Laser Toenail Fungus Treatments in Tampa, St. Pete and Clearwater

Dr. Katz Adds a Second Laser for Better Treatments!

So where do you begin if you want to have the laser treatment? Well, Dr. Katz, a board-certified podiatrist, has done much of the research for you! After conducting his own personal research over the past number of years he chose the CoolTouch laser. There are a number of lasers on the market and he chose the CT3 plus zoom 1320nm laser which allows for the most powerful, flexible and safest treatment. Now Dr. Katz is using a combination of the Cooltouch and the latest technology in lasers.  Our newest laser is the Diowave 30 watt and is an excellent complement to the Cooltouch.  You will not find any other doctors using combination laser therapy to give you even better results. Other lasers that did not make the cut included Pinpointe, Noveon, K Laser, Palomar Lux, Aerolase, Fotona and other lasers that operate with a wavelength of 1064nm. The Diowave operated in lower wavelengths causing super levels of oxygen that lead to fungal death in the nail and the skin without heat!

After using the CoolTouch, Dr. Katz planned to enhance the treatment by altering the treatment protocol. He has adjusted the many laser settings to take advantage of two methods of fungus damage and death. The first is by heating the nail, which is a common method used by many other physicians. For his second step in furthering the success rate for his patients, Dr. Katz researched methods of fungus destruction by altering the genetics or DNA of the actual fungus. He optimized the laser variables based on his studies, providing his patients two methods of destruction and the best results.

Still not satisfied, Dr. Katz took the treatment even further providing an even greater benefit to his patient. He developed his own antifungal liquid formulation used during treatment which improved the laser.  Now Advanced Podiatry continues to give you the best results by combining the Diowave and the Cooltouch.

In studies done by Dr. Katz, he has found that using the cold spray feature on the Cooltouch is not beneficial because it drops the laser temperature.  So we use the Cooltouch without this feature to improve your results.
