Cutting edge laser beam technology is cutting feet issues for Cantabrians – just in time for open-toe shoe season.
Footprints Podiatry’s Lunula Laser uses a double cold beam to ensure no pain – or even sensation – for patients, and Senior Podiatrist Howard Nicholas tells us more about the leading fungal nail treatment.
What is Lunula Laser? The Lunula Laser is the newest standard in treating fungal nail infections. It had been used extensively worldwide with impressive results – and that convinced me to invest in the technology. The great aspect for patients is that it uses two cold laser beams, which means no heat or pain. Once patients have their foot inside, they actually have no sensation that anything is happening at all.
When is the best time to get these treatments? The process of treatment starts with four sessions about a week to 10 days apart. Each foot is exposed to the laser beams for 12 minutes. There may be further sessions depending on the severity of the fungal infection. Winter is the perfect time to have this treatment in readiness for summer and your favourite pair of open-toed shoes.
What are the results? We introduced it last year, and I was over the moon with the results immediately. The level of improvement is amazing. We’re seeing better nail growth and appearance, as well as improvement in the tone and condition of the skin around the nail.
