Fungal Nail Treatment Perth – Scarborough
Say goodbye to fungal nails today.
Fungal Nail Treatment Is Here To Save The Day
Fungal nail treatment is a common reason people visit a podiatrist, but it may not feel like it if it’s affecting you. If you feel alone in having a fungal nail infection, rest assured you don’t need to feel that way anymore. Fungal nail infections— also known as onychomycosis— affect up to 10% of people in Perth, making them much more common than many people realise.
If you have thickened, discoloured, or misshapen nails, you may have a fungal nail infection. Fungal nail infections may also cause the nail to become brittle, crumbly, or ragged, and can lead to an odour and separation from the nail bed. These symptoms may make you feel self-conscious and limit your footwear choices, as well as affect your overall self-esteem. If this sounds like what you’re experiencing, fungal nail treatment may be just what you need to have you feeling confident again.
Treat Your Feet With Fungal Nail Treatment Perth
Fungal nail infections occur when a fungus comes into contact with a nail (usually a toenail, but it can also affect fingernails). This often happens in warm and moist public spaces like swimming pools, gyms, and locker rooms. However, you can also get a fungal nail infection if you injure your nail, wear closed shoes for extended periods of time, have sweaty feet, or have a condition that increases your chances of developing a fungal nail infection such as diabetes. Anybody can get a fungal nail infection, so it’s best to try to prevent one wherever possible!
If you do develop an infection, there are many forms of fungal nail treatment available to help. These are all aimed towards reducing the severity and longevity of your symptoms, helping the nail to grow as healthily as possible. If you don’t treat a fungal nail infection, the nail could become deformed or destroyed, or if you have a weakened immune system, it may also lead to a bacterial skin infection. It’s important to address any nail problems as soon as possible to reduce your risk of complications.
All About Lunula Laser
Lunula laser treatment is a low-level laser treatment that most patients find painless and even comfortable. All you need to do is sit back and relax while the lasers get to work! Two lasers rotate over the nail, and together they weaken the structure of the fungal spores that caused the infection.
As well as not being able to feel the lasers while they work, Lunula laser offers additional benefits such as:
- Not interfering or interacting with any systemic medicine
- No chance of liver toxicity
- No chance of developing microbial resistance
- Doesn’t produce any heat
- Doesn’t produce any laser fumes
- Drug-free treatment
- Chemical-free treatment
Overall, Lunula laser uses low-level laser light to enhance your body’s natural defence mechanisms, encouraging it to combat the microbes that cause toenail fungus.
The Lunula Laser Process – Laser Nail Treatment
At Doubleview Podiatry, we frequently use the Lunula Laser to treat fungal nail infections. This method has shown to be much more tolerable than many other options on the market, making it the go-to for many of our clients. The process looks like:
1. Testing For Fungus
Not every discoloured or misshapen nail is caused by fungus, so we check to ensure we’re treating the correct condition.
2. Forming A Treatment Plan
We then work with you to form a treatment plan to address your fungal nail infection. The Lunula laser is suitable for most people, but of course we would like your input on your own treatment.
3. Laser Treatment
The laser treatment itself is relatively quick, taking approximately 12 minutes per foot. We’ll help you position your foot in the machine, and then all you need to do is wait for the lasers to do what they do!
4. Review And Assess
The initial course of Lunula laser treatment involves four sessions, one week apart. We’ll advise you of how long your overall treatment is expected to take, and will review and assess your nail as we go.

Your Fungal Nail Treatment Questions Answered
- How long does it take for Vicks VapoRub to cure toenail fungus?
If you choose to use Vicks VapoRub in an effort to combat your toenail fungus, this method may take about six months or longer and in some cases, may not provide any benefit at all.
- How do I get rid of nail fungus ASAP?
Lunula laser is known to be one of the quickest ways to get rid of nail fungus, as is Canesten® Fungal Nail Treatment Set. Both options may take as little as four weeks to eliminate nail fungus.
- What is the fastest way to cure toenail fungus?
Each person’s fungal nail infection is different, so there’s not one overall fastest option. Some people may find that Lunula laser works quickest for them, whereas others may find a topical treatment such as Canesten® the fastest treatment option.
- What is the most effective treatment for toenail fungus?
Lunula laser is often heralded as the most effective treatment for toenail fungus. Other options have been shown to produce serious side effects or not even work at all, and early fungal nail laser systems often generated uncomfortable heat. Thanks to advances in technology and modern medicine, Lunula laser is considered to be the most effective option today.
