Fungal Toenail

This is a very common condition but with a reputation of being resistant to the usual treatment options. Although we can advise you on the best topical and oral treatment options, you may wish to consider more definitive treatment: Laser therapy.

This aims to kill the fungus in your nail and surrounding tissue. It will however, take some months before you can be sure the infection has resolved, as the appearance of your nail will not immediately change after treatment. Although we hope to treat you successfully with a single session, you may need 2-3 treatments.

We also offer a fungicidal footwear treatment service. Sufferers of fungal foot infections, will usually have fungus living in their shoes. Eradicating this fungus is an important part of the overall treatment plan.

ClearChoice

ClearChoice is an FDA cleared, advanced protocol that combines two laser technologies for the treatment of nail fungus (onychomycosis).
The ClearChoice treatment for nail fungus is in most instances a series of 2-3, quick treatment sessions, with minimal discomfort and no side effects. The lasers target the fungus located deep beneath the nail plate, eradicating the source of the infection with no harmful effects on healthy tissue. 

ClearChoice™ utilizes two distinct and proven laser technologies:

  • Q-Swithed Nd:YAG
  • Long Pulsed Nd:YAG

The lasers emit powerful bursts of light that transmit through the nail plate to the nail bed to be absorbed by the pigmented yeasts responsible for the infection. Non-specific heat conduction is then introduced by the Nd:YAG 1064 laser beam where the unwanted organism is thermally deactivated as the target area absorbs the beam of radiation and transfer the thermal energy to the unwanted organism. Against this kind of laser, nail fungus doesn’t stand a chance.
