There is a huge and growing base of patients who need a definitive onychomycosis treatment. A treatment that is more effective than topical solutions and at least as effective as systemic antifungals, but without the long-term commitment, and especially without the risk of side effects associated with systemic drugs.
Ellipse laser treatment of onychomycosis offers a quick, painless and effective treatment.
Quick: Because of a new sub-millisecond pulse, and a high repetition rate, it is possible to treat 10 nails in 10 minutes.
Painless: Patients were asked to grade the pain on a level from 0-10, and gave an average score of 0.25! This is because of the short pulse used (which seems to confuse the nerves that would send pain messages) and even more because the Ellipse has SoftCool™ technology that blows a constant stream of cool air over the area being treated.
Effective: In the study 79% of patients saw an improvement in their nails, shown as an area of clear nail growth. Because nails (especially toe nails) grow slowly, this is not an overnight effect, but a process which can take a year to fully resolve.
Treatment is available on the Ellipse MultiFlex+, and is simple for both the patient and the operator.
This system features 6 intense pulsed light applicators (all with dual-mode filtering) to treat hair removal, vascular and pigmented lesions, acne, and photo rejuvenation. MultiFlex+ is the first IPL device cleared for photodynamic therapy.
