Atlanta Laser Toenail Fungus Treatment
Laser toenail fungus removal in Atlanta is a trusted, safe and effective solution for toenail fungus treatment. At Look Young Atlanta we use the most advanced laser light energy to target and eliminate the virus and bacteria that cause nail fungus infection (onychomycosis). A narrow beam of laser light energy will penetrate the nail and vaporize fungus in the nail bed without damaging other tissue. The laser nail fungus removal treatment generally takes about 5 minutes per finger or toe, it’s safe and you will only experience mild discomfort. Say goodbye to unwanted toenail fungus without the use of messy creams and sprays.
Signs of Toenail Fungus
- Examine your toenails or fingernails to determine if the nail is infected by looking to see if the nail plate has a thickened, yellow or cloudy appearance.
- Toenails can become rough and crumbly and even separate from the toenail bed.
- Some nail fungus infections do not cause pain, but other cases are extremely painful.
Look Young Atlanta Toenail Fungus Removal
After your laser toenail or fingernail fungus removal treatment, healthy new toenails will be visible as soon as 3 months after your treatment. Your nail’s natural growth cycle allows fingernails and toenails to completely replace themselves every 6 to 9 months. Once we get rid of the infection your hands or feet will breath a sigh of relief as they grow new healthy nails. After your treatment we recommend using an anti-fungal cream with L-arginine to speed up the healthy nail replacement. Also please bring an extra new pair of shoes to wear after the treatment, as it’s probable that the bacteria is present in your shoes. We also recommend using an anti-fungal powder in your shoes to kill any bacteria that’s present in your shoes.
Will My Nail Fungus Be Cured?
Actually the fungus lives in the environment, so we work to kill the pathogen that causes the fungus. Then we advise you to follow up with topical treatments to prevent nail fungus from re-entering the nail bed which would cause reoccurring nail fungal infections.

Laser Genesis is safe and effective for treatment of nails with onychomycosis/nail fungus.
