Christie Clinic’s Department of Podiatry is the only area medical facility offering the Q-Clear Laser Treatment as an option for patients. This in-office procedure treats nail fungus of the toes with an 85% clinical efficacy rate. Laser treatment of the nail may reduce thickness, improve appearance, and make trimming easier.
Christie Clinic physicians use a Q-Switched NdYAG laser which is one of the most advanced dermatologic lasers currently available. In 3 to 10 billionths of a second, impulses of high power laser energy pass through the nail with no damage to the nail or surrounding skin. There is no post treatment pain, and patients may resume all normal activities immediately.
The procedure is considered cosmetic and is not covered by health insurance. To schedule an appointment in Christie Clinic’s Department of Podiatry, please call 217.366.5418.
