Optimal Diode Laser System in Podiatry
Laser surgery is often a successful treatment for lesions, tumors and nail disorders. Laser treatments do not damage tissue in surrounding areas, are often painless, and allow patients to recover quickly. Two common conditions that are successfully treated with laser procedures are toenail fungus and warts.
Qolight laser has been used in various published studies as an innovative treatment for foot pathologies. Not only its mechanism of action improve healing, blood flow and pain, but can treat toenail infections.
980nm/1064nm Wavelength in Laser Podiatry
The Qolight laser system emits infrared light with a wavelength of 980nm/1064nm. The laser allows deeper penetration into tissues and reduces the risk of pigmentation changes, without damaging the surrounding tissues. Due to the increased interaction of molecules with the laser, heat is distributed more evenly.
The way of wart treatment is based on photodermal or photomechanical destruction of the target tissue. Target structures absorb coherent monochrome light of 980nm/1064nm wavelength and fluence. The light energy is converted into heat energy, thus destroying the structure of the warts. Depending on the pulse duration and energy density, this may result in coagulation (photodermal effect) or blasting (photomechanical effect) of these structures.
Laser treatment of onychomycosis uses the principle of selective photothermolysis, defined as the precise targeting of tissue using 980nm/1064nm wavelength of light. The light is absorbed into the target area and heat generated by that energy is sufficient to damage the target area while sparing the surrounding area. The aim of laser treatment for onychomycosis is to heat the nail bed to temperatures required to disrupt fungal growth and at the same time avoid pain and necrosis to surrounding tissues.
