Laser Treatments Q & A

What are laser treatments?

Laser treatments are an effective way to treat a number of acute and chronic podiatric conditions.

The team at Tri-Town Podiatry uses The Remy, a powerful, Class IV laser cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The Remy targets painful areas of your feet with laser energy that heats up your soft tissues.

This process stimulates your own healing ability without the need for incisions or invasive surgery.

Why would I need laser treatments?

The Tri-Town Podiatry team might recommend treatments with The Remy to address painful or debilitating conditions like:

  • Gout
  • Bunions
  • Neuroma
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Inflammation
  • Toenail fungus
  • Achilles tendonitis

The Tri-Town Podiatry team can also perform laser surgery to remove warts without the need for anesthesia. If you need traditional surgery for a chronic foot condition, follow-up laser treatments can increase the efficiency of healing open wounds.

What can I expect during laser treatments?

The powerful laser energy works by stimulating your body’s own ability to heal itself to reduce inflammation and pain.

You can expect to sit or lie comfortably throughout your laser treatment. The Tri-Town Podiatry team applies a handheld device to the treatment area and delivers energy through your skin without harming the tissue.

The team at Tri-Town Podiatry team carefully controls the settings to maximize your results. They use interchangeable handpieces to treat multiple conditions during the same appointment.

You can expect to go back to your usual activities immediately after your procedure. Many people experience a significant reduction in their pain right away. It can take time to notice the other effects of laser treatments as your body continues healing.

What are the benefits of podiatric laser treatments?

The Remy laser device offers many benefits over other podiatric therapies. Not only can you achieve faster pain relief, but you can also enjoy benefits like:

  • Fast treatment times
  • Drug-free treatment
  • Minimal side effects
  • Faster surgical healing
  • Reduced post-surgical risks

The team at Tri-Town Podiatry might recommend a series of laser treatments to optimize your results depending on the reason for your treatment.
