What is ClearSense?

The ClearSense system is a laser delivery technology for the improvement of dermatologic conditions including the temporary increase in clear nails for patients with onychomycosis. Onychomycosis is an infection of the nails. The nails fungus usually begins growing on the skin around the nail and then enters the nail bed and nail plate. Visual changes in the infected nail’s appearance usually have one or more of the following: no luster, nail brittleness, yellow streaks, thick nails that may separate from the skin, or white spots.

How does ClearSense work?

ClearSense laser technology heats the nail bed with laser energy resulting in a decrease of nail fungus and an increase of growth of clear nails. The treatment involves passing the laser beam over the infected nails and the surrounding skin. This will be repeated until enough energy has reached the nail bed. Your nail will feel warm during the treatment.

Does ClearSense have any side effects?

Pain: The snapping and heating sensation of each laser pulse may produce a minimal to moderate amount of discomfort. An anesthetic cream may be used to reduce the discomfort.

Swelling: This is rare and should resolve with ice and elevation.

Fungus recurrence: Some fungal infections may recur.

Will l have downtime?

Patients will have no post treatment pain. There may be mild redness briefly after the treatment but this should resolve in 24 hours, You may resume normal activity immediately following treatment.
