Fungal Nail Infection

What are we treating?

  • Fingernail and toenail fungal infection – Onychomycosis

How we can help

Laser is the fastest and safest treatment for fungal nail infection. It is just as effective as topical or tablet treatment without the risk of side effects. In some cases it will even treat types of fungus which are resistant to tablet treatment. It’s also virtually pain free.

Causes of Fungal Nail Infection

Anyone can get a fungal nail infection but your risk increases with age, climate and health. The older you get the bigger the risk. The warmer and wetter the climate the greater the chance. Fungal nail infection is caused by microscopic fungi and you have an increased risk of developing this if you have one or more of the following:

  • Athletes foot
  • Nail infection
  • Poor circulation or weak immune system
  • Psoriasis
  • Hereditary
  • Chemotherapy treatment for cancer

Fungus loves warm, moist environments so the risk also increases if your hands and feet are constantly wet or sweaty

Symptoms of Fungal Nail Infection

Fungal nail infections are most common on the toenails but can also occur on the finger nails.

The most common symptoms are:

  • Discolouration – Yellow, black, white or green
  • Thickening
  • Separation from the nail bed
  • Brittle/unusual shape or texture
  • Difficult to trim
  • Painful
  • Bad smell

Onychomycosis (Fungal Nail) must be diagnosed by a Doctor, Dermatologist or Podiatrist, in writing, before we can start treatment. Please email, message or call to book your consultation. Consultations are not bookable through the website. Thank you.

I have seen Charlotte for 3 skin rejuvenation treatments, to help stop the signs of ageing and also treat sun damage. The results have far exceeded my expectations and I absolutely thrilled with the result. There is no denying it's a bit painful - but oh so worth it in the end.

Dan is welcoming and made me feel at ease. He is very knowledgeable about this area, allowing me to leave with full confidence in the information I received. After visiting a couple of other studios before hand I can not recommend this place more.

Zapp Laser Studios are amazing - they are extremely professional and made me feel relaxed and welcome. The consultation with Dan beforehand answered all my questions, and during the treatment Rhona talked me through every stage, so nothing was unexpected.

Your Concerns

How we can help

Cynosure Elite iQ Laser

The laser heats up the nail exposing the fungi to high temperatures which kill it. The treatment is incredibly safe and effective, and you will experience little to no discomfort. Typically, you require 4 treatments weekly. Once the fungi is dead, the nail will grow out normally. Some discolouration of the nail may occur but fades within weeks. There is no downtime or after effects.

Your outcome

Fungus killed and a healthy nail will grow out.
