Why Q-Clear for toenail fungus treatment? The Q-Clear laser is a mid-infrared laser wavelength that penetrates the nail, eliminating the destructive infections and revitalizing your nail as it grows out. Like several other lasers used in podiatry, it is FDA cleared for treatment of fungal toenails. But while other lasers create a thermal effect, the Q-Clear creates short, but extremely powerful pulses of laser energy, so it’s mechanism of action is actually through a mechanical or “shockwave” effect, with very little heating. There is very little potential for discomfort or burning of the tissue with the Q-Clear, as compared to other lasers.
We know you are ready to see healthier, more beautiful nails.

Kansas City Foot and Ankle also offers more traditional treatment options for fungal toenails:
Topical treatments require the patient to apply medication to the infected toenails once or twice daily for up to a year. The success rate in killing the fungus with topical medication is only between 15-30%.
Oral medications have a higher success rate, but also have potential side effects. The medication can affect your liver and can alter your sense of taste. Pregnant women or people with liver issues should not take the oral medications.
Find out which treatment option is right for you. If you are concerned about those thickened, discolored toenails, call 816-943-1111 or set up a consultation with Dr. Green and Dr. Jameson today.
What’s the number one reason why fungal toenail treatments don’t work?
Recommended nail polish for fungal toenails
If you wear nail polish, our podiatrists recommend Dr.’s REMEDY Nail Polish. Regular nail polish actually promotes fungal growth. It acts as a barrier, creating a dark, moist environment beneath the nail; a perfect setup for fungus. If you’re going to wear nail polish, make sure it’s Dr’s REMEDY all natural nail polish.
