What Is Toe Nail Fungus?
Toenail fungus is fungal infection in one or more of your nails. An infection with nail fungus may begin as a white or yellow spot under the tip of your fingernail or toenail. As the nail fungus spreads deeper into your nail and may cause your nail to discolor, thicken and develop crumbling edges – an unsightly and potentially painful problem.
You may suffer from Onychomycosis more commonly called toe nail fungus. If you have one or more of the following symptoms:
- Thickened nail
- Brittle, crumbly or ragged nail
- Distorted in shape or separated
- Dull, with no luster or shine
- Dark color caused by debris building up under nail

What is the Genesisplus by Cutera® and why this is your best option?
A renowned laser perfected for safely and effectively treating and removing toe nail fungus and warts. For infected toe nails, the laser targets the fungus directly to the source of the problem. Exactly how this happens is by use of a laser emitting tiny pulses of light which pass through the toenail, and directly to the fungus underneath. Thefungus is then irradiated without any damage to the surrounding nail or skin. The procedure is painless and normally takes 10-20 minutes. There may be some warming sensation felt during the session. It’s very easy to tolerate and causes absolutely no discomfort. Pain medication isn’t needed and patient may resume all normal activities after treatment. Depending on the severity of the fungus, you shouldn’t need more than one session. But this all varies from patient to patient. As for results, you won’t notice anything immediately after the treatment, as your nails need to grow out giving way to new, clear nail growth. Toe nails infected with fungus tend to grow much slower, so results should take anywhere from 6 months to a year.
