Tineaunguium, onychomycosis or ringworm of the nails is a superficial infection in the nails, which alter the color and thickness of the nails. They can affect both the nails of the hands and feet.

They can be caused by three types of fungi:

1. Dermatophytes (mainly of the genera Trichophytony Microsporum)
2. Yeasts (mainly Candidaalbicans)
3. Molds on the dermatophytes.

Onychomycosis affects between 10 and 20% of the general population. Onychomycosis is undoubtedly the most common disease affecting nails, accounting for up to 50% of all nail diseases.

Infinity of patients seek a solution to this complex pathology.

Onychomycosis is an infection that causes fungus on the nails of the hands and feet and affects approximately 3% to 4% of the population.

The treatment of Onychomycosis consists of four sessions, with a week between each session, in which the affected nail is irradiated with the laser. This procedure does not require anesthesia, analgesics, or post-operative. It includes the irradiation of all the nails of the affected member, taking into account that the other nails could have an overlapping contamination and cause a short term reinfection.

Improve the appearance of your nails with our Fotona Laser quickly and safely. And recover the natural state of your nails.

The treatment for Onychomycosis works with smooth-mode thermal technology, uniformly and thoroughly heating the affected nail and skin tissue, and effectively killing the parasitic fungi that is causing the infection, through the controlled heat generated by the laser. In this way, the natural growth and immune processes of the body are able to restore the nail to its natural and healthy state.

Due to the high bactericidal power of the Neodymium: YAG laser, we obtain exceptional results in a few sessions.

These types of therapies generally require laceres equipped with high power to achieve effective results, using energy doses of up to 150 J / cm2. Being one of the most powerful equipment on the market, the Fotona SP Plus Neodimio YAG comes with the capacity to generate up to 600 J / cm2 of creep.

The high power of FOTONA SP Plus is your perfect choice for fast and efficient treatments, with superior clinical results.

How often do the sessions take place?

The treatment can be applied every week or every two weeks. The frequency is determined independently with each patient, taking into account the severity of the lesions, the skin type, and other medical factors.

To prevent future relapses of the infection we will make several recommendations, including the change in hygiene and footwear habits and the local use of fungicides in spray or powder.
