Do you have unsightly or uncomfortable toenails? There are a variety of possible fungal infections that can infect your nails (e.g. athlete’s foot). These can make your nails thick or discoloured and in more severe cases leave your nails crumbling and your feet in significant pain.
At Tiptoe Foot Care, our podiatrists specialize in identifying the nail problem and work with you on the best form of treatment including cutting back affected nails, providing anti-fungal solutions, and advising on how to manage the problem whilst we seek to eradicate the infection.
Clearanail – New solution for treating fungal nails
Treating fungal nails can sometimes be a long process, particularly when the infection is well established. However, since 2015, we have been pleased to offer patients the ‘Clearanail’ solution for fungal nails.
The ‘Clearanail’ treatment was only invented and patented in 2013 but rapidly gained very positive reviews from medical researchers (e.g. Dr Ivan Bristow, University of Southampton) and practicing podiatrists who have been offering this to their patients as well as appearing in both the Daily Mail and Daily Express.
The Clearanail solution uses Controlled Micro Penetration (CMP) technology to make tiny holes in the affected nail, allowing the anti-fungal medication to penetrate into the whole area, rather than just the surface. It is:
- Quick to perform (can be done within a regular half-hour appointment)
- Quick to act (with visible results in a few weeks)
- Clean and precise with no need for local anaesthetic
This gives it clear advantages over the two main alternatives – laser treatment, which is usually more expensive, more painful and can require numerous sessions, or traditional treatments, which take much longer to resolve the problem.
Alternatively, if you are looking for a cosmetic solution then please ask us about Nail Reconstruction (Wilde-Pedique).
