| Nail fungus also called anychomycosis is a common condition estimated to affect up to 10% off the population worldwide. It can cause nails to become yellow or discoloured as the infection advances the nail can become thick, brittle and separate from the nail bed. It can cause pain when wearing shoes or walking.
Dermatophytes are the fungi most commonly responsible for causing this condition. Common sources of infection include swimming, pools, public showers, gyms and nail spas.
Laser treatments are effective in eliminating nail infections and restoring clear nails most patients experience at least some improvement.
How does this work?
Laser light passes through the nail and the surrounding tissue. And it absorbed by pigment in the fungi which causes the pigment to heat and this heat kills or damages the fungal organism. This can result in your nail growing normally.
