How does GenesisPlus work?
Laser light from GenesisPlus passes through the nail and the surrounding tissue. The laser light is absorbed by pigment in the fungi, which causes the pigment to heat, and this heat kills or damages the fungal organism. This can result in your nail growing normally.
What can you expect?
The treatment involves passing the laser beam over the infected nails and surrounding skin. Your physician will repeat this several times until enough energy has reached the nail bed. Your nail will feel warm during the treatment.
Treatment times will vary, so please ask your doctor for more information.
The majority of patients can resume normal activities immediately.
Are there any clinical studies?
In a clinical study, 68% of patients treated for toenail fungus showed improvement in the percent of nail clear of infection.
The amount of nail improvement you may experience is dependent on your individual circumstances and should be discusses with your doctor.

Will the fungus come back?
Your nail infection should improve following treatment but you will need to continue with home care techniques to reduce recurrence of the infection as advised by your doctor. There is a chance of re-infection because the fungus is present everywhere in the environment.
