FUNGAL NAIL TREATMENT

 

LASER FUNGAL TREATMENT

Toenail fungus is easy to spot, but difficult to treat. Successful over-the-counter treatments may be able to diminish or eliminate the visible symptoms, but nail fungus often comes back, and complete eradication is an ongoing battle. Unfortunately, most home remedies and over the counter medications result in little to no benefit.
Harmony XL Pro kills the fungus with Dye-PL and LP-YAG lasers. The targeted IPL and laser utilises light energy beams to create heat in short bursts. The heat treats the fungus at the source, below the nail plate. Microsecond pulses of light energy are set on high repetition to gradually heat and completely kill all trace of fungal organisms.

FAQ

HOW DOES IT WORK?


This FDA-cleared laser treatment for toenail fungus is virtually painless. It can be used to treat a single nail or multiple affected areas for both toenails and fingernails. As a patient, you will probably feel nothing during the short treatment other than a comfortable sense of warmth. And only at the IPL or laser treatment site. The energy works beneath the nail plate therefore the surface of the skin and nail is unaffected . The treatment creates sub-dermal heating that destroys the fungus.




HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?


You can enjoy immediate results after just one short treatment with less yellowing and improved skin texture around the nail. Most cases require up to 5 or 7 sessions, but each session is very short. Conveniently, this treatment is an outpatient procedure with absolutely no downtime. Come in for treatment during your lunch break and you can immediately get back to work with no symptoms!




WHY DO I NEED TO HAVE A PATCH TEST PRIOR TO TREATMENT?


All patients are required to have a 24hr patch test prior to any of our laser treatments. This is so we can quickly identify if you have sensitive skin towards laser and to avoid any adverse reactions.

WHAT IS THE AFTERCARE ADVICE?


After treatment, we ask that you do not to wear tight footwear for the first 48 hours. You should also apply an anti-fungal cream to the affected area twice daily for 3 months. Also, use an anti-fungal powder in your shoes. Results are usually visible from the very first treatment and increase throughout the course until the infection is completely gone. The healthy nail will start to regrow in the weeks and months after treatment and should eventually look just entirely ‘back to normal’.
