Ingrown nail or Onyxis is the ingrowth of the nail in the lateral sides of the nail folds. It is an extremely widespread disease. Furthermore, the nail fold becomes red and swollen with the start of an inflammation process causing severe pain. In the future, a chronic inflammatory process may develop.
After routine surgical treatment, a high frequency of relapses as well as a considerably lengthy and painful post-operative period is observed. We perform laser excision of nails with vaporization (burning-off) of the growth zone, which guarantees a 100% absence of relapses. Moreover, the post-operative period is smooth and painless. Scars rarely appear. The patient resumes regular activities by the second-third day.
