Fungal nails can be unsightly and embarrassing. Often described as “rotten nails”, patients may describe their nails as varying in colour, from a yellow through to a brown discolouration. The nail may also look like it is thickened or even eaten away.

How does Laser work.
When your nails are infected with fungus not only is the fungus alive and living in and on your nails but it is also breeding. The “eggs” of a fungus are called spores and they are completely invisible to the naked eye.
The spores or eggs are very strong and despite numerous potions creams and paints on most occasions they do very little to kill the spores of the fungus living in your nail.
Laser treatment passes a beam of laser light at very high spectrum over the infected area. This laser heats the inside of the nail and the tissue underneath gently raising the temperature to between 45 and 50 degrees. This kills both the fungus and its spores or eggs that are in and around the nail. This laser is specially calibrated to kills both the fungus and its spores.
The laser is safe and painless and takes approximately 30 to 45 minutes to treat all 10 toe nails. There is no need for anesthetics or operations and the treatment is performed in our specially prepared treatment rooms.
Feet ready for summer
Ugly yellow and unsightly thickened toe nails can stop even the prettiest feet from heading to the beach. Treatments for nail fungus will kill the fungus and its spores immediately. However the nail will take a number of weeks and months to grow out and become completely clear again. Its important to undertake this treatment as soon as possible if you are looking forward to a function where you can show your toes off and at their best.
There are other cosmetic treatment s that can be undertaken while the nails grows out which can immediately make the regrowing nail look healthy and attractive again. Please ask your podiatrist for advice on these during your consultation if you would like more information.
