Clearanail - fungal nail treatment:


What is Clearanail? Clearanail is a treatment for Fungal Nails.

What are Fungal Nails? Fungal nail (known as Onychomycosis) is the same fungal infection as Athlete’s Foot which has become established under the toenail.

Why are Fungal Nails difficult to treat? Antifungal solutions applied to the nail cannot penetrate the nail easily.

What is special about the Clearanail Treatment? The Clearanail treatment produces micro holes through the nail to allow antifungal medication to reach the infection.

How big are the holes? Very small, they are 0.4 mm in diameter (about the same width as four human hairs)

Does it hurt? No, you usually won’t feel anything because the device is computer controlled to ensure that it does not damage the nail bed.

How many treatments are required? Usually we will only need to make the holes once, however a sometimes for best results a second treatment is necessary.

How long does the treatment take? Approximately half an our to make the holes.

How is the antifungal solution applied? This depends upon what is recommended for your nail condition, but Lamisil Spray is often recommended to be sprayed onto the nail twice daily.

How quickly will it work? A visible improvement will usually be seen in the nail in just 2-8 weeks.

How long is the treatment period? The spray may be applied for up to four months.
