The signs and symptoms can be subtle at first, but once established, the nails can become very badly damaged:
• Discoloured white, yellow, even turning brown
• Disfigured, thickened or twisted nails
• Crumbling, flaky or brittle nails
• Scalyness under the nail
• Distorted nail, lifting off the nail bed
• Loss of nail
Toenail fungus is unlikely to get better without treatment. Once established it will generally continue to get worse and risk infecting other nails too. Traditional treatments such as medications and topical paints/creams show only limited success in curing the condition and it will often recur.How do these infections develop?
Fungal nail infections develop when your feet are constantly warm and damp. You're more likely to get an infection if you wear trainers for a long time and have hot, sweaty feet.
Using long pulsed ND-Yag wavelength, the laser emit powerful bursts of light that go directly through the nail plate to the nail bed. The laser targets the infection beneath the nail, working to systematically destroy the fungus responsible for the infection.How does it feel?
During the treatment, you may feel a slight pressure on your nails and gradual heating or a snapping. However, there is no constant or extreme pain so no numbing or anesthesia is necessary.How many treatments will I need?
It depends on how severe your infection is, usually between 1-4 treatments every 2 weeksHow long will it take to see results?
Because nails grow slowly it can take up to 6 months before you nails look completely healthy, however improvements can be seen after 1 month.Preventing infections in the future
