Laser Fungal Nail Treatment
Toenail fungus infections (Onychomycosis) are unsightly and embarrassing - the nail becomes yellow, thickened and hard to cut. Toenail fungus infection is very common; it affects about 15% of the population and until recently the only treatments available were prescription medicines, some with unpleasant side-effects.
Fungal infected toenails are one of the common reasons people visit dermatologists. Laser Dermatology offers laser treatment for this annoying condition under the supervision of specialist dermatologists and registered nurses.
Laser Dermatology's laser toenail fungus treatment is indicated where prescription treatment has failed or for people who are concerned about the potential side-effects of some of the available treatments.
As nails grow very slowly, the treatment must be repeated at 4 weekly intervals. After 3 months the progress is reassessed and another cycle can be repeated if necessary.
The treatment takes about 30 minutes, is not uncomfortable and nail polish can be applied afterwards.
Nail care and diseases of the nails have always been a large part of dermatology practice.
Laser Dermatology offers 20 years of laser experience combined with professional training under the Australasian College of Dermatologists.
