Onychomycosis is a fungal infection of the nail. Symptoms may include white or yellow nail discoloration, thickening of the nail, and separation of the nail from the nail bed. Toenails or fingernails may be affected, but it is more common for toenails. A number of different types of fungus can cause onychomycosis and the diagnosis is generally suspected based on the appearance. Onychomycosis occurs in about 10 percent of the adult population, with older people more frequently affected. Males are affected more often than females. Onychomycosis represents about half of nail disease.
The most common symptom of a fungal nail infection is the nail becoming thickened and discoloured: white, black, yellow or green. As the infection progresses the nail can become brittle, with pieces breaking off or coming away from the toe or finger completely. If left untreated, the skin underneath and around the nail can become inflamed and painful. There may also be white or yellow patches on the nailbed or scaly skin next to the nail. There is usually no pain or other bodily symptoms, unless the disease is severe. People with onychomycosis may experience significant psychosocial problems due to the appearance of the nail, particularly when fingers which are always visible, rather than toenails are affected.
WHAT IS THE BEST NAIL FUNGAL TREATMENT?
Laser treatment of onychomycosis is very effective and safe. Clinical studies show that the laser kills toenail fungus and promotes clear nail growth with a single treatment in better than 80% of cases. The laser treatment is safe, effective, and most patients improve usually after their first treatment.
Laser treatment uses concentrated light to kill the nail fungus and prevent its growth. Several types of laser treatments are available, which may affect how well the therapy works for a person. If only a quarter of the nail is infected, the full result of the laser therapy should be evident in four months. However, toenails that are halfway affected can take about half a year to be completely healthy again.
Our Harley Street clinic uses Diode Laser treatment. The treatment is applied to the affected nails. Our Skincare Professionals combine specialised clinical in-clinic treatments with skincare products to effectively treat onychomycosis.
You will be advised on the number of laser therapy appointments recommended for your treatment at the initial consultation. On average, most fungal nail infections will require between 6 to 9 treatments for effective eradication.
