Your Laser Treatment Specialist in Beverly Hills
The newest in technological advancements is laser therapy, which uses medical lasers approved by the FDA to treat a variety of conditions. Lasers can excise, ablate, and vaporize soft tissue while sterilizing and sealing blood vessels. Because of their incredible precision, any surrounding healthy tissue is left unaffected.BookAn Appointment
Our Approach to Laser Treatment
Historically, treatments for various tissue growths have been riddled with side effects from medications’ inability to distinguish between healthy cells and painful warts, fungus, and benign overgrowths. Topical creams and oral medications can cause skin irritation, complicated interactions, organ damage, and even excess pain - the exact thing you’re trying to get rid of.
Our team uses a range of specially designed laser beams to treat your conditions with little to no discomfort. GenesisPlus is a Nd:YAG 1064 nm laser most commonly used for onychomycosis nail infections and lesion ablation.
Cases of toenail fungus are often the result of contact with dermatophytes in our everyday environments. We’re all at risk for nail infection, but genetic susceptibility, poor health, increasing age, and frequenting certain spaces, such as public pools and gyms, increase your chances of contracting a fungal infection. Warts are manifestations of other common viruses, most often human papillomavirus (HPV). The benign growth of nerve tissue (neuromas) or fibrous connective tissue (fibromas) have various or unknown causes. No matter your condition, laser treatment may be the solution.
Laser treatments are performed with no anesthesia, because it doesn’t hurt.
In fact, patients typically report having immediate relief from their previously painful symptoms. During laser treatment, you can expect to feel a warming sensation. This heat is deadly for unwanted microbes, but safe and painless for you. Everything is done outpatient, so you can resume all normal activities immediately.
Conditions We Treat With Laser Treatment
Scars and Warts
Warts are small growths within the top layer of skin. Not only are they unsightly, but they can be painful. Warts are typically caused by viral infections, which means they may spread to other parts of the body if left unattended. Laser treatment offers permanent relief for paronychial, periungual, and subungual warts impervious to other remedies. In addition, GenesisPlus can be used to reduce the appearance of scars.
Fungal Nail Treatment
Laser treatment kills toenail fungus and promotes healthy nail growth better than other treatments in 80% of patients. The intense beams of light permeate the nail, killing fungal spores at the source: the nail bed. This fungal treatment is painless, quick, effective, and without side effects. No fungal treatment can remove already sick, discolored nails, but as your nail naturally grows, it will come back clear and healthy.
Neuromas, Fibromas, and Chronic Pain
Because laser treatment interacts with tissues on a cellular level, it can be used to treat chronic pain when other options have proven futile. Cool laser therapy increases metabolic activity to speed up the healing process. Increased nutrient transport, reduced inflammation, and pain relief will help mitigate the chronic symptoms of neuromas (pinched nerves), fibromas (benign tumors), and more.
While trimming ingrown nails provides temporary relief, laser treatment can provide lasting results. A CO2 laser will be used to remove the base of the incorrectly growing nail, also known as the matrix horn. This method can treat even the peskiest of recurring ingrown nails with minimal pain, bleeding, and surgical invasiveness.
