PinPointe FAQ's

Q:  How does the PinPointe FootLaser work?
A:  The PinPointe FootLaser kills fungus that lives in and under the nail. The laser light passes through
the nail without causing damage to the nail or the surrounding skin. At the time of the procedure, the
toenail will not become instantly clear— it takes time to grow out.

Q:  What can I expect in the provider’s office?
A:  The process begins with a consultation in which your provider, who will explain the procedure that is
to be performed and any follow-up visits that may be required.

Q:  Is the procedure painful?
A:  Most patients feel no pain. Some may feel a warming sensation. An isolated few may feel a slight
pinprick.

Q:  Is there a recovery period?
A:  No. The treatment is a walk in/walk out procedure.

Q:  How long does the procedure take?
A:  The PinPointe FootLaser procedure typically takes about 30 minutes.

Q:  Will the fungus grow back?
A:  The infection improves after one treatment. However, there is a chance of reinfection because the
fungus is present everywhere in the environment. Your will recommend care techniques to help reduce a
recurrence of the infection.

Q:  When is it safe to paint my nails or have a pedicure following treatment?
A:  You can apply polish immediately after the treatment. It is important that you remove all nail polish
and nail decorations the day before your treatment.

Q:  Is the procedure covered by insurance?
A: This procedure is considered aesthetic and therefore health insurance does not provide coverage.

Q:  How long has the PinPointe FootLaser been in use?
A:  Clinical studies began in November 2007.

Q:  Is the PinPointe FootLaser FDA cleared?
A:  Yes, the device has received FDA clearance.

Q:  Who developed the PinPointe FootLaser procedure?
A:  Leading scientists and medical professionals working together for 20 years with funding provided by
the National Institutes of Health developed the technology used in the patented PinPointe FootLaser
