This new patented laser technology kills the pathogens that cause toenail fungus (Onychomycosis)
The gentle laser light works through the nail.
A fungus infection of the toenail, also known as onychomycosis, is one of the most common dermatologic disorders affecting the foot. Whereas ringworm is a dermatophyte fungal infection of the skin, onychomycosis is a dermatophyte fungus infection of the nail.

Patients complain that toenail fungus is ugly and embarrassing. This condition is often ignored because the infection can be present for years without causing any pain.
If ignored, the infection can spread to other toenails, the skin on the feet (ringworm or tinea pedis) and even the fingernails. Severe cases can impair one's ability to walk or lead to painful ingrown toenails. Secondary bacterial infections may occur on or around the toenail plate.
Prevention is key to avoiding fungal infection.
