Our Fungal Nail Therapy: Your Path to Healthier Nails

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 Perth’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.

All About 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

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

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 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 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.
