Fungal nail treatment

Clearanail Treatment - “A simple solution to a complex problem”

 

Clearanail is an innovative method of treating onychomycosis, or fungal nails. We use the computer controlled device to painlessly make multiple small holes in the affected nail(s), the affected nail is then treated with antifungal solution daily. The holes allow the solution to be delivered to the base of the nail, where the infection is located.

Many of the over the counter treatments available for onychomycosis have been proven by research to be effective at clearing fungal infections.  The challenge has been getting the solution or lacquer to the site of the infection. Clearanail mitigates this challenge and delivers the topical antifungal solution to the site of the infection - the nail bed.

The Clearanail treatment has been very successful in the UK, where it was developed and has recently been made available to New Zealand Podiatrists. We are happy to be able to offer the Clearanail treatment to our clients in the North West Auckland region.

If you have been struggling with fungal nails for a long time and tried various treatments on the market to no avail, then Clearanail could be the treatment for you!

FAQs


How big are the holes?
