Onychomycosis (Fungal Nail Treatment)

Treat onychomycosis (nail fungus) in 10 minutes and without pain by Nd:YAG – and without the side effects of drugs. A clinically proven, safe and effective laser treatment.

Ellipse Nordlys Nail Fungus Treatment – “Nail Fungus is really hard to get rid of and, to the naked eye, nails appear to be bruised, ridged or yellowing. Nail fungus also often causes the nail to lift away from the nail bed which makes the infection difficult to heal or treat. This is why many over-the-counter remedies just don’t work,” says Joanne Evans of the Skin Matters Clinic who uses Ellipse.

Ellipse Nordlys works by using a medical grade light treatment into the nail so it hits the nail bed cuticle and surrounding skin heating the area and eliminating the fungus infection. It is advisable to treat all toes, not just the affected ones, as fungus can spread quickly and easily. One treatment works but a course of two or three (once a week) is better. The infected or dead nail will grow out in three or four weeks following the treatment and a healthy, shiny, clear nail takes its place.

Ellipse Nordlys is the latest technology combining laser (ND Yag) and SWT (selective waveband technology) and is clinically proven and peer-reviewed (independently checked by leading skin doctors and published).

Onychomycosis (nail fungus) can affect finger or toe nails. There is a huge and growing number of people who need a definitive onychomycosis treatment; a treatment that is more effective than topical solutions and at least as effective as systemic antifungals, but without the long-term commitment, and especially without the risk of side effects associated with systemic drugs.

The onychomycosis Nd:YAG laser treatment is pain free. Ellipse’s patented SoftCool® cooling system sends a continuous jet of cool air across the treatment area. This increases comfort, while still allowing the nail-bed to reach the desired temperature.

Ellipse has developed the Nordlys Nd:YAG laser, already an indispensable tool for vascular treatments, to treat onychomycosis rapidly, effectively and with high patient comfort.

How does an Nd:YAG laser work on onychomycosis?

The exact mechanism of nail fungus (onychomycosis) treatment is not totally known. Heating the fungus is one major factor, but introducing a sub-millisecond pulse adds a “photo-acoustic” effect to the treatment, weakening the cell structure of the fungus. A series of flashes of infrared light is aimed across the whole nail, including the nail folds (the skin immediately surrounding the sides and base of the nail). This heats up and destroys the fungus that is present.
