Fungal Nail Treatment

Painless Fungal Nail Treatment that’s simply the most effective available.

Free yourself from embarrassing and unsightly fungal nails – FAST. Our unique Lunula cold laser provides pain-free, hassle-free treatment. Add in 17 years experience and a FREE Chiropodist consultation and you’ll see why we’re loved.

The SOLUTIONS

We use LUNULA Laser and CLEARANAIL Micro-penetration for Fungal Nails as the more widely used treatments are less effective and can have side-effects.

We believe Lunula and Clearanail provide the best treatments for fungal nail infection. Other treatments are available, these include the following.

  • Anti-fungal Tablets Need to take daily for six to twelve weeks. Side-effects cause concern for many and include liver damage. For this reason regular blood tests may be ensure liver isn’t being affected. Success varies from between 14% and 37% depending on drug.
  • Medicated Nail Liquids These are “paints” that need to be applied to the affected nails; may involve filing down the nail before each application. May need to apply for upto 52 weeks. Side-effects include – burning sensation in surrounding areas. Success rate is generally lowest of all treatments available and varies between 22% and 40% depending on the drug.
  • Thermal Laser (eg Fotona, Pinpointe, Genesis Plus, Nd:yag etc) We have considerable experience of the use of thermal laser to treat fungal nails and in fact have used this with great success in the past. The biggest problem with this traditional laser treatment option is the pain caused as a result of the heat they generate – often described as hot and needle like – this means treatment has to be stopped where the discomfort can no longer be tolerated by patients; treatment is curtailed and/or the course has to be extended with this treatment cost can increase. Cold laser as it names implies does not generate heat and is therefore 100% pain-free. Thermal laser can only be used to treat the affected nails unlike Lunula Cold laser that treats all nails on the affected hand/foot.
  • Tea Tree Oil. There is no clinical evidence to support use of tea tree oil as a treatment for fungal nails. As a profession its use is now avoided due to risk of skin irritation/sensitisation.

TREATMENTS OPTION 1: Lunula Cold Laser 

Treatment is quick, painless and hassle-free – no drugs, needles or paints, just state-of-the-art technology and over 15 years of fungal nail experience!

  • As seen on ITV’s Good Morning. This revolutionary process uses 2 different laser beams – one to kill fungal infection and the other to boost the body’s immune system; this two pronged action produces improvements quicker than other treatments.
  • Clinical trials have shown a 95% clearance of the infection in just 2 treatments and 97% clearance at the end of the course.
  • Safest and most effective treatment available. No recovery time
  • Treatment is fast – a session lasts between 12 and 24 minutes. A course of laser treatment will take usually between 2 and 10 treatments long and are at intervals of between 3 and 7 day intervals depending on treatment option, severity and complexity of condition.
  • Kills nail fungus in as little as four PAIN-FREE 12-minute treatments.
  • NO oral medication, no side-effects – anti-fungal tablets can adversely affect liver and may require regular blood tests.
  • NO chemicals – nail paints are time-consuming and slow acting.
  • NON Invasive – Laser avoids need for nail surgery, scalpels and needles.
  • Can be used to treat fungal nails in children (from 11 years). CRB Checked.
  • The treatment as minimal to no impact on lifestyle.
  • A course can involve as little as 2 treatments is required depending on severity of the condition.
  • Your nails will prepared by the Podiatrist prior to commencing laser treatment.
  • It is CRITICAL to have in place a proper foot health regime; A Specialist Treatment Pack and information will be provided prior to commencement of laser treatment, to ensure successful treatment and to prevent re-infection. Our products are not readily available from supermarkets or pharmacies and have been clinically tested for effectiveness.
  • Free consultation lasts between 30-45 minutes and allows our chiropodist to carry out an assessment of the condition, gather history and recommend a suitable treatment plan. Appointments for treatment take between 30-45 mins. Check-ups up-to 30 mins. You are not obliged to have treatment and you will not incur any charges for the consultation.
  • Although the infection will have been treated by the end of the course, improvements in appearance of the nail will only be seen as the damaged part of the nail is replaced by healthy, fungus-free nail.  As nail growth can be very slow (0.5mm per month), this can take time; however the laser can increase the rate of growth of the nail which can mean that improvements in nail appearance can be observed sooner.
