Nail fungus can affect fingers or toe nails. There is a huge and growing number of people who need Onychomycosis treatment, given its widespread nature, there is relatively little public awareness of the disease and the treatment options, with many people not even knowing that they have fungal toenails because it’s normally painless, and the symptoms may only be discolouration and thickening of the nail. Many patients find after trying anti-fungal nail paints they don’t work, and are even hesitant to take oral anti-fungal drugs because of long term commitment and the side effects (such as headache, nausea or diarrhoea). Caught early enough and treated, fungal toenails can be cured and normal healthy nail left to grow in it’s place, however in severe cases fungal infections can spread to other parts of the body and infected nails must be surgically removed. Ellipse Nd:YAG laser treatment offers a painfree, reliable and effective treatment, without the risk of uncomfortable side effects.
How does the treatment work?
Ellipse's Nd:YAG laser uses a "painting" technique to apply several shots per second, across the whole nail, cuticle and nail folds.
How long does the treatment take?
A session typically lasts 10 minutes.
Does it hurt?
No it is pain-free, Ellipse’s patented SoftCool® cooling system sends a continuous jet of cool air across the treatment area. This increases client comfort, while still allowing the nail-bed to reach the desired temperature.
How many treatments are needed for best results?
Both feet may take up to four treatments which ensures the best chance of success.
How can I be sure Ellipse is safe and effective?
Clinical trials documenting Ellipse’s safety and effectiveness are carried out by leading doctors prior to the release of the product. The results of these tests are then published in respected, refereed medical journals. You are welcome to view these scientific papers on the Ellipse website at www.ellipse.org.
