Fungal nail treatment

Onychomycosis rarely responds effectively to topical antifungal treatment such as antifungal nail varnish and usually requires an oral antifungal treatment. Because of the potential risks associated with oral treatment, and in particular the risk of liver damage, various laser treatments have been developed over the past number of years in order to treat this condition more effectively.

Hot laser treatments are available but can be painful and ineffective because they cannot properly treat the entire nail. They can also be time consuming.

Treatment of choice in Dublin Nail Laser Clinic is Lunula Cold Laser, proven to effectively kill fungus that lives in and under the toenail. The laser light passes through the nail without causing damage to it or the surrounding skin. Safe and effective, the Lunula Laser poses none of the risk and harmful side effects of antifungal medications. This convenient inclinic procedure typically takes only minutes to perform, with absolutely no recovery time required .
