Pin Pointe Foot Laser

Introducing a new laser procedure that kills the pathogens that cause toenail fungus!

A new painless procedure is now available for the treatment of fungal (mycotic) nails. This breakthrough technology was introduced at the American Podiatric Medical Association annual conference in Hawaii this past summer ('08) and is now practiced in Houston. It is known as the inpulse pinpoint laser treatment.

  • This new patented laser toenail fungus treatment technology kills the pathogens that cause toenail fungus (Onychomycosis)
  • The gentle laser light works through the nail
  • No side effects on the nail
  • Does not harm the nail or skin
  • Painless-no anesthesia needed
  • Usually only one treatment required
  • Shoes and nail polish can be worn immediately after treatment
How does the laser work?

This patented laser is specially designed to shine through your toenail and destroy the specific pathogens embedded in and under your nail causing the infection. We have successfully treated the nail infection problems of several patients at our clinic in Houston. The FootLaser operates in the very tight spectrum of near infrared light on your toe. Unlike CO2 lasers of the past, this laser safely destroys the fungi, molds and bacteria that often cause onychomycosis.

Is this laser painful?

The gentle laser light beam has no effect on healthy tissue. There is no discomfort associated with the treatment during or after. This treatment does not harm or affect your activity in any way.

Does it really work?

A lot of patients in Houston are opting for the toenail fungus treatment because of its high success ratio. In the first clinical study, earlier this year, 88% of the treated patients grew out a normal looking nail after one treatment. After the one treatment, the nail plate should grow out normally in 6-12 months if there is a healthy nail bed. This result is comparable to the success rate for the oral pill, Lamisil, which you take for three or four months with some risk of side effects. Additional information can be found at

Is this treatment safe?

There are no age or health restrictions or limitations. In clinical studies there have been no adverse reactions, injuries, disabilities or known side effects. As you may know, the use of the medication available today for treatment of fungus toenails, carries with it possible systemic involvement (commonly the liver and kidney). This laser does not!
