Clearanail - Fungal Treatment for Nails
Clearanail finally allows us to offer our patients a safe and effective method for treating Onychomycosis (fungal nails).
Fungal nail is the same infection as Athletes foot, but under the nail. Once the infection gets into the nail root, topical solutions cannot reach it.
Our treatment is based upon Controlled Micro Penetration (CMP) technology. The device is computer controlled and is completely safe, painless and quick. It produces micro holes through the nail without touching the skin beneath. The holes allow the topical solution to reach the infection and are just 0.4mm in diameter.
After 10 weeks
Does it hurt? No, you usually won’t feel anything. The device is computer controlled to ensure that it does not damage the nail bed,
How many treatments are required? This will depend on the severity of the condition, often only 1-2 drilling sessions are required.
How is the antifungal solution applied? This depends upon what treatment your Podiatrist recommends, but Lamisil Spray is often recommended, to be sprayed onto the nail daily.
How quickly will it work? A visible improvement will usually be seen in the nail in just 2-8 weeks, depending on how quickly the nail grows.
How long is the treatment period? 1-2 drilling sessions 8 weeks apart, then 3 follow up sessions 8 weekly.
This is for guidance only and in more advanced cases we may recommend a course of oral tablets in combination with the topical treatment. Medical history and severity of the fungal infection will be taken into consideration.
