A fungal nail is a nail affected by a fungal infection. This is also known as fungal nail. Fungal nails discolour, become thicker and brittle and in some cases bothersome in daily activities.
The fungal nail treatment is tackled by laser. On the affected nails, energy flashes are released that heat and kill the fungus / yeasts in the nail plate in a fraction of a few seconds. After which the affected nails will slowly grow out and a healthy nail will replace it. The optimal result is obtained from a series of successive treatments. At least 3 to 5 treatments at 6-week intervals are required!
What effect can you expect?
In order to properly follow the course of the treatment, photos are taken of the nails during the entire treatment process. The fungus will gradually fade after the laser treatments and a healthy nail will grow back. This process takes several months.
Important to know
It is important that you treat the nails at home with an anti-fungal gel (available in practice) to optimally support the treatment. Anti-fungal powder will also have to be used in the shoes. Dry the toes extra well after showering or bathing. Provide an extra pair of clean socks to put on after treatment. The treatment is most effective if the nails are thinly filed or milled (by a specialist pedicure).
