What to expect When You Visit Our Podiatrists
A free podiatrist consultation starts the treatment process. After establishing the diagnosis of nail fungus, the doctor will explain the symptoms, signs and progression, together with the treatment options. The podiatrist will then discuss your treatment expectations and likely results. Before the laser treatment begins, the nails are thinned, trimmed and filed to remove any thickening and fungal debris.
The laser beam is applied in sequence over the nails several times. Since the method of treatment relies on vaporizing the fungus with heat, the nails will get warm during treatment. Since the laser beam targets the fungus, the heat will not damage the surrounding tissue. Toenail fungus laser treatment typically lasts one hour.
Toenail Fungus Laser Treatment Aftercare
After the treatment, anti-fungal cream or spray is applied to the foot and preventive advice is given. Since fungal nail infections are caused by contact with fungi, care should be taken to improve levels of hygiene to prevent recurrence of the infection. We have several products we advise to assist in maintaining the long-term health of your feet. These include anti-fungal shoe sprays, athlete’s foot creams and anti-fungal nail polishes.
