Nail fungal infection laser is a treatment that purposely designed to permanently kill toenail or fingernails fungus. The nail fungus treatments options vary depending on the patient’s condition and severity of the infection. If you are seeking a fast, minimally invasive procedure, this treatment will provide you with the best result as the energy are narrow and targeted specifically to the affected areas.
The laser treatment utilised for this treatment is the Candela GentleYAG laser which works at a very specific wavelength (1064nm). The laser energy penetrates through the nail to the nail plate, to destroy the fungus through photocoagulation. Fungal spores will be targeted and be reduced in the months following treatment, and in the majority of patients, these spores can be completely removed from the skin surface, allowing the nail to grow back normally.
The non-ablative energy from the laser treatment heats up the skin tissue, without destroying it and triggers natural healing processes. The laser procedure works by eliminating the fungal organisms and also allows your body to heal and rejuvenate without risk of infection. Other benefits of nail fungal infection laser treatment include:
