Laser Therapy for Fungus

So many of our patients come to us embarrassed to wear sandals because they’re afraid someone may think poorly of them when they see the condition of their toenails.

We know exactly how how you feel because we treat patients that say the same thing every day. We are proud to be among the first podiatrists in Kentucky to use laser therapy for treating yellow, crumbly, thick and unattractive nails.

How Does It Work?

Our HyperBlue Laser is FDA cleared for the treatment of Onychomycosis (toenail fungus), as well as for other causes of dystrophic toenails such as trauma or auto-immune disorders. The laser treatment is:

  • painless,
  • has no harmful side effects and
  • can be performed quickly.

Laser therapy is not for everyone, so it’s important to be evaluated by a podiatric physician to evaluate the level of damage to the nail and determine if you are a candidate.

Remember, that the earlier you detect and treat fungus, the better your chances are of once again achieving beautiful sandal-worthy toenails.

Will this help MY toenails?

Toenail fungus is notoriously tough to treat. Laser therapy, when included in a comprehensive treatment plan suited to your individual case, is highly effective.

If you have this problem, I most definitely recommend that you come in and get the laser treatments and let Lexington Podiatry get you back on your feet and back in your open-toed shoes and your flip flops…if Dr. Freels will allow you to wear them!

Podiatrists specialize in the treatment of all things feet and have the most advanced technology available for your fungal toenails.

How much does this cost?

The prices below include laser therapy treatments on the affected toes once every 30 days, for 3 months in a row. 

  • 1-2 Nails $350  (Total cost of three laser therapy treatments)
  • 3-4 Nails $490  (Total cost of three laser therapy treatments)
  • 5-6 Nails $600  (Total cost of three laser therapy treatments)
  • 7-8 Nails $700  (Total cost of three laser therapy treatments)
  • 9-10 Nails $800  (Total cost of three laser therapy treatments)
Can we bill insurance?

Although insurance does not currently cover laser therapy, Care Credit, Health Savings Accounts and Flex Spending Accounts will cover the procedure.

Maintenance Option

Not all nail fungus responds to laser treatment the same, therefore Lexington Podiatry gives no guarantee of outcome. Some patients choose the maintenance option at their 6 month assessment to maintain clearing of nails or to continue treatment on an advanced case. *Retreat all 10 toes for $110 total every 6 months.

Remember, when you see a Groupon or flash sale for laser services for toenails to call and ask questions. Often, these ‘sale’ prices are not the great deal you think you’re getting. Many times, the sale price is for one visit only. Or, the facility performing the procedure is ‘re-purposing’ a laser (that is used for hair removal, etc) that is not specific or strong enough to penetrate through the nail and into the nail bed.

Absolutely amazing staff! Smiling faces, compassion and understanding! Couldn’t have asked for a better experience!

Amanda Rugg

I was frankly shocked at how good they were at EVERYthing. They saw me less than 2 hours after I called. Dr. Barko was ebullient and professional. You can ask them questions via TXT, which is huge. Their offices are spic-n-span and modern. Basically, they're knocking it out of the park. I don't wish for more in-grown toenails, but if it happens, I'm going straight back to Lexington Podiatry.

Mick Jeffries

I love Lexington Podiatry! The staff is always so helpful, and attentive. I love Dr. Freels. She is top notch, and is always so happy to see me, and listens to me about what is going on.

Amie Castle

Dr. Carter diagnosed and created a treatment plan in minutes- other podiatrists have treated me incorrectly for years. So pleased to have answers and solutions.

Katy Perkins

My left foot had been hurting for a while. The staff and doctors here are all quite knowledgeable and professional, as well as friendly and personable. My diagnosis was promptly made, x-ray completed right there in the office, and I left with the two braces that I needed. No waiting for the mail, trip to brace shop, nada. Most excellent clinic!
