BOSTON, MA (May 2, 2012)...
Boston Common Podiatry, led by established Boston podiatrist and board certified foot surgeon Jordana Szpiro, D.P.M., F.A.C.F.A.S., recently acquired the GenesisPlus Nd:YAG laser by Cutera, the most powerful FDA-cleared laser for the treatment of warts, fungus, scars and thermal resurfacing.
Boston Common Podiatry is one of the only providers in the Boston area using the powerful and innovative GenesisPlus laser in the treatment of fungal nails. The practice is accepting new patients.
The GenesisPlus laser provides a fast, highly effective solution, with minimal discomfort for warts, scars and Onychomycosis, which is a fungal infection that causes toenails to thicken, discolor and split. It is also ideal for skin rejuvenation and the treatment of spider veins.
Boston Common Podiatry’s impressive 80 watt GenesisPlus laser is 20 times stronger than the four watt PinPointe foot laser, which was previously used. The new laser also treats a larger, five millimeter area. For patients suffering with toenail fungus, results may be seen after one 15-30 minute session with the GenesisPlus laser. There is no down-time or serious side-effects.
"Previously, the treatment options for toenail fungus were the PinPointe laser or oral and topical prescription drugs. These options have a limited success rate. The PinPointe laser often requires multiple treatments and prescription fungal medications are not tolerated well by some patients. The GenesisPlus laser is safe, quick, with minimal discomfort, and provides results that are superior to other previous types of treatments," noted Dr. Szpiro.
