Is the laser treatment for toenail fungus painful?
Some people experience a small amount of discomfort, but the vast majority feels no pain. Some patients experience a heat sensation from the laser, sometimes a feeling like a quick pricking sensation. We use a cold air spray, and have some other techniques to keep them comfortable. Most people don’t feel much at all, and the feeling diminishes as they continue their treatments.
