Nail fungus treatment  in Dubai

  • What are the reasons behind Nail Fungus?
    • It is a very common complaint at the Dermatologist Office. The lack of care for the nail may lead to a thickened appearance, color changes and sometimes pain and debris under the nails. This condition can also spread among the nails or be transmitted to people who share public spaces like pools, locker rooms and bathtubs.

      • What are the different treatment approaches available?
        • It’s not easy to treat this chronic condition especially that the normal time rate for an adult to fully change his / her nails is about 4-12 months. If a nail plate has more than 30% of its surface compromised, local treatment is not sufficient, and a more incisive treatment may be indicated. For many years, there were very few choices of treatments. The oral medications available in the market were aggressive, in particular on the stomach and liver tissues. Moreover, these medications could not be mixed with alcoholic beverages. The surgical approaches- like removing the nail plate- were painful and ineffective. However, nowadays, the treatment of the nail fungus has improved dramatically, and the treatment may be advised through specific exams that help identify the agents. A sample is taken from the nails and then submitted to direct analysis and special cultivation. Afterwards, the identified fungus is normally put under drug exposures tests, which eventually helps to choose the best treatment for this particular infection. In addition, new oral medications, with less risk and side effects are available. Less invasive surgical treatments can be performed, whereas the selected compromised parts of the nail can be removed.

            The newest treatment approach is using Laser for treating nail fungus.(available in Dubai)

            • Can you tell us more about nail fungus Laser treatment?
              • This Laser treatment is already approved by FDA. Its efficacy does not match the oral medication yet, but is a breakthrough choice for those that are not willing or cannot be submitted to a pharmacological regimen. That being said, it’s a very comfortable treatment. Around 3 to 5 sessions are necessary to achieve the maximum benefit. Growing evidence regarding the success rates of this technique have also been accumulating.
