About the Cutera GenesisPlus™ laser system
The GenesisPlus laser system is a new system designed to treat toenail fungus in such a way that it does not affect the surrounding skin or nail in any way. With a trained physician targeting the fungus, the GenesisPlus laser is immediately effective.
Tiny pulses of light pass through the toenail with no adverse effects, and starts treating the fungus. The treatment is fast and effective. It is usually spread over a couple of visits, with the procedure usually taking no more than 30 minutes to complete. No pain medication is needed and patients can return to every day activities immediately.
Along with toenail fungus, the GenesisPlus system can be used to treat warts and scars. It has proven to be very effective in long term treatment with patients.
