Nail fungus (Onychomycosis) is prevalent worldwide and up until now, has had very limited, ineffective, and undesirable treatment options. These options include topical antifungal creams, oral antifungals, or permanent removal of the nail. Many of the oral medications also have unwanted side effects eliminating them as an option for treatment.
Scition’s technology heats the nail and the nail bed with laser energy resulting in a decrease of nail fungus and temporary increase in the growth of clear nails. For optimal results, multiple laser treatments are required, and some home care regimen is recommended. This makes it an easy treatment to perform with no downtime. *FDA cleared for the temporary increase of clear nail in patients with onychomycosis. We cannot claim a permanent result as patients can always be re-exposed to fungus and have it come back.
