Laser irradiation will penetrate the infected nail plate and target causative pathogens on the nail bed. As a result, the fungal infection will be greatly alleviated and gradually eliminated.
The laser produces coherent light energy of sufficient strength and of a specific wavelength which when projected into tissue is differentially absorbed by the target material, producing heat and hence tissue destruction. Other tissue compensation is unaffected and so spared.
