Take your first step towards fixing your fungal nails with our fungal laser therapy

Fungal nails (or onychomycosis) is an infection of the nail, nail bed and the nail plate under the surface of the nail.

The infection is caused by a group of fungi known as dermophytes. These tiny organisms thrive on skin and keratin, which is the main component of hair and nails. When dermophytes take hold, the nail often discolours.

Eventually, the nail can thicken, harden, become brittle and even fall off. The resulting thicker nails are difficult to trim and make walking painful when wearing shoes.

This nail infection can spread to your other toenails, and even your fingernails. If left untreated, the infection could spread and make it uncomfortable to walk in enclosed footwear

It can start as a mere blemish and turn into ugly, embarrassing nails. This aggravating disease can take months to control if it’s left ignored.

Fungal Nails-Information for your first appointment

This appointment is for fungal laser therapy. We recommend two appointments one month apart and each appointment is for 60 minutes.

Our tailored treatment includes:

  • Tidying up your nails – which includes trimming your nails and filing away any rough edges
  • Reducing any thickness that has built up in your nail
  • Slowly and carefully passing our laser across each of your nails in turn, in a tight cross-hatch pattern to kill the fungus in your nail bed
  • Advice to help you avoid reinfection
  • We also offer a free service to sterilise your shoes

Initial appointment with these services $350. Second appointment $250.

SYMPTOMS

  • A progressive change in your toenail’s quality and colour. Often there is a spreading stain that starts at the top of your nail and works its way back towards the base of your nail. Your nail can turn white, brown or yellow.
  • Chalky nails that break easily.
  • A change in the shape of your nail; your nails can become totally misshapen and ingrown.
  • Thickening of your nail. Your nails grow progressively thicker and harder to manage on your own.

COMMON CAUSES

  • If your nail is damaged, it can be more vulnerable to a fungal infection.
  • Pedicures—make sure the salon is sterilsing their instruments in a dental-grade autoclave.
  • Sharing nail scissors and clippers with others.
  • A compromised immune system can increase your chance of a fungal infection.
  • Having bare feet in an area infected with fungus, such as in a gym shower.
