Fungal nail infection treatment

Fungal nail infection treatment

Fungal nail infections (onychomycosis) can be very common and persistent. The infection is caused by a fungus, and can make the affected nails brittle, thick and discoloured. 

The infection might be caused by badly fitting shoes or damage to the nail plate. It could also be caused by another condition like athlete’s foot, which affects the skin on your feet, often between the toes.

Fungal nail infections are generally not serious, but they can take a long time to heal, and are unsightly. You might worry that it’s never going to improve, particularly if you have had it for a long time and it is causing toenail trouble. But we can help.

Lunula laser therapy

We can help treat fungal nail problems with our low-level laser therapy, Lunula Laser®. Lunula is a new technology that harnesses cold laser with no risk to the patient, and has proven results in combating fungal nail infections.

Lunula laser therapy targets fungus that lives in and under the toenail. The laser light passes through the nail without causing damage to it or the surrounding skin.

There is no pain, no risk and no recovery downtime – it’s a quick, easy, convenient way to experience healthy, clear nails again.

You will also avoid the potentially harmful side effects of oral anti-fungal medications.

How to get started

Please note, you will need to have an initial podiatry assessment before booking any fungal nail treatments.

Initial assessments are a 40-minute face-to-face consultation at our clinic in Surbiton.

This is a chance for our podiatrist to listen to what you need, diagnose your foot problem, create a treatment plan and – if appropriate – begin treatment.
