Nail Fungus Treatment Q & A

Active Future Solutions

What is nail fungus?

Nail fungus affects 36 million people worldwide, and your chances of getting a fungal infection increase as you age.

At Active Future Solutions, Dr. Nabity and his staff offer the world’s first cutting-edge FDA-approved Cynosure PinPointe™ FootLaser® to treat nail fungus. This laser is used in a quick, noninvasive, and painless procedure in order to improve the following:

  • Discolored nails
  • Brittle and thickened nails
  • The buildup of pieces of skin around and under the nail
  • White spots on the surface of the nail

This powerful treatment improves the look of your nails and keeps other issues at bay, such as chronic skin infections or the inability to wear shoes comfortably. Additionally, this treatment provides a fantastic alternative for patients who cannot take oral medications.

How does Cynosure PinPointe work?

Generally, there is no need for numbing cream with Cynosure PinPointe as the majority of patients do not experience any negative sensation.

During the procedure, Dr. Nabity uses the laser, which is a combination of wavelength and pulse structure, to treat the fungus. The laser passes through the toenail without any negative effects on the healthy tissue surrounding the fungus as the pathogens that caused the toenail fungus are targeted. After being absorbed, the pigment in the fungi heats and kills the fungus.

What can I expect after my nail fungus treatment?

Dr. Nabity and Tina perform the entire procedure in about 30 minutes. After the first treatment, you can expect a sustained improvement in the appearance of your nail. Due to the precise nature of the laser, there are no harmful side effects.

Due to the noninvasive nature of the treatment, no downtime is required, and you can return to your regular activities immediately. Although only one session is usually needed to obtain optimal results and kill the fungus, Dr. Nabity can evaluate your specific condition to make a proper recommendation.
