Fungal Nail Treatment

 Fungal Nail Treatment

Embarrassed to show your feet in public due to a fungal toenail issue?  Here at Sensius, our team of professionals are trained and ready to assist you in eliminating that pesky toenail fungus once and for all. 

Treatment for Fungal nail infections are carried out using our state of the art ND:YAG Candela Laser Machine. Even if it is just one toe that has a fungal infection, we treat all 10 toes with the laser to ensure there is no chance of the infection spreading.

The treatment will generally take about 10-15 minutes per visit, and treatments are spaced approximately 30 days apart. Sometimes the fungus is effectively treated and destroyed after one visit, but it may require multiple treatments.

Symptoms of Nail Funal Infections:

  • Discoloured Nails
  • Yellow Streaks under the nail
  • Distorted or thickened nails
  • Brittle or crumbly nails
  • Nails separating from the under-lying skin
  • Build-up of debris (skin or nail fragments) under the nail
  • White spots or streaks on the nail surface

Our Laser fungal treatment is simple, safe, virtually painless, does not harm surrounding tissue, requires no anaesthesia or painkillers and most importantly it works!

What is Fungus Nail (Onychomycosis)?

This common problem occurs in millions of people worldwide. Fungus nail is an infection of the nail caused by a Dermatophyte. This Dermatophyte lives within the keratin of the nail, burrowing and causing destruction. A major psychological aspect of having unsightly fungus is embarrassment of showing nails in public, going to salons, wearing open shoes or going to the beach. Fungus can also spread to other nails or possibly spread to others around you as it lives on almost anything and is everywhere.

Why do nails become infected with fungus?

  • Chronic athlete’s foot
  • Excessive perspiration
  • Trauma from injury, sports or ill-fitting shoes
  • Over zealous or unsanitary Pedicures
  • Chronic use of nail polish
  • Systemic conditions like diabetes or circulation problems
  • Conditions that compromise immune system

How long will it take for the nail to look better?

Toe-nails can take many months to grow. As the fungus is destroyed, initially the nail will appear less brittle, stronger and with less discoloration and less odour. Full effect of the treatment wont be seen until the new nail starts to grow.

Clearing of the nail usually starts around 3 months and continues until nails grows out fully in about 9-12 months.

Is it the treatment Painful?

No pain is involved, the sensation felt by most people is a build-up of heat.

What is the recovery period?

None at all, this treatment requires no down time.

Is it safe?

Yes. This treatment is safe once clients communicate with their therapist in relation to medical history and medication.

Does the Fungus re-occur?

Fungus can always return because of its presence in the surrounding environment. We recommend that shoes get sterilised and all socks, tights etc get thrown out that were worn previous to receiving laser treatment.  Proper care and hygiene recommendations after the laser will greatly reduce the chance of infection re-occurring.
