Fast and effective toe and finger nail fungus treatment

Do you dread the summer when it’s time to get our your flip-flops, sandals, and peep-toe shoes? Instead of pretty nails and toe rings, your feet are showing ugly toenail fungus. You’re certainly not alone and almost 50% of nail disorders are fungal infections. Symptoms of this unsightly disease include brittleness, discolouration, thickening and crumbling of the nail, as well as debris under the nail itself. Toenail fungus infections used to be difficult to treat but thanks to new therapies such as Fox Laser Therapy there is a solution which will permanently heal your nails.

Fox Laser Therapy for chronic toenail fungus (Onychomycosis) really is one of the most easiest and effective ways to treat this disease and offers a painless, drug-free way to eliminate nail fungus once and for all. Our trained doctors operate the lasers themselves and patients can expect to see improvements within just three months of receiving treatment. The results are really effective and depending on how severe the case, improvements can sometimes be seen in as little as 3 weeks.

How Fox Laser Therapy Works

This innovative technique works by killing the fungus which lives in and beneath the toenail. During treatment a laser beam is slowly directed across the nail bed targeting the pathogens which cause the toenail fungus and promoting further nail growth to come in healthy and clear. You may feel a warm tingling sensation during the procedure but this only lasts for 1 to 2 minutes per nail. Since nails grow very slowly you won’t see an immediate improvement but as your nails continue to grow you will see clear nail starting to appear at the base of the nail. Most patients only require one treatment and this is followed by a three month check-up to determine whether the fungus has been eradicated.

Preparing for the procedure

Before attending the clinic for treatment you’ll need the surface of your nail beds filed down thinly by a nail technician or a podiatrist. You’re also requested to refrain from using nail polish/and or nail polish remover for 24 hours prior to the procedure.

Benefits of Fox Laser Therapy

• No anaesthetic required
• Quick and easy to perform
• Safe and effective
• Will not harm the nail or skin
• Shoes and nail polish can be worn directly after treatment

How long does it take?

The treatment takes approximately 30 – 45 minutes. In order for it to be successful we treat all of your toenails since even if just one nail is infected there is a strong chance that the infection will spread to the others as well. There is no recovery period – patients simply walk in and walk out.

Following the procedure shoes and nail polish can be worn immediately. We do however recommend that

• Socks and stockings are washed to prevent re-infection
• Feet and shoes are sprayed with tea tree oil
• Nail files, scissors, and nail clippers are disinfected
• All footwear is sanitised using the SteriShoe sanitiser which destroys up to 99% of microorganisms found in shoes

Why choose laser treatment over drug treatment?

Some oral anti-fungal medications can be toxic and may cause serious medical health problems. Because of this patients that are taking oral medications are asked to undergo routine blood tests to ensure that their liver hasn’t been damaged during treatment. Conversely laser treatments are totally drug free and pose no health associated risks. In addition, lasers used to treat nail fungus are not associated with any known side effects, injuries, or adverse reactions.
