Nail Care

Are your nails making you feel self-conscious? 10% of the population suffer from unsightly fungal nail infections – be one of the 90% who don’t! Come and see our fungal nail specialist.

What is Fungal Nail?

Fungal Nail is the same infection as Athlete’s Foot, but occurs under the nail. Traditional topical solutions cannot penetrate the nail in order to treat the infection beneath, and pills work for less than 4 out of 10 patients and carry significant risk to the liver.

Our nail specialist, Karen Longwith, provides two distinct treatment plans for fungal nail infection:

Micro-Nail Infiltration treatment

Micro-Nail Infiltration (MNI) makes a series of tiny holes through the nail plate in order to provide access to the nail bed beneath. These holes, which are just 0.4mm in diameter, allow a specialist topical solution to target the infection directly.

Does the treatment hurt?

There is no pain or risk. The micro-cutter only removes nail plate tissue and does not touch the skin beneath the nail.

Single treatment solution

  • Only one 60-90 minute appointment required.
  • Painless and no side effects.
  • No recovery time – just get up and go!

Considerations: Infections reaching the cuticle are not recommended for this treatment. Restoration of the nail is dependent on the speed of your natural nail growth.

Athlete's Foot Treatment

If you suffer from…

  • cracked skin
  • dryness that seems to return quickly no matter which products you use
  • splitting of the skin between toes or around the ball of the foot
  • tiny blisters which appear in groups
  • itchy patches anywhere on your feet

…then it’s likely you have Athlete’s Foot.

If you periodically try to treat this very common yet stubborn problem, and have not yet been able to, book a consultation and let us help you become symptom-free for summer!
