MediPedi Nail Spa is proud to introduce Adelaide’s first Lunula Low-Level Laser. The Lunula Laser Therapy combines two lasers that rotate over the nail. The combination of lasers weakens the cellular structure of the fungal spores and enhances the body’s immune system to neutralise and destroy the fungus.
Fungal infections in your nails are a source of embarrassment and will not go away without treatment. It can mean feeling self-conscious when you wear thongs or sandals and going to the beach or pool is filled with trepidation.
Some people even resort to wearing nail polish 24/7 to hid their toes.
Up until recently, the reality of a fungal nail infection was not great. Topical treatments just don’t work ( around 5% success rate) and oral medications have serious side effects.
Early Fungal Nail Laser systems have been a big step forward but the heat generated by the laser was uncomfortable.
Each Treatment lasts 12 minutes, is completely pain-free and all nails are treated at the same time. The treatment is usually applied over 6 weekly intervals, however the number of treatments can be dependent on the severity of the infection. You will start to see results in 6 weeks as the nail grows out.
At your assessment your Podiatrist will assess your nails and identify the problem areas. Sometimes nail discolouration is due to other causes. They will decide on an appropriate treatment course and any other recommendations
The treatment course will likely run for a minimum of 4 sessions increasing depending on the severity of the infection. Both feet are treated painlessly for 12 minutes each.
Your podiatrist will provide you with information and secondary treatments to make sure your nails stay healthy and prevent re-infection.
