Fungal nail infections can be stubborn to treat, unsightly, embarrassing and are very common. They are not serious but they can sometimes take a long time to treat if not done properly. Fungal infections usually affect your toenails, but you can get them on your fingernails too.
The causes of toenail fungal infections usually start when your feet are constantly warm and damp. So you are more likely to get an infection if you wear trainers for a long time and have hot, sweaty feet. Fungal infections start at the edge of the nail, and spread to the middle of the nail causing it to discolour, and in severe cases the nail will lift off. Infections make the nail brittle which causes parts to break off causing pain and swelling around the nail.
Toenail fungus can be easy to spot but difficult to treat. Dr Victoria will take care of your hands and feet with the Clear Choice Laser treatment, the only dual laser treatment for toenail fungus. A nail fungus treatment that will dramatically improve both the look, feel and health of your toenails and skin. Over the counter treatments will become less effective and cannot effectively pass through the nail plate, especially after it thickens and hardens. However, the Clear Choice Laser targets beneath the surface for immediate effects and long lasting results.
