What's Q-Clear And How Does It Work?

Suffering from a chronic toenail fungal infection? Find out how Q-Clear laser treatment can help!

While nail fungus is a fairly common problem it can certainly cause some pretty unpleasant symptoms. A fungal infection can lead to toenail fungusthick, brittle and yellow nails. Besides the aesthetic issues that this problem can cause, if left untreated, a fungal infection can lead to further complications. If you’ve been trying at-home treatments without success then it’s time to find out from our South Burlington, VT podiatrist Dr. Michael Guerra how Q-Clear laser treatment could help.

What is Q-Clear?

This procedure uses a handheld laser that is directed at the infected nail and kills the fungus underneath. While there are other laser systems on the market that use heat to kill the fungus, these Q-switched lasers are faster and more efficient so you won’t experience discomfort. This laser is able to eliminate the fungus without affecting or damaging the health of nearby tissue and nail. It is one of the most effective ways to treat fungal infections.

How many sessions will I need to treat my fungal infection?

Most patients need 2-3 treatments to kill the fungus. It can take several months to see the results of the treatment. This is because it takes months for the nail to grow out clear. As the nail grows you will be able to see the results.

What are the benefits of choosing Q-Clear?

Besides the fast, painless way to treat your fungal infection it’s also more effective than over the counter treatments and medications. Plus Q-Clear is safe and not linked to any side effects or issues. There is no downtime and you can return to your normal activities the same day.
