Fungal Nail Treatment Adelaide - Treat Yellow or Discoloured Toenails
Technology Techniques for Fungal Nails
Fungal Nails (Onychomycosis) is one of the most persistent difficult conditions to eradicate. Therefore, we have invested approximately a quarter of a million dollars into acquiring the most advanced state of the art laser technology to combat this condition.
Advancing technology now provides individuals with another option to treat your embarrassing nail fungus. The experienced podiatrists at the Adelaide Fungal Nail Laser Clinic use the latest laser technology to treat fungal nail infections.
Nail Fungus Treatment Options
Many people ignore the problem as they do not cause any pain in the mild stages.
However, if left untreated, the fungus will migrate from the tip of nail towards the root. The nail may become more discoloured, ingrowing and thicker, resulting in pain. Also, it may spread to other toes and to the other foot.
There are plenty of over-the-counter topical antifungals on chemist shelves.
They are a convenient, lower cost option, most of which promise more than they deliver. Sadly, if you have used them, they have a very low success rate as they do not penetrate the nail effectively to treat the fungus. We will be able to give you options that can be used. We stock attractive nail polish which aren’t available at chemists.
Oral medications which treat the nails systemically have a decent success rate and require a course of 3 or 6 months.
Laser treatment for fungal nails works by combining stimulation of the blood vessels supplying the nails, thus providing increased blood flow to the new growing nail plate and heat to kill the fungal organism as well. This leads to a healthier regrowth of the nail.
Types of Lasers
Class-2 and Class-4 K-Laser
At Adelaide Fungal Nail Laser Clinic we use the Class-2 Erchonia® Lunula Laser® and the Class-4 K-Laser which are breakthrough lasers bringing new hope to people suffering from stubborn onychomycosis. Combining a Class-2 and a Class-4 Laser it enables us to use a total of 6 independent wavelengths at every appointment and range between low and high level power.
What Makes Us Different
One of the major differences separating us from other clinics who have just the Lunula Laser is that the podiatrist will see you and your nails every visit rather than an unqualified receptionist or beauty therapist putting you on the machine. This also enables you to be able to claim on health insurance or Medicare if your doctor has provided you with a referral.
