CoolTouch Laser Treatment

What is the CoolTouch laser treatment?

The CoolTouch system is a state-of-the-art platform that allows your dedicated podiatrist to target the most stubborn of fungal organisms using laser energy, rather than harsh (and sometimes ineffective) chemicals.

CoolTouch laser treatments kill pathogens that cause toenail fungus in a quick and painless treatment right in the office. No need to remove toenails or take medications.

How does the CoolTouch laser treatment work?

The CoolTouch laser platform sends beams of high-intensity, yet gentle, laser energy into your nails. As this laser energy penetrates nails, it destroys fungal invaders and stimulates new healthy nail growth.

Within a couple of weeks of your CoolTouch laser treatment at FootCare Specialists, Inc., you should notice that the bottom portion of your toenail closest to your cuticle is clearer. This is healthy nail growing in.

Over time, the discolored and misshapen part of your toenail starts to grow out as beautiful, clearer nails continue growing. Within about two to four months, depending on how quickly your toenails grow, you should find that your nails are completely restored.

What happens during a CoolTouch laser session?

CoolTouch laser treatments from FootCare Specialists, Inc. are so fast and comfortable, you can get them done right on your lunch break. After evaluating your toenails and having you slip on protective eyewear, Dr. Kaplan glides the handheld CoolTouch laser over your toenails.

With each burst of laser light, fungal organisms are destroyed without affecting healthy tissue nearby. Your entire CoolTouch fungal nail laser treatment takes just about 15 minutes. There’s no pain, and there’s no downtime necessary. 

How many CoolTouch laser treatments do I need?

In most cases, Dr. Kaplan can treat your toenail fungus in a single CoolTouch laser treatment. He may schedule you for a follow-up visit to ensure your CoolTouch treatment is working for you and to determine if you may need additional sessions.

If you have more stubborn toenail fungus, you could need two or three CoolTouch sessions.
