The laser ensures that the fungus inside the nail gets heated to the point where it gets destroyed. The nails and skin around the fungus will stay intact. Even if there is only one infected nail, all nails will be treated to prevent contamination of the fungus.
Prior to the laser treatment, our skin therapist will schedule a consultation. During this consult the skin therapist will ask you some questions and you can inform her on your aims for this treatment. Our skin therapist will give you personalized advise on how to move forward after the consult.
At the start of the treatment the skin will be disinfected, to ensure we start the treatment on clean skin. After that, the skin therapist will look at the treatment area and might remove some stubbles or hairs. Both you and the skin therapist will wear protective glasses. Next, the skin therapist will set the amount of Joule, Hertz and millisecond before starting the treatment.
With every laser pulse the skin therapist activates, you can feel your nail react to the heat. This heat is necessary to successfully remove the fungus.
All treatments are exclusively performed by a certified skin therapist. Knowing that a laser is able to achieve the best results is step one, the next step is to choose the right laser. A powerful laser with strong results is our GentleMax Pro. The integrated treatment system makes use of two lasers; the Alexandriet laser and the Nd:YAG laser. Both of these lasers are very effective and have their own purpose, which allows us to offer and perform a wide range of treatments.
As a skin therapist I believe in the importance of quality work. That’s why I am an active member of the Dutch organisation for Skin therapists (NVH) and the Quality Register Paramedics, both responsible for testing and maintaining the quality of skin therapy.
