Fungal Skin and Nail Infections
Fungal nails and skin infections are a very common occurrence. Fungal skin infections are relatively easy to treat with the right prescription. Fungal nail infections however tend to be more stubborn and require dedication and commitment with treatment options. Our podiatrists will be able to advise you on the best course of action on your fungal infection, and will be able to provide treatment such as topical creams and solutions, or light/ laser therapy
We are pleased to announce that we now have the PACT® Nail Fungus Therapy system for the treatment of fungal nail infections, as well as for bacterial skin infections and ulcers. See below for further information on the PACT® system for fungal nails.
Is the treatment painful?
The PACT® Nail Fungus Therapy system should not cause any discomfort, if you do feel anything it will be slight warm sensation.
Will my nails look normal straight afterwards?
The results from the treatment are not apparent immediately after the procedure. You will notice after approximately a month, new healthy nail growing from the base of the nail. This will slowly grow out, revealing a normal and healthy toenail.
How many treatments will I need?
The research has concluded that 80% of patients will only require one to four sessions, depending on the severity on the infection. Our podiatrists will be able to assess your condition and advise if sequential treatment might be required.
*Please note: Prior to having this treatment, an initial consultation is required.
What will happen during this consultation?
Your podiatrist will go through your medical history with you, discuss contraindications and potential side effects, will assess your nails, diagnosis the severity of the fungal infection, and manually prepare your nails for the procedure. If suitable, your first session can be performed during this consultation.
Please feel please to contact us to discuss your case. One of our podiatrists will be happy to all answer your questions and advise you on best treatment approach.
