Fungal nail infections are a common problem, usually caused by the same fungus that causes athlete’s foot. It can be effectively treated using laser to destroy the fungus.
How does fungal nail laser treatment work?
Our laser applicator is placed on the nail and emits short bursts of light that help to destroy and eliminate the fungal infection.
How does the treatment feel?
A degree of heating and some discomfort is felt during treatment, however, we use a skin cooling device to make treatment as comfortable as possible.
Are there any side effects?
The treated area may be red, swollen and tender immediately after treatment but this usually subsides within a few hours. Unwanted reactions are rare but may include a small blister in the area around the nail, or temporary lightening or darkening of the skin. In rare cases, if the nail is very badly infected, the nail may fall off, but if this occurs, it will be replaced by a smoother, uninfected nail.
How long does treatment take?
Treatments generally take in the region of 30 minutes and up to six treatments may be required for optimum results. Due to the slow growth rate of toenails it may take several months for the full results to become apparent.
Starting from just £50 per treatment
Free one-to-one consultation
Before we do any treatments, we will carry out a free one-to-one consultation to discuss your medical history and check your suitability for the procedure. We will then tailor a treatment procedure specifically to you. If you wish to proceed with treatment, we will carry out a patch test at a cost of £45, which is then deducted from your first treatment.
