Healthy, Clear Nails Made Simple
The Erchonia Lunula Laser uses low-level laser light to treat foot fungus, and requires very little time or set-up for physicians or their staff. It’s the only system you can turn on and walk away—the device is already pre-set. In fact, as little as four 12-minute sessions are needed to treat the affected area.
The Erchonia Lunula Laser is the simple and painless solution to effectively treat onychomycosis. Sixty-seven percent (67%) of all study treated toe nails evaluated in this study met the study individual success criteria. The average clear nail growth was an increase in 5.18mm*.
The Lunula Laser® Advantage:
No pain, no downtime, and no risk // Proven effective // No consumables for increased ROI // Clearing of the nail bed within six months
As you will quickly learn, Lunula is supported by an unwavering clinical foundation of both histological and clinical evidence that upholds the viability of this approach and ensures an effective treatment for your patients suffering with onychomycosis. In fact, Lunula is so unique, Erchonia has filed multiple method and device patents specific to Lunula.

BioFlex Laser Therapy
BioFlex Laser Therapy Training is now available for Podortho® Nurses (complementary certification for OPNA members)
Low level laser therapy (LLLT) now known as photobiomodulation therapy (PBMT), is a stimulatory, healing therapy based on the principle of increasing cellular metabolism via photochemical reactions in mitochondria. Specific wavelengths and dosages in the red and near infrared range are known to accelerate tissue healing, decrease inflammation, pain, and edema in a non-invasive manner with no known side effects and few contraindications.
PBMT has been historically indicated for wound care including lower limb diabetic ulcers and recalcitrant wounds secondary to circulatory conditions. Growing evidence-based peer reviewed research has also resulted in PBMT being indicated for many commonly treated foot and lower limb conditions treated by Podortho® Nurses including ligament sprains, arthritis, muscle strains, cartilage tears, tendinopathies, neuropathies, fascial tears, compartment syndromes and other commonly treated injuries and disorders.
This BIOFLEX laser therapy training course is designed specifically for Podortho® Nurses and provides fundamental education in PBMT that includes mechanisms of actions, physics, dosaging, parameters, safety, history, research, and clinical applications. The goal of this training is to ensure the Podortho® Nurse has developed the knowledge, skill and posses’ superior competencies to treat with PBMT in their individual clinical practice.
