Onychomycosis (nail fungus) can affect finger or toe nails.
There is a huge and growing base of patients who need a definitive onychomycosis treatment.
A treatment that is more effective than topical solutions 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.
Ellipse's Nd:YAG laser 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 4 mm spot combined with use of a short sub-milisecond pulse and fast repetition rate make it possible to complete treatment of all 10 nails in only 10 minutes.
The onychomycosis Nd:YAG laser reatment is painfree. Ellipse's patented SoftCool® 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.
