Laser Treatments Q&A

Can laser treatments stop my feet from hurting? 

Yes. At Prestige Podiatry Care, Dr. Panchal uses laser treatments to manage a variety of common foot and ankle problems that cause pain, including:

  • Fungal toenails
  • Ingrown toenails
  • Achilles tendinitis
  • Arthritis
  • Gout
  • Bone spurs
  • Bunions
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Hammertoes

  • Neuromas
  • Shin splints
  • Sprains and strains
  • Warts
  • Diabetic ulcers and other slow-healing wounds

You might also benefit from laser treatments if you’re recovering from foot or ankle surgery. Laser treatments encourage healing at the cellular level and can speed up your return to exercise and other activities. 

What are podiatric laser treatments?

Laser treatments, like the class IV Remy laser, use targeted wavelengths of light energy to support your body’s natural healing process. 

The Remy laser is unique in that it offers a variety of customizable settings, designed to treat specific foot and ankle-related conditions. It has four different settings, as well as continuous and pulse operation modes, allowing Dr. Panchal to develop a personalized treatment plan. 

Because treatment involves light energy, there’s no need for anesthesia or incisions, like surgery. As a result, you can return to work and other daily activities as soon as your appointment is over. 

What do laser treatments involve?

Laser treatments with the Remy laser take place in the office. 

During the procedure, Dr. Panchal points a handheld laser device at a specific part of your foot –– like your heel, arch, or ball. The device emits specific frequencies of light energy, promoting healing at the cellular level. 

The time that treatment takes depends on several factors, including the severity of your symptoms and the problem addressed. 

Laser treatments are cumulative, meaning the results add up over time. As a result, Dr. Panchal usually recommends a series of laser treatment sessions over the course of several weeks or months. 

What are the benefits of laser treatments?

Laser treatments with the class IV Remy laser offer various benefits, including:

  • Instant pain-relief
  • Faster healing
  • Reduced risk of complications
  • No anesthesia necessary
  • No incisions or risk of infection

Laser treatments can even save you money. You don’t need to stay in the hospital as you would with surgery, and insurance plans may cover it.
