PACT Fungal Nail Treatment at Pod Fit Podiatry Adelaide
When it comes to fungal toenails Pod Fit Podiatry offers unique PACT photodynamic antimicrobial therapy solutions. Fungal toenails are inherently difficult to treat and require a comprehensive treatment approach for best long term results. In Adelaide, South Australia, clients are able to attend our Findon or Modbury clinic to undergo this safe therapy option to assist with healing of crumbling, discoloured fungal toenails. Your Podiatrist will advise on nail products to use at home to complement this also.
Photodyamic anti-microbial therapy is a unique treatment approach to heal fungal toenails. Each treatment involves a nail trim and mechanical file, application of blue photosynthesising gel to the toenail and application of the photodynamic laser light to the toenail. Our treatments will involve progress images over time to reassess toenail resolution accurately. You’ll receive a management plan from your first appointment to guide you through the comprehensive treatment approach of both self care and clinic treatment combinations for best results.
Conditions we commonly treat as Podiatrists at Pod Fit Podiatry:
Fungal toenails are often diagnosed based on both the appearance and history of the toenail. Fungal toenails can appear thick, yellow/brown or white, and crumble. They can start on one fingernail or toenail, and transfer to other nails over time on your own feet and your family members’ feet too. They are usually diagnosed based on an in-clinic diagnosis, and sometimes a clipping may be sent to pathology for further testing which your Podiatrist can arrange.
