ZapNails uses the clinically proven PinPointe™ FootLaser™ device for the treatment of Onychomycosis (nail fungus). Clinical studies show that after a single procedure, more than 80% of patients experienced sustained improvement in the appearance of clearer nails.
Topical treatments and oral medications can take months or years to show any improvement in nail fungus infections. With our nail fungus laser treatment, you'll see results after a single 30-minute session – with further improvement over time.
Our nail fungus treatment protocol requires no anesthesia. It's completely pain-free, as the laser targets only the problem area, leaving surrounding skin and tissue unharmed. And it has none of the risks associated with other options for treating nail fungus infections.
Over the years, onychomycosis laser treatment patients have expressed a growing sense of frustration with the traditional practitioner business model, specifically:
ZapNails® addresses this by offering a personalized, all-inclusive plan for a flat, yearly fee. Our nail fungus treatment protocols are based on years of research by a leading, board certified Houston Podiatrist, who discovered a solution for “stalled results” by increasing the frequency of treatments to develop a personalized plan for each patient.
The process begins with a consultation, during which you'll receive an assessment and a proposed treatment schedule for Onychomycosis (nail fungus infection). You can sign up during the visit and receive your first treatment right away – it takes about 25-30 minutes.
ZapNails uses the clinically-proven PinPointe FootLaser system to target the fungus that lives in and under the nail. This type of infection is usually resistant to topical medications due to the location of infection. The laser light passes through the nail without causing damage to the nail or the surrounding skin. While most patients experience a visible improvement after a single treatment, repeated sessions enable the nail to grow back clearer and healthier over time.
Results will vary from patient to patient. We've developed protocols over years of experience that enable us to structure a treatment plan that's right for you. Most patients receive between 4-8 nail fungus laser treatment sessions in a 12-month period.
For most patients, it is virtually painless. Some may feel a warming sensation. An isolated few may feel a slight pinprick. However, there is no recovery period and patients can walk in and walk out upon completion of treatment.
Your ZapNails provider will typically complete the procedure in approximately 30 minutes.
Most patients report seeing an improvement after one procedure. However, there is a chance of reinfection because the fungus that causes Onychomycosis is present everywhere in the environment. In addition to your personalized laser treatment schedule, you'll be provided with recommendations for the prevention of recurrence.
ZapNails uses the PinPointe™ FootLaser™ system for the treatment of Onychomycosis (nail fungal infections). This laser is an FDA-approved Class IIIb with a 1064 nanometer wavelength. Clinical studies show that after a single procedure, more than 70% of patients experienced sustained improvement in the appearance of clearer nails.
This procedure is considered aesthetic, and therefore health insurance plans do not provide coverage.
Leading scientists and medical professionals working together for 20 years with funding provided by the National Institutes of Health developed the technology used in the patented PinPointe FootLaser. Clinical studies began in 2007. The FDA cleared its use in patients with Onychomycosis (nail fungus) in October 2010.
"After several years with little or not success, I decided to give the laser method a try. The results have been great, with improvements I did not expect to see so soon. I am very satisfied with the simplicity of the process and the outcome I have experienced."
