Skin Revival was the first clinic in Australia to employ the latest
laser technology to treat the nail fungal condition onychomycosis,
a common fungal nail disease causing unsightly looking nails on
both the hands and more commonly the feet. While there are other
treatments available like daily lacquering (around a 10% success rate),
internal medication (50% success rate with high liver stress and
inability to retreat if unsuccessful), and the new laser treatments
show a 70% to 90% success rate with 1 to 3 treatments.
At Skin Revival we have been treating this condition with huge
success for the past 3 years and have never seen an adverse
reaction to the treatment.
With the cost of $200 per treatment for 1 area, either both hands
or feet, this treatment is not only quick and effective but also
affordable. A $50 non-refundable deposit is required when you
make your booking and at least 24 hrs notice is required, should
you need to change your booking.
Packages of 3 treatments are available for $450.
Feel safe in knowing that you are choosing a
specialised laser clinic for your treatment and
with 6 locations we are sure to have one
convenient to you.
What is this new laser treatment?
The new laser treatment is perfected to safely and effectively
treating onychomycosis (toenail fungus).
By targeting the fungus directly, the laser gets to
the source of the problem immediately.
How does the laser work?
Tiny pulses of light from the laser pass through the toenail to
the fungus underneath. The fungus is irradiated without any
damage to the surrounding nail or skin.
How long does the procedure take?
As we will be treating all the nails in the affected area, the
laser procedure will take around 30 minutes.
Is the treatment painful?
Most people feel a slight warming sensation during the procedure.
No pain medication is needed and most people find the treatment
very easy to tolerate.
How many treatments will I need?
Many patients only need one treatment, but some need more if they
have severe cases of toenail fungus. You will be advised of what to
expect before your first treatment
Are there any restrictions on my activity post procedure?
You can resume your normal activities immediately.
When will I see results?
You won’t notice anything immediately following treatment.
However, as your nail grows out, the new nail growth should be clear.
Toe nails grow slowly, especially nails infected with fungus.
Consequently, it may take 6-12 months for your toenail to clear.
Will the fungus come back?
Re-infection with toenail fungus may be acquired anywhere from
your environment, for example, in damp areas such as public
swimming pools. Consult with post care instruction to minimize
the chances of re-infection and take precautions to prevent toenail
fungus from reoccurring.
When can I apply nail polish?
While it is important to remove nail polish, decoration and
jewelry prior to treatment, you can reapply nail polish 24
hours after treatment.
How does the laser treatment compare to other toenail fungus treatments?
Traditional treatments such as nail trimming, topical medicine,
oral medicine or nail removal have significant drawbacks. Nail
trimming doesn’t treat the fungus. Topical medicines need to be
applied for 12 months and have a low success rate. Oral medicines
are taken for 3 months but can cause liver or kidney problems. The
laser treatment is a quick, easy, safe, effective procedure that treats
the fungus at the source.
