Fume Extraction for Podiatry & Laser Treatments

The PinPointe footlaser is an FDA-approved laser used for the treatment of nail fungus.

PinPointFootLaser.com explains that the “patented PinPointe FootLaser is a specially designed laser beam that goes through the nail and safely reduces the infection in the nail bed that cause Onychomycosis—more commonly known as nail fungus. It is FDA cleared and backed by significant clinical research.”
A primary respiratory safety control during this treatment that some providers choose to use is source capture fume extraction. This will remove fumes or particulates that might be released into the air during the laser procedure. The source capture system safely draws the contaminated air away from both operator and patient during the treatment and into the filter housing. The filtration system utilizes a high-quality HEPA filter that purifies the air up to 99.97% on particles 0.3 microns and larger.

Dr. Mark E. Spier’s practice, located in Reisterstown, Maryland, utilizes the Sentry Air Model SS-200-FS Floor Sentry Fume Extractor during his laser procedures:

“I have a busy laser practice in Maryland and have been using the Sentry fume extractor for nearly two years. The unit is quiet and efficient. The HEPA filter assures me that we are using the most advanced technology available to ensure patient and staff safety. I highly recommend this unit for any medical practice that desires worry free performance as an adjunct to their laser procedures.”
