Fungal Nail Treatment Is Here To Save The Day

Often, people end up at a podiatrist’s clinic due to a familiar issue – fungal nail treatment. If you’re in the midst of such a condition, remember you aren’t alone. Fungal nail infections, clinically known as onychomycosis, aren’t as rare as one might presume – they affect a significant 10% of Perth’s populace. 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 North Beach

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.

The ABCs of 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, 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

Every discoloured or distorted nail doesn’t necessarily imply a fungal cause, so we make it a point to verify we’re treating the appropriate 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 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.
