The time needed for the Q-Clear laser procedure largely depends on your individual condition. Severely infected nails that have developed complications will require a longer and more involved treatment than a small condition that was caught and addressed early. Uncomplicated procedures can take as little as a minute per nail. The vast majority of laser therapies can be completed in less than half an hour—rarely longer, and the procedure is pain-free. You can also return to your activities immediately following your procedure, so you won’t need additional time off work.
