At Coastal Foot Center, Dr. Griffin uses the Cutera GenesisPlus laser to treat both toenail fungus and plantar warts. This innovative device is safe, comfortable, effective, and only one of two lasers that are FDA-approved to treat toenail fungus.
When Dr. Griffin treats your toenail fungus with the GenesisPlus laser, the light from the handheld device travels safely through your toenail to the fungus underneath it. This laser light destroys the fungus without damaging your surrounding tissue, including your nails and skin.
When you have a laser treatment to remove a plantar wart, Dr. Griffin uses the Cutera GenesisPlus laser to target the blood vessel inside your wart. By destroying the wart’s blood supply, the wart begins to die. In many cases, a blood blister forms after your laser treatment, aiding in the destruction of your plantar wart.
These laser treatments usually take between 10-30 minutes. For the treatment of toenail fungus, you don’t need anesthesia or pain medication during or after the procedure. For the treatment of warts, Dr. Griffin does administer a local anesthesia before he begins.
Unlike other treatments for toenail fungus and plantar warts, a laser treatment with the Cutera GenesisPlus laser brings a range of benefits, including:
The GenesisPlus laser also features a heat sensor, ensuring its accuracy and safety. As soon as the treatment is over, you can return to your regular day-to-day activities.
