Our Fungal Nail Therapy: Your Path to Healthier Nails

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.

Refresh Your Feet with Fungal Nail Therapy in 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! Should you contract an infection, numerous fungal nail treatments exist to assist you. These strategies are all designed to minimise your symptoms’ intensity and duration, aiding your nail’s healthy growth. Neglecting a fungal nail infection could result in the deformation or destruction of the nail, or in cases of a compromised immune system, a bacterial skin infection could develop. Prompt attention to any nail issues is crucial to mitigate potential complications.

Discovering the 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

Essentially, Lunula laser utilises low-level laser light to strengthen your body’s natural defence system, facilitating it to battle the microbes instigating toenail fungus.

The Lunula Laser Process

At Doubleview Podiatry, our preferred tool to combat fungal nail infections is the Lunula Laser. It’s proven to be a highly comfortable option compared to others available, earning the trust of numerous clients. Here’s a glimpse of what the procedure entails:

1. Testing For Fungus

Not all discoloured or deformed nails can be attributed to fungal infection, so we ensure we’re targeting the right ailment through thorough examination.

2. Forming A Treatment Plan

Next, we collaborate with you to devise a treatment strategy to tackle your fungal nail infection. While the Lunula laser suits most individuals, we always value and consider your personal preferences for your treatment.

3. Laser Treatment

The actual laser treatment is rather quick, with about 12 minutes needed per foot. We’ll guide you in placing your foot within the apparatus, and then it’s merely a waiting game while the lasers do their job!

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.
