Eliminate Fungal Nail Infections With SkinSpaceUK’s Laser Treatment
Wave goodbye to unsightly fungal nail infections, and hello to flip-flop ready feet, with SkinSpaceUK’s targeted laser treatments. Easy to spot but notoriously difficult to eliminate, fungal nail infections (medically known as onychomycosis or tinea unguium) are so common that one in ten of us is affected, rising to 20–50% of people aged over 60 years.
So how does a fungal nail infection occur? Fungal spores will often multiply beneath the nail, feeding off the skin or keratin in the nail. Fungal infections thrive in warm, moist conditions, such as at swimming pools or in our shoes.
Tell-tale signs to look out for include nails becoming brittle and crumbly, thickened, discolored, and distorted. The nail can become difficult to cut or may even fall off completely if left untreated. This can become a source of embarrassment, or worse still, cause pain and swelling in the skin around the nail making it painful to walk.
These stubborn microorganisms have traditionally been tricky and time-consuming to eradicate using lotions or oral antifungal drugs, which often produce side effects. But at SkinSpaceUK we can now offer a simple, pain-free way to dramatically improve both the look and health of your nails.
