Did You Know…
Neurotoxins are medications developed from the bacteria known as clostridium botulinum. Researchers noticed that people infected with this bacterium had suffered muscle weakness. Dysport and Botox have been developed from this discovery.
In the past some doctors tried to dye the patient hair dark so that more of the laser energy would be absorbed by the hair and thereby the laser would more effectively remove the hair. Unfortunately, it did not work because the dye did not reach the hair follicle.
The idea behind the CoolSculpt machine started after doctors noticed that children who sucked on popsicles lost the fat in their cheeks without damage to the skin. It is amazing what can develop from a simple observation.
The light from a hair removal laser passes through the skin and is absorbed by the hair follicle. The laser energy is absorbed by the hair follicle and is destroyed. Since people have different skin colors, we need to have lasers with a variety of colors of laser light.
The word “Cosmetic” is derived from the Greek word “Kosmos” which means “of this world.”
The same laser that is used for hair removal, can get rid of toe nail fungus.
Just before the laser is fired, a jet of frozen air is sent to the skin to protect the skin from the laser energy and to decrease the pain.
A tan can absorb some of the energy of laser light and prevent the laser light from reaching the hair follicle. Do not get a tan before laser hair removal.
In the 1450s, women would shave their pubic hair to get rid of lice. And then they would have a pubic hair wig made as a replacement.

Laser Treatments May be the Solution

Toenail fungus can be treated with Laser

When you live with toe nail fungus, you know exactly how it effects your self-confidence. Instead of hiding your feet, avoiding sandals and covering your toe nails with polish, explore laser treatment for toe nail fungus.

Unlike other toe nail fungus treatments, the GentleMax Pro® laser gets right to the heart of where the fungus lives, unlike oral medications that must first travel throughout your system. The GentleMax Pro® is so powerful and effective that laser treatments are becoming the standard for eliminating toe nail fungus. Compared to oral meds, laser treatment has no side effects and offers long-lasting results.

How does the GentleMax Pro® laser target the toe nail fungus?

The GentleMax Pro® laser targets and destroys the fungus while leaving healthy tissue unaffected. The laser emits quick bursts of heat to the area to be treated. Within three to six months, a healthy nail begins to regrow. Since how quickly or slowly nails grow varies from person to person, it can take approximately one year for a new nail to completely replace the infected one.

How Many GentleMax Pro® laser system treatments are required for effective treatment?

Normally, you can expect to undergo three GentleMax Pro® laser treatments scheduled four to six weeks apart to completely treat toe nail fungus.

Will GentleMax Pro® laser system treatments hurt?

Of course, pain is relative. Some people have a higher tolerance for pain than others. It is possible that you may feel some discomfort during your GentleMax Pro® toe nail fungus treatment. Most report that any discomfort subsides once the procedure is finished.
