Same-day appointments are available, so reach out today to schedule yours.

How GenesisPlus Works

The GenesisPlus is a safe, FDA-approved laser treatment solution for toenail fungus and warts. An Nd:YAG 1064nm laser, the GenesisPlus is approved by the FDA as a safe and effective solution for nail infection (onychomycosis), more commonly known as toenail fungus, and as a wart removal tool.

The laser light from the GenesisPlus passes through the nail and the surrounding tissue. The light is absorbed by pigment in the fungi, which causes the pigment to heat; this heat kills or damages the fungal organism. This can result in your nail growing normally.

What to Expect During the Treatment Process

Laser treatments are useful in eliminating nail infections and restoring clear nails. Most of our clinics’ patients experience at least some improvement. During treatments, most patients experience a warm feeling in their toes. A clinical study reported no adverse effects related to the laser.

During the GenesisPlus treatment process, a specialist will pass a laser over your infected nails and surrounding skin. We’ll repeat this several times until an effective amount of energy has reached your nailbed.
