Genesis Treatment for Toe Nail Fungus and Warts

Laser treatment can potentially be an effective way to clear unsightly and discolored toenails from fungal infection or onychomycosis.

How does Genesis II work?

Tiny pulses of light from the laser pass through the toenail to the fungus underneath. The fungus is irradiated without any damage to the surrounding nail or skin. *Results may vary

How long does the procedure take?

Depending on how many toes are affected, the Genesis II laser procedure will take 20-30 minutes.

Is Genesis II painful?

Most people feel a slight warming sensation during the procedure. No pain medication is needed and most people find the treatment very easy to tolerate. *Results may vary

How many treatments will I need?

Patients need 2-3 treatments but some need more if they have severe cases of toenail fungus.

Are there any restrictions on my activity post procedure?

You can resume normal activities immediately. *Results may vary

When will I see results?

You won’t  notice anything immediately following treatment. However, as your nail grows out, the new nail growth should be clear. Toe nails grow slowly – especially nails infected with fungus. It may take 6-12 months for your toenail to clear. *Results may vary

Will the fungus come back?

Reinfection with toenail fungus may be acquired anywhere from your environment, for example, in damp areas such as public swimming pools. We will review recommendations on how to prevent toenail fungus from reoccurring. *Results may vary

When can I apply nail polish?

While it is important to remove nail polish, decoration and jewelry prior to treatment, you can reapply nail polish 24 hours after treatment. *Time frame may vary

How does Genesis II compare to other toenail fungus treatments?

Traditional treatments such as nail trimming, topical medicine, oral medicine or nail removal have significant drawbacks. Nail trimming doesn’t treat the fungus. Topical medicines need to be applied for 12 months and have a low success rate. Oral medicines are taken for 3 months but can cause liver or kidney problems. Genesis II is a quick, easy, safe, effective procedure that can potentially treat the fungus at the source. *Results may vary



The laser uses an intense beam of light, or laser, to destroy the wart tissue. When wart medication has failed, laser treatment can potentially be effective on large or stubborn warts. *Results may vary
