Onychomycosis is the medical term for fungal infection of the nail or nail plate. Onychomycosis infection is acquired by invasion of the nail plate from adjacent infected skin or directly through the surface of the nail plate by pathogenic fungal species, specifically acquired from direct contact with an infected source.
At Bespoke Skin Clinic the intense pulses of our laser technology are applied to the entire area of each infected nail. The laser energy penetrates through the nail plate to heat up and kill the fungus hiding in the nail bed and root. During our bespoke treatment, the fungus absorbs the color and the heat from the laser and dies. The laser pulses immediately kill the fungus, and the newly healthy nail is apparent when the old nail grows out, which takes a few months. Our clients typically do not mind waiting to see the results, as they understand that laser treatment is now the best solution for nail fungus.
