The cost of nail fungus laser procedure is $250 per treatment. We will do 3 laser procedures. Although we have found that while some people in Minnesota respond to just one to two treatments, nails grow so slowly (up to a year) that we couldn’t tell which patient will get better response within a few months. We have gotten a much greater success rate by performing 3 separate procedures for all nail fungus patients. These treatments are performed at 1 month intervals.
When we are unsure if your problem is fungus or not, and we postpone the laser treatment in order to wait for the results of your nail biopsy, we will charge you for an initial consultation. The initial consultation will usually be covered by your health insurance. If it is not covered, or you do not have health insurance that we take, or you do not have any health insurance, the charge for the consult will be $70. This $70 will be applied towards your laser procedure. If we do your initial consultation and decide that you are not a candidate for the laser procedure, your total charge will be just the $70 for the consultation, and we will have saved you money by not doing a laser procedure that would not have worked. As a courtesy to our laser clients, this $70 is discounted from our usual consultation rates. This charge will cover our time, and also, you will receive alternative treatment options for your nail problem. Again, if you are a candidate for the laser, and we go forward with the laser, this $70 will be applied to the cost of the laser.
This laser procedure for nail fungus is currently not covered by any insurance. You may however, use your flexible spending or medical savings account.
The $250 must be paid in advance of performing each laser procedure. We take cash, check and charge (MasterCard & Visa)
Additionally, we always recommend using The SteriShoe sanitizer, it uses ultraviolet light to kills the organisms in the shoes that cause Toe nail fungus – Athlete’s foot – Offensive shoe odor. You can insert the SteriShoe sanitizer into your shoes and treat them for 45 minute. The price of a pair of SteriShoe is $130.
Refund & Cancellation Policy
If you cancel in advance of the laser you will not be charged for the procedure. If you have the initial consultation and opt not to perform the laser for any reason, your $70 consultation fee will not be refunded. If we determine that you are not a candidate for the laser, your initial consultation fee will not be refunded.
There are no refunds once the laser procedure is performed. We make no guarantees as to a successful outcome and cure of nail fungus. In the event that the procedure does not work, we will recommend other treatment alternatives or rarely, a repeat procedure (each treatments for an additional $250). (Unfortunately, just like every other treatment for nail fungus, the laser procedure will not work for everyone.)
