CHICO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PinPointe™ FootLaser™ today announced that it has received CE Mark approval for its new treatment for toenail fungus (Onychomycosis), certifying that it has met EU consumer and health safety standards and can be offered by certified health care providers throughout Europe.

PinPointe FootLaser uses a patented laser technology to treat toenail fungus (Onychomycosis), an infection that afflicts an estimated 900 million people around the world. With PinPointe FootLaser, patients are treated quickly and effectively with no oral or systemic drugs and no anesthesia. PinPointe’s laser light passes through the toenail without causing damage to the nail or surrounding skin. The procedure allows the new nail to grow in healthy and clear.
