The Cold Laser emits powerful and concentrated laser that passes through the nail plate to the nail bed. The laser kills the fungus that lives in and under the toenail or in between the toes.
The laser does not cause any damage to the nail bed or surrounding skin. It encourages blood circulation in the area and gives energy to the cells locally.
Fungal nail infection usually affects the toenails but can affect fingernails too.
The symptoms depend on the extent of infection. The usual symptoms are:
Discoloured nails, White, Yellow or Brown
Thickened nails, may become crumbly or brittle.
Disfigured nails, sometimes lifting off the nail bed.
Skin in between toes and/or underneath toes may be itchy, red, scaly, dry, cracked or blistered ,cracked or peeling areas of skin, redness and scaling. It can occur on moist, waterlogged skin usually between the fourth and fifth toes initially, or on dry, flaky skin around the heels or elsewhere on the foot.
Fungi thrive in warm, moist environments (such is in the shoes) and hence, such environment promotes fungi to naturally overpopulate.
The factors that make humans more susceptible to fungal infections are:
Damage to nail plate in everyday life that allows fungi to enter the nail bed. This can happen by stubing or knocking your toe or finger
Medical conditions such as poor circulation, diabetes & psoriasis
Cosmetic nail treatments or wear artificial nails.
Wear ill-fitted or improper shoes.
Use of shared public recreation facilities, like swimming or shared cleaning facilities.
Poor personal hygiene.
According to NHS guideline, the Fungal nail infections develop when your feet are constantly warm and damp. You’re more likely to get an infection if you wear trainers for a long time and have hot, sweaty feet. Hence, it is important that you take adequate precautions:

Change your socks daily and wear cotton socks
Allow feet to breathe by wearing leather upper shoes and sandals
Have shower rather than baths
Don’t share socks or shoes with other people
Don’t wear the same pair of shoes constantly or consecutively. Don’t wear shoes if they are wet or damp
Take precautions and care at public recreational facilities by not walking bare foot on communal areas
Discard old shoes and trainers when the inner lining has worn out
Don’t soak your feet in warm foot baths
