TOENAIL REJUVENATION

Nail Fungus

Nail fungus, also called onychomycosis, is a common condition estimated to affect up to 10% of the population worldwide. It can cause nails to become yellow or discoloured. As the infection advances, the nail can become thick, brittle and separate from the nail bed. It can also cause pain when wearing shoes or walking.

Cutera’s Genesis Plus is a new laser perfected for safely and effectively treating Onychomycosis (toe nail fungus). By treating the fungus directly, Genesis Plus gets to the source of the problem immediately.

FAQ

The number of sessions required varies per client and depends on a variety of factors, such as the amount of fungus present, the amount of time the fungus has been present, the distribution of the fungus.
Dermatophytes are the fungi most commonly responsible for causing this condition. They are specialized organisms that live off of keratin which is the main component of nails and skin. Everyone is at risk for infection because fungus is present everywhere in the environment.

You may suffer from nail fungus if you have one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Discolored nails
  • Yellow streaks under the nails
  • Distorted or thickened nails
  • Brittle, crumbly or ragged nails
  • Nails separated from the underlying skin
  • Buildup of debris (nail fragments, skin) under the nails
  • White spots or streaks on the nail surface
Nail infection is caused by contact with dermatophytes. Common sources of infection include swimming pools, public showers, gyms and nail spas. Tight fitting shoes and nail trauma can also lead to infection. Genetic susceptibility, poor health and increasing age are also factors that increase the risk of nail infection.
The GenesisPlus procedure involves passing the laser beam over the infected nails and surrounding skin. Your technician will repeat this several times until enough energy has reached the nail bed. Your nail will feel warm during the procedure.
