Fungus Toenail Laser Comes to UFAI

The Q-Clear Fungus Nail Laser System

University Foot and Ankle Institute is proud to announce the addition of a Q-clear fungus nail laser to our practice locations.  The nail lasers will be located at all locations and can be used to treat from the most simple to the most complicated fungus nail cases.  The treatment to cure toenail fungal infections is done in office and is painless.  The procedure takes from about 20 minutes to 45 minutes depending on the number of nails involved and the amount of damage to the nails.

Our Fungal Nail Laser Advantage

The Q-clear laser is considered the state of the art laser for fungal nail care and has multiple wavelengths for different nail needs.  Unlike first generation nail lasers that did not have multiple wavelengths, the new Q-clear laser allows for adjustments to the amount of depth and heat created and can be customized to the patient’s needs.

Advances Fungus Nail Laser Care

With this addition to our practices, we hope that we can continue to provide state of the art care to our patients with integrity and kindness.  Although the fungus nail laser is not covered through insurance, we have placed our pricing on a very competitive rate.  Unlike other locations, we will be setting pricing by the number of damaged nails and wether one or two feet need treatment.  We also have added a fungus nail lacquer and fungus foot cream called PediMD to our treatment regimen that assists in both treating the fungus and helps prevent the fungus from returning after the nail grows out.

For more information or to schedule an appointment please call 877-989-9110.
The fungus nail laser is available in all nine of our offices including Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, Sherman Oaks, Valencia, Manhattan Beach, Torrance, West Hills, Thousand Oaks and Santa Barbara areas.

    The therapists are very knowledgeable. It was nice to see how they all helped out where needed. If someone started something, but was busy when a treatment ended, then someone else would finish up. A nice team effort.

    Dr. Gary was terrific and numbed my toe before he did the procedure. It was absolute pleasure, with minimal pain and anxiety.
