Laser for fungal infection


CUTERA GENESIS PLUS LASER SYSTEM

We are pleased to offer Genesis Plus laser at The Foot and Ankle Centre.

Genesis Plus is a new approach to addressing toenail fungus that puts patient safety and comfort first.

The system applies laser energy to the toe nail plate and surrounding tissue. The laser light gradually heats the fungus and promotes the growth of healthy clear nails.

This procedure requires no anesthetic and poses no risk of serious side effects. Treatment generally takes 20-30 minutes and patients are able to return to regular activity immediately following the procedure.
