Photodynamic Therapy for nail fungus using LED light…. safe and 100% pain free.

Onychomycosis is a fungal infection of the nail and is estimated to affect
up to 1.6 million Australians. Two currently available treatments include
antifungal nail lacquers that are applied daily/weekly and prescription
medications.

It can be frustrating to have to apply the lacquers daily/weekly especially
considering it takes at least 3 months to see improvement, given the slow
growth of toenails. Furthermore, prescribed oral medications can interact
with other drugs and can produce adverse effects making them unsuitable
for some people.

There is now an alternative…. Photodynamic Therapy.

A single PACT nail fungus treatment session will involve the following:

  1. Our Podiatrists will firstly debride and remove all of the infected part of the nail.
  2. A special PACT nail fungus gel is then applied to the nail and left to absorb for 10 minutes. This gel stains the fungal cells making them sensitive to the light emitted by the scientifically tested PACT LED lamp.
  3. The PACT LED light is applied for 9.5 minutes penetrating the nail and destroying the fungal cells.

PACT nail fungus therapy is 100% safe with no known contra-indications. Repeated exposure to the light does not produce any adverse effects.

How can I be certain what I have is a fungal nail?

Historically, to diagnose fungal nail a sample was sent to the laboratory and grown in culture, which would take several weeks.
We are now offering Diafactory Testing which has a 97% accuracy rate and the results are ready in just 5 minutes, meaning treatment can begin immediately. The results are unaffected by topical or oral anti-fungal treatments, and it detects 99% of all common fungal nail infections. This ensures that fungal nail treatment is justified, and accurate diagnosis will save you time & avoid you spending money on unnecessary treatments.

How do I get my fungal nails treated with PACT?

Please make an initial appointment with one or our Podiatrists. They will assess and diagnose your toenails and see if your nails are suitable for PACT nail fungus therapy. If your nails are suitable they will explain the treatment process in detail, structure your treatment plan and schedule your PACT nail treatments.
