Nail Fungus Treatment
Are your nails discoloured, thick or crumbling? Do they have a foul odour? If so, here at Centre4Feet we can offer you a safe and painless treatment option.
Clearanail is a breakthrough in the treatment of fungal nails. It’s not only a quick treatment (usually involves one treatment with the Podiatrist), it is also painless and a cheaper option to painful laser treatments. It is safe to use in the majority of people however a detailed medical history will be taken prior to treatment.
Clearanail is a Great British invention. In involves a 30 minute treatment* which is unique in that it allows the impermeable structure of the nail to be made permeable in order to reach the source of the infection. The tiny holes are made with a very fine intelligent drill and a sterile burr. The drill can sense when it is through the nail plate and therefore doesn’t cause damage to the nail beneath. Taking seconds to produce, these precise holes allow topical treatments, when applied regularly, to reach the fungal infection quickly and more effectively. Changes in the nail can be seen within a few weeks.
*Patients with multiple fungal nails will require a longer appointment time. This will be discussed with you along with the cost of the treatment.
Fungal Nail Infection
Prior to starting any fungal nail treatment including Clearanail, a positive fungal dermatophyte test is needed to confirm a fungal infection. This can be done via your GP however it can take weeks to get the results back. Here at Centre4Feet are able to offer a fungal test for nails and skin and results are available within 5 minutes. This groundbreaking test kit was developed in the UK by Dr Ivan Bristow Consultant Podiatric Dermatologist. After a positive test, we will discuss with you your treatment options.
