Is laser treatment for nail fungus painful?

No, laser treatment for nail fungus is not painful, though some people report a warming sensation in the toes during the procedure. Laser therapy employs a highly focused, intense light that passes painlessly through your hard nail tissue to the infected area underneath. The light destroys the microorganisms that are festering out of reach of normal topical medications. The healthy tissues in the nail bed and around the hard keratin remain unaffected. It does take a few months for the healthy tissue to regrow, but the procedure itself is over quickly and has no known side effects—painful or otherwise.

If you’re struggling with stubborn nail fungus, don’t let fear of discomfort keep you from seeking the treatment you need.
