The first practice in San Francisco offering Cutera's GenesisPlus Techonology!
The Foot and Ankle Institute of San Francisco, the private practice of Dr. Bill Metaxas, is proud to be among the first in San Francisco to offer Cutera's GenesisPlus Laser to treat toenail fungus, eliminating the infection and restoring healthy, clear nails.
Toenail fungus, also known as onychomycosis, is a condition in which the toenails become yellow or discolored, thick, and brittle as a result of a fungal infection. Studies have shown a prevalence of this condition as high as 10-25%.
Cutera GenesisPlus laser treatment can safely eliminate toenail fungus infection using modern laser technology, and is FDA approved to treat toenail fungus, or onychomycosis.
An article in The New York Times reported that one early laser manufacturer misrepresented their FDA clearance.
Treatment involves laser light passing through the nail and surrounding tissue, improving the appearance of the nail, as well as reducing pain.
The procedure takes about thirty minutes, depending on severity, and requires no anesthesia. Patients are able to return to their normal activities almost immediately.
