We offer a patient-friendly method with a state-of-the-art revolutionary laser treatment that can eliminate fungal nail infections (Onychomycosis) safely, quickly and effectively.
Common causes of fungal nail infection (Onychomycosis):
Fungal nail infections are usually caused by damage made to the nail plate or seal, allowing the fungus to
invade the nail. Feet stuck inside a pair of shoes for a whole day, can cause warm and dampness; which then provide the perfect habitat for fungus to thrive. Other common causes also include: diabetes, biting of nails, foot trauma, smoking and immune suppression.
How does a Laser Fungal nail infection treatment work and what is involved in the procedure?
We use a Nd-YAG Laser`SClearSteps Onychomycosis Treatment, which is performed in three simple steps:
Step 1: File down the Nail. During onychomycosis, the nail will become deformed & overgrown, and it may also thicken. Filing down the nail allows laser light to fully penetrate into the treatment site.
Step 2: Administer Nd:YAG laser pulses in a circular pattern covering the entire nail. Slightly overlap the beam so that the nail is fully covered. The laser gently heats the infected nail evenly throughout its depth causing weakening and killing of the fungus. The patient should feel a slight heating sensation throughout the nail.
Step 3: Target Nd:YAG laser pulses around the perimeter of the nail bed and around the finger or toe. Often parasitic fungus has worked its way beyond the nail bed and needs to be eliminated in the tissue surrounding the nail to prevent recurrence.
