Medicine has significantly benefited from the use of lasers, especially in dermatology. The technology evolution has permitted the development of advanced laser treatments also against fungal nail infections. At Renew Skin & Health Clinic in Leamington Spa, medical cosmetic specialists successfully use ND:Yag laser technology for multiple cosmetic treatments such as treating problematic nails and fungal toenail infection.
Onychomycosis is the most frequent nail disease constituting approximately half of the nail anomalies; it is in fact a chronic mycotic infection fo the nail that can have serious consequences on the elderly, diabetics and people suffering from immunosuppression.
The efficiency of modern laser treatment options against onychomycosis is relatively low, firstly because deep nail penetration and fungal germ destruction are impossible and secondly because oral antifungal agents are toxic presenting great risks for your health. That’s why we at Renew Skin & Health Clinic suggest and provide a new, alternative, much more efficient treatment to cure onychomycosis, namely the Nd:Yag laser treatment that provide a safe solution for treating the fungal nail infection.
The Nd:Yag laser therapy presents unique properties that make it different from other laser systems previously used in medicine. The purpose of our therapies in medical cosmetics, especially of laser therapies is to have a selective effect on the tissues and organs, destroying fungal nail infections without causing pain or damage to the adjacent tissues. Thus, a focused Nd:Yag laser beam is applied over the entire nail surface and its surrounding area, reacting directly with the fungus. Through the destruction of fungal cells, the nail tissue can regenerate; hence the nail will heal and reattach itself to the nail bed during its normal development. The ND:Yag laser therapy has no negative effect on the skin or healthy nails and does not require anesthesia. The laser treatment procedure is non-surgical and there is no recovery period or side effects on activity after treatment.
With the Renew Skin & Health Clinic cosmetic services, you avoid most risks or side effects during the dynamic cure against infected nails. Some patients may feel a slight heating of the nail, in any case it has been shown that photo-thermal temperatures reached during treatment fall below a potentially critical physiological level.
The onychomycosis laser treatment process includes the Renew Skin & Health Clinic specialists’ proper examination of your medical history and a physical checkup, a discussion on all treatment options, including benefits and risks, informative consent, pre-treatment photographs of the affected nails, mechanical debridement of excessive nail thickness and application of laser treatment on it and the surrounding skin area.
The entire nail infection treatment is provided by Renew Skin & Health Clinic, the procedures being performed entirely by experienced laser specialists because we always pay attention to our patients’ health and the quality of our services, the treated nails are reexamined 6-8 months when their length will have increased by about 6-8 mm and progress can be monitored through photographic comparison.
The ND:yag laser treatment against onychomycosis (fungal toenail infection) is safe, can be effective after a number of session, eliminating all the germs that cause the infection. You will not have to ingest various types of drugs anymore and side effects will be minimised. The procedure is painless, non-invasive and quick determining an efficient treatment of onychomycosis in a much shorter interval of time than traditional treatments which can take up to several years for the healing process to be completed.
