fungal nails
Do you suffer from a fungal nail or fungal nail? Then our laser is the solution! A yellow or white discoloration, thickening and a brittle nail bed can be experienced as very disturbing and sometimes even painful.
The new revolutionary laser The Quanta System Duetto MT EVO ensures that the fungus is killed in no time. How does laser work exactly? The laser is a light source that operates at a specific wavelength (De Nd:YAG 1064 nm) that is absorbed by hemoglobin in the skin, heating the nail plate and killing the fungus. The affected part of the nail grows out and gives way to a healthy nail. Because the nails have to grow, the result will be visible after 3 to 6 months.
How many treatments are needed? The laser treatment must be repeated on average 4 times with a treatment frequency of 2 to 3 weeks.
The laser can be used for the following indications:
- Fungal Nails (Fungal Nails)
