Treatment of Fungal nails

Administration and consents must be attended completed.

Photographic records of the lesions will be needed to be established.

We follow strict antiseptic and procedural protocols.

The nails are carefully thinned and cleared of all dead tissue in preparation of the nails to get them to an optimal state prior to lasing of the tissues.

The PinPointe FootLaser is then applied to each nail and its surrounding skin in a careful and prescribed manner. This takes variable amounts of time depending on the level of infection and the amount of digits involved. We then use the Lunula laser to treat the condition. This device treats one foot at a time using its two therapeutic wavelengths. Each Lunula cycle lasts 12 minutes.

Safety goggles are won throughout the PinPointe process and at the end of the lasing, surface antifungals applied and future antifungal procedures and post lase careexplained.

The procedure is an effective treatment and is part of a course of treatments, therefore follow-up and relasing is required. Fungal nail infections can be long established and be deeply entrenched, and some people can predisposed to the condition. One cannot say enough that nail fungus is a very difficult condition to treat.

Nails are normally quite slow to grow and it will take many months for the new nail to create full growth. Regeneration and regrowth of normal nail beds vary from person to person and in some cases the fungal infection causes some form of permanent damage.

Should you have any questions about the treatment we are more than happy to answer them.
