Laser Nail Fungal Treatment
Fungal nails can present themselves as being discoloured, yellow or brown and nails can be crumbly, unhealthy, and unsightly looking. There can also be an odour associated with the contaminated nail(s) and the sufferer is often embarrassed and unwilling to wear open footwear as a result. It is important to know that the fungal condition will not disappear without treatment. The nail(s) contain a spore that becomes embedded in the layers of the nail, which means that they can be challenging to treat and cure. These fungal spores are highly contagious and can spread into other healthy nails and the skin if not treated aggressively and quickly and can lead to athlete’s foot or fungal skin conditions in other areas of the body. The laser nail treatment is a course of 4-8 treatments performed every 7-14 days. The laser uses powerful light technology on a wavelength that destroys fungal spores and prevents them from spreading. It is important to remember that toenails take a total of 1 year to grow out in full, it is therefore important that you are committed to the treatment to see the significant difference and changes to the overall appearance and quality of your toenails. Full comprehensive instructions to combat the fungus must be followed to ensure a satisfactory outcome, will include the use of topical applications, and you will receive the support of our Podiatrists to give you the best chance of success.
Prices start from £175 – £300 for laser therapy.

Laser Consultation with Instant Fungal Studies
The laser consultation is an in depth discussion with a qualified laser therapy podiatrist, who is skilled in understanding, diagnosing, and recommending your suitability for the laser treatment. This is also a chance for the podiatrist to talk about the pros and cons of undertaking the treatment, what to expect and what it might feel like. During this consultation, you will also undertake pathology by way of an Instant fungal nail test. This is a quick test to confirm the diagnosis of the existence of fungal spores in your toe nail/s to ensure the correct diagnosis and treatment. The Instant test will involve taking a small sample of your nail and analysing the results- this is pain free and extremely accurate. External Laboratory Nail Pathology testing is also available with a turn around time of 7-14 days.
