Nail Fungus - ClearToe™
A safe, comfortable, non-toxic, and effective laser treatment for nail fungus
What is ClearToe?
Nail fungus is prevalent worldwide and up until now, has had very limited, ineffective, and undesirable treatment options. These options include topical antifungal creams that cannot penetrate the nail adequately to completely eradicate fungus, oral antifungals that may be hepatotoxic, or permanent removal of the nail. Sciton’s ClearToe technology heats the nail and the nail bed with laser energy resulting in a decrease of nail fungus and an increase in the growth of clear nails. With the ClearToe technology, your practitioner knows when he or she reaches the optimum clinical temperature, maximizing your treatment efficacy, comfort and safety.
