What is Toe Nail Fungus (Onychomycosis)
Nail fungal infections are very common, medically they are known as Onychomycosis – affecting up to 10% of the entire UK population. These fungal nail infections are mainly found on toenails as opposed to fingernails. The laser treatment and end result are very similar.
how do I know if I have fungal nail?
Nail fungal infections are commonly unsightly. The fungal nail becomes thickened, discoloured and it can turn a yellow-orange, brown or even white. There can be black areas and bleeding as a result of trauma or areas looking a darkish green if there is an infection.
The fungal nail itself can become brittle, crumble and can lift up from the end of the digit. In a few cases, debris will collect beneath the nail and can smell unpleasant.
So what causes fungal nail?
Toe, or finger Nail fungal infections can be caused by a number of things. It could be anything from tightly fitting shoes, damp shoes or trainers, damage to the nail plate, or to its seal. Warm sweaty feet in shoes all day, skin infections, or athlete’s foot condition can invade the toenail resulting to the infection.
Other common causes include – Biting the nail, sharing nail varnish, or equipment, poor foot hygiene, psoriasis, a weak immune system, smoking and bad health.

fungal nail laser treatment
Our Laser fungus nail treatment begins with a free consultation and assessment of your affected fungal nails; we will answer questions and concerns you have. It is important to note that your condition must be diagnosed by a doctor or Podiatrist before we can start treatment. At the consultation, we would carry out a medical check, skin type assessment and then we would carry out a test patch area treatment.
Once we are happy with everything we can then start your treatment.
We laser the fungal nail starting from the outside to cover all the nail to ensure maximum results. Our laser fires light through the nail, allowing it to heat & kill the nail fungus with its high energy. The fungus is within the nail complex, which only the laser is able to target the fungal cell without harm or having to take oral prescriptions and topical products which do not have the ability to penetrate the nail bed and can be very toxic. The procedure itself is quick. We allow 30 minutes and will treat all nails. The results are very impressive compared to medications or other products.
Clients say that the nail fungus laser treatment feels like a warm sensation under the nail whiles the laser is being used over the nail and instantly cools as the laser is moved across. Our toenail fungus laser treatment will not harm your nail or surrounding skin and has no known side effects. the treatment is not surgical and no recovery period is given, it is also an approved treatment under the CE mark and FDA approved.
Our clients do not usually notice any visible changes to the nail instantly after a fungal laser treatment. Repeated sessions of the nail laser treatment may be needed commonly up to 2 treatments spread over 3-4 weeks results are typically seen once the nail has fully grown out which can take up to a few months.
