Fungal nail infections, medically known as onychomycosis, can be both a medical and cosmetic problem, causing nails to become discoloured, thick, and more likely to crack and break. In this blog we’re going to delve into the Podylas fungal nail treatment, exploring its efficacy, benefits, and why we love it.

What is Podylas Laser Treatment?

Podylas is a 1064 nm laser technology designed specifically to treat fungal nail infections effectively. Unlike traditional methods, such as oral medications and topical creams that may have limited effectiveness and potential side effects, Podylas laser technology targets the infection directly at the source. The laser penetrates the nail plate with minimal discomfort, reaching the nail bed where the fungus resides, ensuring a higher efficacy rate.

How Does it Work?

The Podylas laser operates at a wavelength that is optimal for penetrating the nail without damaging the surrounding skin and nail tissue. During treatment, the laser light heats evenly, targeting the fungus under the nail and destroying it through thermal energy. This approach is precise, avoiding harm to the healthy tissue, and stimulates the body’s natural regrowth processes. Typically, the procedure is quick, with sessions lasting only a few minutes, and requires no downtime, allowing patients to return to their daily activities immediately.

Benefits of Podylas Treatment

One of the standout features of the Podylas treatment is its safety profile. The method is non-invasive, does not require anesthesia, and carries no significant side effects. Additionally, it is a suitable option for patients who may not be candidates for oral antifungal drugs due to liver concerns or other contraindications.

Efficiency is another major advantage. Many patients observe improvement after just one session, though several treatments are generally recommended for maximum results. Moreover, the recurrence rate is lower compared to other treatments, making it an attractive long-term solution for fungal nail infections.

Patient Experience

Patients who undergo Podylas treatment often report a positive experience. The procedure is virtually painless, with some feeling a slight warmth or tingling sensation during the session. The non-surgical nature of this therapy is particularly appealing to those who are apprehensive about more invasive procedures.

Why do We Recommend Podylas?

For podiatrists like us, Podylas offers an effective tool in the fight against fungal nail infections. It enhances patient satisfaction through its high success rate and minimal risk profile. Additionally, it allows podiatrists to address the cosmetic concerns associated with onychomycosis, providing a complete solution that improves the overall health and appearance of the nails.

For patients struggling with fungal nail infections, Podylas offers a promising solution that can restore the natural appearance of their nails and improve their quality of life.
