{Nails Fungus Treatment at vivaMD Medical Spa & Weight Manageemnt}

Clinical research has shown that the LightPod Neo and LightPod Forte lasers are capable of effectively superheating the skin tissue beneath finger and toe nails, causing the coagulation of the soft tissue that is contaminated with fungal material. This can result in a significant cosmetic enhancement for patients with nail fungus.

vivaMD Medical Spa & Weight Management uses LightPod Neo by Aerolase in the treatment of nail fungus. In order to superheat and coagulate the soft tissue beneath a finger or toe nail and particularly to reach the depth of the nail matrix, it is necessary to use a powerful, deep-heating laser modality within a tolerable pulse duration. Aerolase offers the unique combination with its LightPod Neo and LightPod Forte lasers, which deliver laser energy at the 1064nm wavelength and at optimum submillisecond pulse duration. This type of laser is capable of penetrating through the nail and into the nail matrix, heating the tissue in the nail bed to maximize coagulation of soft tissue contaminated with fungus. The presence of pigment and water in such soft tissue structures, as well as hemoglobin in the vasculature supporting the nail bed, collectively represent the common chromophores that absorb 1064nm laser energy as part of the process of coagulating and destroying the targeted tissue structures. The treatment of nails with LightPod laser is fast and convenient – it takes approximately 5 to 15 seconds to cover a single nail with laser pulses. The same laser is also highly effective in treating warts, spider veins and other conditions of the foot and ankle.
