Laser Hair Removal
BOOK AN APPOINTMENT
Fungal Therapy is a non-invasive, fast, and painless way to treat nail fungus. The laser used for the treatment is able to penetrate the nail, which allows it to reach down into the fungus, and to destroy it.
It is a more convenient alternative to Oral Anti-fungals, and lacks the potential side effects that these pharmaceuticals carry with them.
Fungal Therapy is a quick and easy procedure. Using the laser, the nail fungus can be treated effectively, and does not require any down time for recovery. The treatment is performed in about 15-20 minutes, and you are able to return to whatever they were doing that day, as there is no pain associated with this treatment.

6 Months After Treatment
5 months after treatment
An infection of nail fungus occurs when fungi infect the nails. A nail fungal infection may begin as a white or yellow spot under the tip of your fingernail or toenail. As the nail fungus spreads deeper into your nail, it may cause your nail to discolour, thicken and develop crumbling edges — an unsightly and potentially painful problem.
Discoloured (usually white or yellow), brittle, crumbly, or with rough, jagged edges;
Thick, dull, and lacklustre (without shine);
Separated from the nail bed, curled up or down, or distorted in shape;
Possible pain in the affected nails;
Debris may build up under the nails.
The laser beam is passed over the infected nails and surrounding skin, repeatedly until enough energy has reached the nail bed. Your nail will feel warm during the treatment.
The number of treatments will vary individually. After the initial treatment, a review is carried out about 3 months later, to see if more treatments are required. Within 3 months, the nail will have grown out by about a third. After 6 months, the nail will have grown out halfway. As the nail grows out, the new nail growing should be healthier.
Immediately following the procedure, your nail may feel warm for a few minutes. In time, your nail should begin to grow out clear of any fungus, and you will begin to see new, healthy nail. Fungal infections may slow the growth of your nail, so resulting time frames will vary. On average, most clients will see results within about 12 weeks.
The infection improves after one treatment, but you will need to continue with care techniques to reduce recurrence of the infection. There is a chance of re-infection because the fungus is present everywhere in the environment. One or more types of Fungi is present on our skin, and if damp moist conditions are present fungus will grow.
