Fotona ClearSteps Laser Treatment
The Best Nail Fungus Laser Treatment in Prince George, BC
ClearSteps is a revolutionary new procedure for treating onychomycosis or nail infection, which is a persistent fungal infection on the nail bed, matrix or plate. It is a non-invasive laser procedure, to treat the affected nail and skin. It is simple, quick, safe and effective.
How does ClearSteps work?
The treatment involves passing a laser beam over the infected nail and surrounding tissue, resulting in a photo-thermal heating effect that weakens and kills the fungi that cause the infection. A single treatment usually takes about 20-45 minutes to treat 10 nails. You may feel a heating sensation during the treatment, however you can leave immediately after the procedure and resume your daily routine. You could also experience some slight discolouration of the nail after the treatment.

Nail infection is caused by contact with infective fungal agents. Since these agents are present everywhere in our environment, everyone potentially is at risk for infection. Common sources for infection could include public showers, swimming pools, nail spas and gyms. Nail trauma and tight fitting shoes can also lead to infection.
