Time to treat your fungal nail infection?

We are specialists at helping to treat fungal nail infections. Laser light is absorbed by the water in the skin under the nail, helping to eliminate a fungal infection. 

How does the treatment work?

Light is absorbed by the water in the skin underneath and around the nail creating heat. This heat helps to destroy the dermatophytes and eliminate the fungal infection. The laser applicator is placed on the nail and a short pulse of light is released. The entire nail bed and nail matrix is then treated in this way.

How many treatments are necessary?

Treatments are conducted every 6 to 8 weeks depending on the area being treated. The number of treatments required varies, although typically 2 – 6 treatments are needed for optimum results. These results become apparent as the nail grows out, and due to the slow rate of growth of toenails it may take several months for the full results to become apparent.

How does the treatment feel?

A degree of heating and some discomfort is felt during treatment. However, a skin cooling device can be used to make treatment as comfortable as possible.

Are there any side effects?

The side-effects of laser treatments are generally mild and transient (unlike the side-effects of some of the medications used to treat fungal infections). The area may be red immediately after treatment and may be a little swollen and tender, but this usually subsides within a few hours. Unwanted reactions are rare but may include a small blister in the area around the nail, or temporary lightening or darkening of the skin. In rare cases, if the nail is very badly infected, the nail may fall off, but if this occurs, it will be replaced by a smoother, uninfected nail.

How long does treatment take?

Treatments generally take in the region of 30 minutes.
