Harmony laser treatment fungal nail infection

Fungal Nail Infection Treatment in Surrey

Fungal nail infection is a common condition which is not serious but is difficult to treat. Traditional treatments with medications and topical treatments have limited success. Laser treatment with the Harmony Q-switched Nd-Yag and long-pulsed NdYag targets the source of the infection under the nail plate and clears the nail fungus in a few treatment sessions.

HOW DOES THE TREATMENT WORK?

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.

FAQ

We clean the nail to make sure that the area is clear of nail polish, creams and powder. Then, we pass the hand-piece 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 may be 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.

This treatment is not suitable for you if the following applies to you.

WHAT IS THE AFTER CARE?
