Onychomycosis

Description - physicians:

Onychomycosis (nail fungus) is a fungal infection that can affect finger and toe nails. About 20 percent of the adult population get onychomycosis, and there is a huge and growing base of patients who need a definitive onychomycosis treatment.

The Ellipse treatment

Ellipse treatments offer clinically proven, safe and effective laser treatment of onychomycosis. With Ellipse Nd:YAG 1064 laser you can treat onychomycosis rapidly, effectively and with high patient comfort. Nd:YAG 1064 uses a "painting" technique to apply several shots per second, across the whole nail, cuticle and nail folds. 5 laser passes are applied per nail and a unique pass counter keeps track of each pass. A 4mm spot combined with use of a short sub-millisecond pulse and fast repetition rate make it possible to complete treatment of all 10 nails in only 10 minutes. The onychomycosis Nd:YAG laser treatment is pain-free. Ellipse's patented SoftCoolTM cooling system sends a continuous jet of cool air across the treatment area. This increases patient comfort, while still allowing the nail-bed to reach the desired temperature.

The exact mechanism of Ellipse nail fungus (onychomycosis) treatment is not totally known. Heating the fungus is one major factor, but introducing a sub-millisecond pulse adds a “photo-acoustic” effect to the treatment, weakening the cell structure of the fungus.

A series of flashes of infrared light is aimed across the whole nail, including the nail folds (the skin immediately surrounding the sides and base of the nail). This heats up and destroys the fungus that is present. To ensure complete coverage, the whole series of pulses is repeated four times, and the individual flashes overlap each other.

Advantages
The Ellipse onychomycosis treatment with Nd:YAG 1064 is more effective than topical solution and at least as effective as systemic antifungals, but without the long-term commitment, and especially without the risk of side effects associated with systemic drugs. The near pain-free treatment of 10 toes takes only 10 minutes.
