Zap Toenail Fungus with the CoolTouch CoolBreeze™ Laser

Do you have discolored thick toenails? Do you want to avoid strong medications that can cause liver damage (Lamisil® or Sporanox®)? Are you tired of liquids and creams that are time consuming to apply and never work?

Finally you can get rid of your discolored, cracked fungal toenails or onychomycosis with the latest laser advances. While lasers may seem scary to some, they are used daily for cosmetic procedures using safe light energy.

The CoolTouch CT3Plus CoolBreeze produces 1320nm laser energy that is specifically absorbed by water and water associated with collagen in the tissues of the nail matrix. The laser is so sophisticated that it can detect and reach the proper target temperature set by the doctor leading to death of the fungus. The treatment then stops immediately and then the nail is cooled with a cooling (cryogen) spray, hence the name CoolBreeze. This allows for fungal death without damaging the skin or the nail growth plate. CoolTouch's impeccable safety emanates from its incorporating pulsed cooling and real-time temperature feedback into its treatments. In addition, the CoolBreeze hand piece features an adjustable spot size from 3 mm to 10 mm allowing for adjustments based on nail size for most effectiveness. Other lasers currently being used do not incorporate these advanced features for patients, leading to less desirable outcomes and minimal safety features. The CoolTouch laser can be completely controlled. The treatment temperature to kill the fungus can occur automatically while incorporating safety. Each patient can receive a customized treatment leading to the best possible outcome. This is truly unique.

Dr. Fryman recommends three (3) treatments, each four to six weeks apart, and feels that this is very important. There are different growth phases of the nail and fungus and the best results occur when the patient receives at least 3 treatments. The cost of 3 treatments with the CoolTouch is usually less compared to only one treatment with the PinPointe laser. This certainly benefits the patient.

After the treatment patients need to follow a comprehensive maintenance regimen to prevent recurrence of the toenail infection. While success rates are high, no treatment can guarantee success all of the time.
