Fungal nail infection is a very common disorder. The main symptoms are discoloured nails which turn white, black, yellow or even green and a thickening and brittling of the nail so it becomes fragile and crumbly. Laser treatments is usually a last resort for eradicating an infection, after the realisation that other options, such as anti-fungal paints or oral medication are simply not effective enough. There are two types of laser treatment that are effective in treating fungal nail infections. The first type uses laser light typically emitted from Nd:YAG lasers with a wavelength of 1064nm of infra-red light. More recently there are now “cold” laser treatments available which use much lower wavelengths of light – 405nm and 635nm – which means that it is not relying on heat to kill the infection; hence the term cold laser. Most podiatry and chiropody clinics offer fungal nail treatments. In cosmetic clinics, any trained laser practitioner who has received specific training for the treatment of fungal nails would also be able to administer the laser treatment. Laser treatment for fungal nail infections is not accessible on the National Health Service. Treatments may be priced per treatment session or as a course of treatments, as it is highly unlikely that one treatment session will cure the infection so you will need multiple sessions. It’s likely that to cure a single hand or foot you will be looking to spend £500+.
