Fungal nail infections can be difficult to treat through topical remedies and medications, these require constant application and potential side effects. Fungal nail treatment with laser is a clinically proven medical laser treatment that can treat the infection conveniently and effortlessly.
What causes a fungal nail infection?
A fungal nail infection occurs from the over-growth of fungi in, under, or on the nail. Fungi thrives in warm, moist environments, so this environment can cause them to naturally grow. The same type of fungi that cause athlete’s foot, jock itch, and ringworm can cause nail infections.
Fungi that are already present on, or in your body can instigate nail infections, they are also contagious and can be transferred from person to person which is why it is so important to treat the problem as soon as possible.
What types of nails can be treated?
- Dark, yellowing or green discolouration of the nails
- Thickened or distorted nails
- Crumbling or damaged nails
- Lifting of part or all of the nail
- White spotting or powdery appearance on top or underneath the nail
- Build-up of debris under the nail
- Lines or ridges in the nail
- Ugly nails
How does it work?
The nails need to be prepped prior to treatment by soaking them in warm water for 20 minutes then scrubbed with a pumice stone or file. A specialised laser is applied to the area using heat to kill the bacteria and virus that feeds the growth of the nail fungus. Three treatments are required to cure the infection at one month apart. Once the bacteria is removed from the area, the fungus will cease to grow and allow the nail to heal.
This treatment requires a personal consultation to assess suitability. During your consultation we will discuss your specific areas of concern, and answer all your questions. This will enable you to make an informed decision on how you wish to proceed.
