Laser Services for Fungal Nails Many patients come to us concerned about wearing sandals due to their discolored, thickened, and damaged toenails. They are embarrassed because they are afraid someone may think poorly of them when they see the condition of their toenails. We know exactly how you feel because we treat patients that feel that way on a daily basis. We are proud to be the only podiatric office in North Texas to use the only cold laser FDA approved laser therapy on the market for treating yellow, crumbly, thick and unattractive nails. How Does It Work? Our Lunula 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:
- has no harmful side effects and
- can be performed quickly.
- Clearance of nails in an average of 6 months
- Cold laser treatment resulting in no risk of burning tissue which makes this a very safe treatment for our patients with co-morbidities such as diabetes
- Safe to use on bare skin for patients who have had major nail loss
- 89% of patients respond to this treatment
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.
How much does it cost?
See Pricing for details. Not all nail fungus responds to laser treatment the same, therefore Carrollton Foot Center gives no guarantee of outcome. Some patients may need the maintenance option at their 6 month assessment to maintain clearing of nails or to continue treatment on an advanced case. Although insurance does not currently cover laser therapy, Care Credit, Health Savings Accounts and Flex Spending Accounts will cover the procedure.
What conditions can be treated with RSWT?
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Achilles Tendinitis
- Diabetic Wounds
How does RSWT work?
When you experience chronic pain, your body no longer recognizes that there is an injury to that area. As a result, it shuts down the healing process and you feel no relief. The ballistic sound waves of the Enpuls penetrate deep through your soft tissue, causing a microtrauma or new inflammatory condition to the treated area. Once this occurs, it then triggers your body’s natural healing response once again. The energy emitted also causes the cells in the soft tissue to release certain bio-chemicals that intensify the body’s natural healing process. These bio-chemicals allow for the building of an array of new microscopic blood vessels in the soft tissue.

Why Choose Regenerative Medicine? One of the reasons stem cell recruitment therapy, along with other regenerative medicine techniques like Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), is so attractive to patients is because it’s natural and doesn’t involve the hassle and risk of going to the operating room or the side effects of corticosteroid injections. This treatment usually consists of nothing more than a simple injection. An amniotic fluid injection is used for long term healing options and not used to mask the pain. Using different techniques, we can almost eliminate any pain you might feel. The goal is to give patients high quality care with minimal discomfort and downtime. Where Does the Amniotic Fluid Come From? The Amniotic Fluid is obtained duringfull-term cesarean births from healthy donors who have volunteered their placenta and amniotic fluid. Donation does not require fetal sacrifice.
