Free your feet - Get rid of nail fungus
Updated: Dec 12, 2018
If you are one of the 15 to 25 percent of the population suffering from some kind of fungal nail infection, I’m sure you can empathise with this picture. Up until recently, nail fungus was an embarrassing and uncomfortable health problem with limited treatment options, disappointing results and uncomfortable side effects due to the consumption of oral fungicides. For many of you, the best option may have been to cover up and turn a blind eye.
However, you may have noticed I used the word, UNTIL RECENTLY. Covering up and pretending you don’t have a toe nail fungal infection is no longer the best option. Laser treatment is!
You see, our body is not capable of fighting fungus the way it does viruses or bacteria, so it will not go away without treatment. However, the fungal spores live underneath the nail in a very inaccessible area making it very difficult to treat. Topical treatments are available, but relatively ineffective, especially when the condition has progressed to the point where the nail has become unsightly and perhaps smelly. Oral anti-fungal treatments have a higher success rate, but as you can see from the British Association of Dermatologist, this rate is still low and the side effects can be nasty.
Laser treatment on the other hand works by emitting energy through light pulses penetrating deep in the nail where the fungus lives. This raises the temperature and destroys them, without damaging the surrounding tissue and without risk of re occurrence or side effects. This therapy is safe and very fast – taking approximately 10 minutes per foot to treat.
Once the fungus has been vaporised, you will begin to see results within several months as the diseased nail grows out and is replaced by a new, healthy one. It will take time, but it will work. Studies have shown the effectiveness of laser toenail treatments to be around 90%.
If you interested in improving the appearance of ageing, scarred, pigmented or stretched skin, micro-needling treatment is definitely for you.
