The use of laser for treating nail fungus is well accepted by the clients because great results have been obtained. Laser light is absorbed into the target area and heat generated by that energy is sufficient to damage the fungal cell structure while expanding the heat to the surrounding tissue. The benefits using lasers with longer wavelength is that they have greater tissue penetration than antifungal medication and thus may be more effective at treating infection embedded within the nail.In this course participants may acquire the knowledge and skill to perform laser nail fungus therapy, and it is suitable for Podiatrists, MD, Nurse Practitioner, Physician Assistant, and for Medical Assistant Dermatology with previous laser Certification and working under direct supervision of a Dermatology Board Certified.
