We now offer toenail fungus laser treatment

Serving the Vancouver Lower Mainland area – Vancouver, Richmond, Burnaby, Surrey, Delta and New Westminster

Type of Laser

The GenesisPlus could be the only laser specifically made to deal with toenail fungus. It is a quick and effective method to enhance clear nails in patients with onychomycosis (toenail fungus). Cutera has been a leader in the aesthetic laser industry for more than 12 years and shows the new Standard of Care in the therapy of onychomycosis.


In clinical tests, the Cutera GenesisPlus was demonstrated to give up to an 85% treatment rate in the fungal nails treated. Furthermore, we have produced an intra and post treatment regimen to enhance outcomes and avoid the return of the fungal disease.

What to Expect

Laser toenail fungus treatment is actually a non-invasive, quick and painless method. You can expect to experience a bit of warmth from the laser, but this is actually the only actual experience associated with this kind of therapy. The laser can penetrate the toenail allowing it to reach on to the fungus and eliminate it.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does the laser work?

The laser penetrates the nail plate and heats the tissue, killing the fungus beneath. At the time of the procedure, the toenail will not become instantly clear but the new nail growing out will be. After the initial treatment, two more treatments will be performed over two month intervals.

Is this treatment safe?

The Genesis Plus Laser has been both Canada Health and FDA approved. No side effects or adverse reactions have been reported.Is the procedure painful?Most people feel little discomfort. The level of heat generated will be constantly monitored and feedback controlled by you.

What can I expect immediately following the procedure?

Immediately following the procedure your nail may feel warm for a few minutes.

When will I see results?

Over the coming weeks to months, the new nail should begin to grow clear, healthy and fungus-free. On average, most patients will start to see results within eight to 10 weeks.

How soon can I return to normal activities?

The majority of patients can resume normal activities immediately after their treatment. Your podiatrist will discuss this in more detail.

Will the fungus come back?

The infection improves following one treatment but you will need to continue with home care techniques to reduce recurrence of the infection. There is a chance of re-infection because the fungus is present everywhere in the environment.

When can I paint my nails or have a pedicure?

You can apply polish immediately after the treatment. It is important to remove all nail polish and nail decorations the day before your treatment.

Is there a recovery period?

No. You walk in and walk out

Why should I have my laser treatment done by a Podiatrist?

Other businesses such as spas offer laser therapy. However, spas do not typically have medical doctors on staff to correctly diagnosis toenail fungus or other foot problems. This may lead to unnecessary or improper treatment.
