Laser in podiatry: innovative treatment

Laser treatment is an innovative methodology with numerous applications in the field of podiatry. Laser treatments can be used to

  • Eliminate nail fungus
  • Treatment of plantar fasciitis
  • Papillomas
  • IPk calluses
  • Healing function
  • Pain in the sole of the foot
  • Ingrown toenail surgery

It is important to understand that depending on the pathology to be treated, different wavelengths are used, depending on the type of tissue and its depth. In addition, it has many advantages over other techniques such as fast and effective treatment.

However, depending on the procedure to be followed, treatment times may take longer. For example, in the case of nail fungus, the treatment may require from one session to approximately eight, while for plantar fasciitis the treatment time is usually extended for a month with two weekly sessions.

Regarding laser treatment and other complementary techniques, it is possible to state that it is usually combined with external treatments, such as vitamin supplements and lacquers.

Finally, it is important to remember that laser treatment does not work in the same way in all patients, since not all cases tolerate the same wavelengths, which may require more sessions than those stipulated in order not to reduce its effectiveness.
