ClearChoice

ClearChoice is an FDA cleared, advanced protocol that combines two laser technologies for the treatment of nail fungus (onychomycosis).
The ClearChoice treatment for nail fungus is in most instances a series of 2-3, quick treatment sessions, with minimal discomfort and no side effects. The lasers target the fungus located deep beneath the nail plate, eradicating the source of the infection with no harmful effects on healthy tissue. 

ClearChoice™ utilizes two distinct and proven laser technologies:

  • Q-Swithed Nd:YAG
  • Long Pulsed Nd:YAG

The lasers emit powerful bursts of light that transmit through the nail plate to the nail bed to be absorbed by the pigmented yeasts responsible for the infection. Non-specific heat conduction is then introduced by the Nd:YAG 1064 laser beam where the unwanted organism is thermally deactivated as the target area absorbs the beam of radiation and transfer the thermal energy to the unwanted organism. Against this kind of laser, nail fungus doesn’t stand a chance.

ClearChoice advantages:

  • Fast and Easy Therapy – Pre set protocols make this a fast and effective treatment.
  • Non toxic – There is no long-term side effects.
  • No systemic blood monitoring needed – Because the therapy is light-based and non toxic, you’re not burdened by ongoing blood monitoring or other intensely monitored care.
  • Minimal Discomfort – We know that nothing’s more important than your patient’s comfort. If any treatment is intolerable, after all, patients won’t come back. ClearChoice utilizes an In-Motion™ technique that gradually heats up the affected area. If a patient is uncomfortable the operator simply rests for second or two, then continues the therapy when the patient is ready. ClearChoice is a virtually painless alternative to painful nail fungus lasers.

Aftercare

After treatment it is very important to follow the following Advice:

  • Keep your feet clean and dry
  • Avoid synthetic materials and allow your feet to “breathe”
  • Ensure shoes fit well
  • Change your socks daily
  • Keep toenails short
  • Never share toenail clippers, towels, shoes or socks
  • Do not walk around barefoot in public places (swimming pools, showers, changing rooms)
  • Treat athlete’s foot, as this can spread to the nails
  • Be particularly vigilant if the toenail is damaged
  • Treat any early signs of recurring fungal nail infection as early as possible to avoid it becoming entrenched. The sooner it is treated, the better the result will be
  • Be careful if you use nail salons – their equipment should be sterilised or disposable, in order to avoid passing on infections

FAQs

Symptoms of fungal nail infection?

Discolouration – the nail can become white, yellow or even in severe nails yellow, green, brown or black

Distortion – the nail can become very thick and twisted. It can be quite difficult to trim due to the shape/texture

Discomfort – it isn’t normally painful, but can be when there is pressure

Weak– the nail can be very brittle, with pieces breaking off and even sometimes the nail may come away completely

Skin– sometimes the surrounding skin can become infected and be itchy and cracked or red and swollen. If using topical treatments, the skin can become red, itchy or irritated as a result of the chemicals used.

How does the treatment work?

ClearChoice™ treatment with the Harmony XL Pro uses a combination of clinically proven laser technologies:

  • Q-Switched Nd:YAG
  • Long Pulsed Nd:YAG

The lasers emit powerful bursts of light that go directly through the nail plate to the nail bed. The laser targets the infection beneath the nail, working to systematically destroy the fungus responsible for the infection.

Is the treatment painful?

ClearChoice™ is virtually painless.
