Nail Fungus- ONYCHOMYCOSIS
Treat Onychomycosis (nail fungus) in 10 minutes and without pain by Nd: YAG
Onychomycosis (nail fungus) can affect finger or toe nails.
There is a huge and growing base of patients who need a definitive Onychomycosis treatment.
A treatment that is more effective than topical solutions and at least as effective as systemic
Antifungals, without the long-term commitment, and especially without the risk of side effects associated with systemic drugs.
Ellipse MultiFlex+ ND: YAG laser uses a “painting” technique to apply several shots per second, across the whole nail, cuticle and nail folds.
The Onychomycosis Nd:YAG laser treatment is pain free. Ellipse’s patented SoftCool® cooling system sends a continuous jet of cool air across the treatment area. This increases patient comfort, while still allowing the nail-bed to reach the desired temperature.
The exact mechanism of nail fungus (Onychomycosis) treatment is not totally known. Heating the fungus is one major factor, but introducing a sub-millisecond pulse adds a “photo-acoustic” effect to the treatment, weakening the cell structure of the fungus.
A series of flashes of infrared light is aimed across the whole nail, including the nail folds (the skin immediately surrounding the sides and base of the nail). This heats up and destroys the fungus that is present. To ensure complete coverage, the whole series of pulses is repeated four times, and the individual flashes overlap each other.
