Toe Nail Fungus FAQs

Q: How does the laser toenail fungus treatment work?

A: The nail fungus laser treatment is safe and effective. This in-office treatment is pain free with no harmful side effects, and typically takes only about 30-45 minutes to complete. Standing out as a new alternative for nail fungus removal, laser treatments help to eradicate onychomycosis, or nail fungus in as little as one visit.

Q: What exactly happens during treatment?

A: The laser wavelength is absorbed through the nail, and kills the underlying fungus by exposing it to heat and light. Once the fungus is destroyed in both the nail and nail bed, the tissue is revitalized to encourage new, clear, and healthy nail growth.

Q: Is the nail fungus laser treatment procedure painful?

A: Most patients feel no pain. Some may feel a warming sensation. An isolated few may feel a slight pinprick.

Q: How long does the procedure take?

A: A complete treatment typically takes about 30 to 45 minutes to perform, all without the harmful side effects of oral medications.

Q: Is there any downtime?

A: Absolutely not! This out-patient treatment is walk in, walk out.

Q: How soon can I see improvement to my toenails after the laser treatment?

A: You won’t notice anything immediately following treatment. However, the toenail will generally completely grow out and replace itself in the next 4 to 12 months. Most patients show healthy new growth to be visible within the first 1-3 months.

Q: What can I expect from the treatment?

A: Clinical studies show that in most cases, 80% of patients show substantial improvement, and some report being completely cleared of toenail fungus altogether. The majority of our patients see dramatic results and clearer nails with just one visit.  Some patients may need 1 or 2 additional treatments if their particular case is severe.  Our Doctor will assess your condition and give you all your treatment options at your initial visit.

Q: When is it safe to paint my nails following treatment?

A: You can apply polish immediately after the treatment. It is important that you remove all nail polish the day before your PinPointe™ treatment.

Q: How much does the laser treatment cost?

A:  Our Laser Toe Nail Fungus Treatments Start at Only $695. The cost for many patients is LESS than expensive prescription medications they have tried in the past, often without success. Dr. Zhitar also offers consultations to all new patients.

Q: What payment options do you offer?

A: We offer several payment options such as $99 monthly payments, Carecredit™, Cash, Debt, & Credit.

Q: Does my insurance cover this treatment?

A: We do not know of any insurance policies that cover this procedure due to it being categorized as a cosmetic treatment.

Q: Where is your clinic?

A: Our clinic is conveniently and centrally located in the heart of Virginia Beach but serves all of Hampton Roads with effective and affordable treatments for toe nail fungus
