it's pain free, it's safe and it actually works
Firstly the 405nm laser weakens the fungus by breaking down the cell walls, then the 635nm laser stimulates blood flow allowing your body's own immune system to overcome the fungus
key benefits of using cold laser

It’s worth you taking the time to understand all available options to treat your nail fungus.
Let’s walk you through them...
Of course you can always choose to ignore the problem, however if left untreated, nail fungus is likely to gradually spread from the tip of the nail to the root and make the nail thicker and thicker. It’s also likely to spread from one nail to another and from one foot to another

Oral toenail antifungal medicine, like Sporanox and Lamasil, have a good success rate but require a 3 or 6 months course of treatment and have some very real risks for blood cells, liver and kidney. The fact that blood tests are required every 4 to 6 weeks to monitor the presence of liver inflammation or other damage is indicative that this oral medication can be harmful
