What is Onychomycosis?
Onychomycosis, often referred to as fungal nails, is a condition where the fungus feeds on the keratin in the nail.
The main sign of onychomycosis is discoloration of the nail, usually yellow in appearance. Without treatment, the fungal nail infection will continue to spread and cause the nail to thicken, become brittle and in some cases start to crumble. The infected nail then separates from the nail bed due to the formation of keratin between the layers and can potentially result in permanent damage to the nail.

How does ClearSteps™ work?
ClearSteps™ is a simple and effective procedure that uses the power of laser light to heat evenly throughout the depth of the effected nail and skin tissue, effectively weakening and killing parasitic fungi which have infected the nails. Laser treatment is usually performed four times at one week intervals. All of the nails should be treated during every treatment just in case the infection is dormant in other nails. Laser light can also effectively treat fungus which has infected skin tissue.
