Nail Fungus Removal
All the Difference
Toenail fungus is the most common disease of the nails and constitutes about half of all nail abnormalities. The most common symptom of a fungal nail infection is the nail becoming thickened and discoloured: white, black, yellow or green. As the infection progresses the nail can become brittle, with pieces breaking off or coming away from the toe or finger completely. If left untreated, the skin can become inflamed and painful underneath and around the nail.
What To Expect
The treatment involves passing the laser beam over the infected nails and surrounding skin. Your technician will repeat this several times until enough energy has reached the nail bed. Your nail will feel warm during the treatment. A single treatment session can take approximately 40 minutes to treat 5-10 toe nails. Treatment times will vary. Most patients describe the procedure as being comfortable with a small hot pinch at the end that resolves quickly. As the nail grows you will see new, healthy toenails. Toenails grow slowly, so it may take up to 12 months to see an entirely clear toenail.
