Our Fungal Nail Therapy: Your Path to Healthier Nails

As a typical concern, fungal nail therapy often brings people to a podiatrist’s office. If you’re dealing with such an issue, you’re definitely not alone. Don’t let the prevalence of onychomycosis— another term for fungal nail infections— make you feel isolated. In fact, around 10% of Perth’s population is known to experience this, showing it’s more prevalent than you might think. Should your nails appear thick, discoloured, or deformed, it could be a sign of a fungal nail infection. The condition might also result in brittle, crumbling or uneven nails, accompanied by an unusual odour and the nail separating from its bed. These symptoms can lead to self-consciousness, restrict your footwear options, and impact your self-esteem. If these conditions resonate with your experience, the appropriate fungal nail treatment could restore your confidence.

Treat Your Feet With Fungal Nail Treatment Perth

Fungal nail infections arise when a fungus finds its way to a nail, usually a toenail, though fingernails can also be affected. Such instances are common in warm, moist communal spaces like locker rooms, swimming pools, and gyms. Additionally, situations such as nail injuries, continuous wearing of enclosed footwear, sweaty feet, or pre-existing conditions like diabetes can heighten the risk of acquiring a fungal nail infection. As these infections can affect anyone, prevention should always be prioritised! 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.

Understanding the Lunula Laser

Employing a low-level laser treatment, Lunula laser offers a virtually painless and often comfortable experience for most patients. Just sit back, take it easy and let the lasers do their job! Two lasers revolve around the nail, cooperatively undermining the fungal spores that have led to 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

At its core, Lunula laser leverages low-level laser light to augment your body’s natural defenses, urging them to tackle the microbes responsible for toenail fungus.

The Lunula Laser Process

At Doubleview Podiatry, our often employed weapon against fungal nail infections is the Lunula Laser. This technique is typically more bearable than several alternatives out there, establishing it as a preferred choice among our clients. The procedure goes as follows:

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

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 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.
