Fungal Fingernail Infections

Fungal Fingernail Infections

In the social symphony of impressions, faces catch the eye first, but the hands serve as a silent narrator of self-care and refinement. Adorning well-kept nails and supple, moisturised hands isn't just an expectation; it's a personal statement. From the subtle allure of a natural French manicure to meticulously crafted nail art, each detail reflects a personality's eloquence.

Yet, hands, always on display and indispensable, can belie signs of neglect. Bitten nails, ragged cuticles, or nails marred by brittleness and discoloration might find temporary refuge under layers of gel, but true elegance demands addressing the underlying concerns. Embrace a worry-free display of your hands after resolving the root issues.

Understanding the Intricacies of Fungal Infections

Fungal infections in fingernails, scientifically termed as onychomycosis, often begin inconspicuously. Initially benign, these infections gradually reveal themselves through nail discoloration, thickening, and brittleness. As the infection worsens, it might induce discomfort, inflammation, and scaling of the skin around the fingers.

A staggering 10 percent of the adult population battles fungal nail infections at any given time. Moreover, these infections have a knack for spreading, seamlessly transferring from one nail to another on the same hand, or even migrating to the opposite hand or feet. Household transmission via touch or shared towels adds further complications.  We have more information about fungal infections on this blog. 

The Solutions: Our Signature Laser Treatment

At Flawless Feet, we offer a cutting-edge solution to preserve the allure of your nails. Our latest technology, the S30 Podylas™ Laser and Lunula “Cold” Laser, stand at the forefront of fungal nail treatments. Painless and devoid of health risks, these lasers target the fungal infection by elevating the nail's temperature, eradicating the fungus and impeding its reproduction.

Several quick and painless sessions are necessary to eliminate the fungal growth entirely. Post-treatment, patience is key as it takes time for the nail to regrow, rejuvenated and healthy.

To complement the restoration, we recommend Sundays Studios nail polish, available in various colours in our online shop. Formulated with your well-being in mind, these polishes are 10 Free, non-toxic, vegan, and cruelty-free.  

Indulgence in Luxury Care

The luxury experience of manicure and pedicure appointments is a testament to the appreciation of self-care and wellness.

In our healthcare practice, we adhere to the highest hygiene levels, sterilising all equipment in an autoclave and ensuring immediate vacuum packaging after cleaning and storage.
