IPL Nail Fungus Treatments

 

IPL can safely reduce and eliminate the infection that causes fungal nails on both hands and feet.  We use our Thermolight IPL Machine to safely deliver medical grade treatments.  Our IPL fungal nail sessions are virtually pain-free, but depending on your individual sensitivity may be a little uncomfortable. 

It is advisable for your nail to have been tested by your G.P.  You will need at least 9 sessions, spaced 2 weeks apart.  Light and heat travel into the nail, subsequently killing the virus causing the fungal infection.  It is highly advisable that you regularly use a sanitizing foot spray between treatment sessions.  We recommend Mundo Sanitizing Hand and Foot Spray.  After your 8 sessions you need to re test the nail to see if the fungal has been killed.  If so, then you need to wait for your nail to re grow.  This could take some time.

If its your hand or feet affected we advise you to have all 10 treated as nail fungus can spread very easily without you knowing.

IPL light fungal nail treatments are fairly simple procedure.

The nails are cleaned.

IPL light is given. This may be uncomfortable but not painful.

 

Following the treatment, it is advisable to have your shoes sterilised and also purchase a supply of new socks – enough to change into a freshly laundered pair at least once every day. You need to be sure you keep your feet dry and sanitized between cleansing (bathing or showering) especially if you suffer from excessive sweating of the feet.  Your damaged nail will grow out leaving a new healthy nail in around 6 to 12 months.  You should see the damaged nail reducing as this happens.
