Yes. Once the chemical reaction has occurred, it's virtually impossible to restore reliable operation. If the board(s) are immediately thoroughly flushed with distilled water to wash out contaminants then pure alcohol to sequester the water, and dried, preferably using compressed air to drive moisture from nooks & crannies, it may survive. Once corrosion is established, fine tracks can be eaten through, conductive paths established beneath surface mounted components, switch & socket contacts corroded etc.
The motherboard does show some corrosion - is any too much?
