Nail fungus (onychomycosis) is a very common nail disease that affects and destroys fingernails and toenails and is an infectious disease. If untreated, onychomycosis can pass from the nail plate to the skin and then the whole organism is intoxicated.
The disease may be accompanied by:
For laser therapy of onychomycosis, a neodymium laser has proven itself in Europe. The beam length of a neodymium laser is 1064 nm, it allows the laser beam to penetrate to a sufficient depth of the nail plate (up to 7 mm), to get into areas where the agents and solutions for external treatment of onychomycosis cannot penetrate. The laser beam destroys the fungus mycelium and does not harm the tissues surrounding the nail and the nail plate itself. Before the procedure, you must consult a dermatologist to verify a diagnosis, after which you can proceed to laser treatment of onychomycosis.
Unlike other clinics with similar services, we offer fungus treatment with a neodymium laser. Only a neodymium laser kills the fungus mycelium; other lasers do not have such an effect.
Tangible relief will appear in a month. The final result of laser therapy can be evaluated after 6-12 months. During this time, the nails will go through a phase of full growth – and completely replaced with new ones.
Thorough laser treatment of skin and nails affected by mycosis has 90-95% effective rate. In advanced cases, at the discretion of the attending physician, complex drug treatment is simultaneously prescribed. It is this combination that most often gives the best result.
