Fungal Nail Infection Treatment Info

Light form the laser is transmitted through the nail plate into the nail bed where it is absorbed by the pigmented yeast cells responsible for the infection.

The first part of the treatment heats up the area beneath the nail bed without affecting the surrounding tissue and breaks the hard outer shell of the fungal spore.

The second part of the treatment results in heat being absorbed by the fungal spore and de-activating it.

The nail is cleaned to make sure that the area is clear of nail polish, creams and powder. The hand-piece is passed over the infected nail a few times. The thicker the nail, he more the number of passes. Most treatment sessions take only a few minutes.

There maybe slight discomfort from the heat generated by the laser but it is not painful. This sensation is temporary and we can stop the procedure until you feel comfortable.

There are no long-term side-effects. The heat generated by the laser settles very quickly.

Most people need 3-4 treatments at 2-3 week intervals to treat the condition.

  • EXCELLENT SERVICE AND RESULTS

  • Can’t recommend Dr T enough, I walk in asking for help with saggy bits and lost volume and she takes one very experienced look at me, and declares what needs to be done. Which we do and I’m thrilled with the results. She does little and often, and you are completely involved in your consultation, although I completely trust her recommendations. Dr T is honest and forthcoming and she is always striving to update herself on all the latest developments, which we get to hear about.
  • There are never any ‘over the top’ results and the best part is when your friends comment on how good you look and isn’t your skin great, that’s exactly what I want to hear! You’ll put yourself in safe hands with Dr T and her team.
