How Does Cold Laser Work?

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.

Do You Have Fungal Nails and/or Athletes' Foot?

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.

Cause of Fungi infections:

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.

Prevention:

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:
