ARE YOU EMBARRASSED OF YOUR NAILS?
What is Nail Fungus?
Nail fungus is an infection that gets in through cracks in your nails or cuts in your skin. It makes your nail change colour and thickens. It can also be quite painful. Fungus thrives in damp, moist surroundings and because toes are often warm and damp, fungus grows well here. There are different kinds of fungi and sometimes yeast affect different parts of the nail. Left untreated, an infection could spread to toenails, skin, or fingernails.
In the past, the main treatment would be medication from the doctors which had severe side-effects which people did not want to risk. Another option would be surgery which would involve removing the nail to treat the fungus underneath. Now laser is widely available in the UK, more and more people are discovering and preferring this method.
How does the treatment work?
An Nd: YAG laser is used to destroy nail fungus and fungal spores. The laser practitioner repeatedly lasers over each nail, heating up the entire area of the nail, destroying the infection. This procedure is repeated several times during each sessions. Clients may find this slightly uncomfortable, therefore, a cooling device is used.
When will I see results?
Clients will not see an immediate result as the nail must grow out clear to show the treatment has been successful. Results vary person to person and aftercare plays a vital part in the overall outcome.
How many treatments will I need?
On average 6 – 8 treatments are needed 2 – 3 weeks apart. Number of treatments depend highly on how the nails are looked after throughout treatment. Maintenance treatment may be required.
Is it painful?
The treatment is described as uncomfortable as the nails need to be heated enough to destroy the fungal infection. However, this discomfort can be resolved by using a cooling device.
