Fungal Nail Treatment Floreat

Experience Transformation with Doubleview Podiatry’s Fungal Nail Solution

Fungal nail ailments are a frequent cause for podiatry visits. Still, it may not seem that way when it’s impacting you personally. If you’re feeling solitary in dealing with a fungal nail condition, know there’s no reason for such sentiments. Onychomycosis— better known as fungal nail infections— are surprisingly commonplace, impacting nearly 10% of individuals in Perth. 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.

Give Your Feet the Care They Deserve with Floreat’s Fungal Nail Treatment

Fungi coming into contact with a nail, particularly toenails but also possibly fingernails, can lead to fungal nail infections. Commonly, this transpires in damp and warm public areas such as gyms, swimming pools, and changing rooms. Yet, factors like sustaining a nail injury, wearing tight shoes for a prolonged duration, having sweaty feet, or suffering from conditions like diabetes could also pave the way for a fungal nail infection. Given that anyone can contract a fungal nail infection, prevention is indeed the best strategy! 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.

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

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

The Lunula Laser is a favoured treatment modality for fungal nail infections at Doubleview Podiatry. It has been demonstrated to be far more agreeable than a host of other choices on offer, making it a popular selection for many of our clients. Here’s how the process unfolds:

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

Following this, we cooperate with you to establish a treatment blueprint for your fungal nail infection. Although the Lunula laser is generally suitable, we highly regard your viewpoint on your treatment.

3. Laser Treatment

The process of the laser treatment is quite expedient, approximately taking 12 minutes per foot. We aid you in orienting your foot within the machine, and then it’s just about patiently waiting as the lasers take over!

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.
