Warts & Verruca

For Warts or Verruca's we suggest an average of four to six treatments are carried out at two weekly intervals. A full review is given at each visit to monitor progress on an individual basis.

We provide treatments for a wide range of warts and verruca's using Fotona's Nd:YAG laser.

  • Deep and selective Nd:YAG absorption induces coagulation of blood vessels feeding the wart, causing subsequent necrosis (penetrates even through calloused tissue)

  • Antibacterial effects promote faster healing and reduce the possibility of recurrence

  • No need to remove any extra tissue, no anaesthesia required.

  • No special post-procedure skin care necessary

 

Fungal Nail 

Fungal Nail treatment is a patient-friendly method for treating onychomycosis (toenail fungus). It is a simple and effective procedure that uses power of Nd:YAG laser to heat evenly throughout the depth of the effected nail and skin tissue, effectively weakening and killing parasitic fungi which have infected the patients nails. Please ensure you have been medically diagnosed by your doctor before starting treatment.

Deep, pulse-profile heating of the nail bed stimulates the killing of parasitic fungus. The natural grown and immune processes of the body are then able to restore the nail to its healthy state. Compared to traditional methods, the effects of laser light spread evenly throughout the tissue and are not subject to either the limits of chemical diffusion (as are topicals) or the induction of hepatoxic side effects (as is the case with oral medications).

The treatment is usually performed four to eight times, at one to two week intervals. All of the nails should be treated during every session. Laser light can also effectively treat fungus which has infected skin tissue.

Fungal Nail Treatment is performed in three simple steps:

  • Step 1: Prepare the nail. During onychomycosis the nail may become deformed & overgrown, it may also thicken, if so filing down the nail allows laser light to fully penetrate into the treatment site.

  • Step 2: Administer Nd:YAG laser pulses covering the entire nail. The patient should feel a slight heating sensation throughout the nail.

  • Step 3: Target Nd:YAG laser pulses around the perimeter of the nail bed and around the finger or toe. Often parasitic fungus has worked its way beyond the nail bed and needs to be eliminated in all the tissue surrounding the nail to help prevent recurrence.
