At Huidtherapeut NL, it is possible to treat fungal nails by means of laser therapy.
The laser generates heat under the nail and in the fungus. The fungus destroys the heat. The nail is stimulated to grow healthy again. You can feel a slight warmth and pain sensation while warming up.
Treat all nails, including those of housemates
If you suffer from a fungal nail, it is advisable to have all nails treated. This is because there may be mold that is not visible to the naked eye. In addition, it is also advisable to let your partner / housemates also start treatment when they suffer from fungal nail (s). This is to prevent you from coming into contact with the fungus again and the treatment may not be effective as a result.
How many treatments are needed?
Depending on the severity of the fungal nails, an average of 3 to 5 treatments are required. The frequency of the treatments is once every 4 weeks.
The effect of the treatments is visible after a period of several months, because the nails grow very slowly. You will then see a healthy outgrowth of the nails. It takes about 9 to 12 months for the entire toenail to grow out.
In addition to the treatments in practice, we recommend a number of instructions and care for the home. You will receive these instructions from us during the intake. It is necessary to observe the instructions for the optimal result.
