Laser Fungal Nail Treatment
At Adrian Kriss & Associates we offer a range of laser podiatry treatments, which are determined following an initial in-depth consultation with Adrian or one of our other podiatrists. Our clinic prides itself on being able to tell you honestly whether or not the laser treatment is the best treatment for you. We are able to provide more traditional treatment alternatives to laser. In our experience, the patients have been extremely satisfied with the results, and lasers are a safe method of podiatry treatment.
We treat nail infections on toe nails as well as finger nails.
We use two different laser systems: cold laser provided by Lunula Laser and a hot laser, provided by Fotona Laser system.

Lunula Cold laser
We are proud to offer the latest, state of the art painless laser fungal nail treatments, in conjunction with London Nail Laser Clinic, Harley Street. Lunula Laser safely treats toenail (or fingernail) fungus in several 12 minute, painless treatment sessions.
The number of treatments required would depend on the severity of your condition and how well your body responds to the treatment, but the minimum course of four treatment sessions is recommended at weekly intervals.
Lunula cold laser treatment is a simple and non-invasive procedure, where your foot (or hand) with the infected nail is placed into a laser delivery booth for 12 minutes during each treatment session. Therefore, this can be a very quick lunch-time procedure, which is painless and you are able to resume your daily activities with minimal disruption.
If both of your feet (or hands) are infected, than allow 24 minutes for each treatment session, plus the consultation time. This is a simple procedure performed by the most complex modulation of lasers.

The Lunula Laser is a revolutionary cold low-level laser therapy bringing new hope to people suffering from toenail fungus (onychomycosis). The Lunula Laser is safe, effective, and painless.
Fotona Hot laser
Fotona hot laser is an alternative to the Lunula cold laser treatment, but could also be used in conjunction with it as part of your treatment plan.
There has been some criticism of the hot lasers from practitioners specializing in cold laser treatments only as these are generally seen as less comfortable. Our clinical experience of both lasers shows that there are benefits to using the hot Fotona laser, for example, where only one toe nail is infected, or the infection of the toe is more profound and long-standing
The hot laser heats the nail tissue thus killing off the fungus. The discomfort is not unbearable and your podiatrist will carry out gradual tissue heating and will work with you on the level of heating needed and the the number of sessions required.
We have seen that with some patients, due to their body metabolism, the nail fungus is killed more quickly with the help of the hot Fotona laser.
Each treatment consists of:
1. Consultation carried out by a registered podiatrist
2. Nail preparation and debridement where necessary
3. Photographs to monitor progress
4. After-care/preventative advice pack
Not all fungal nail infections respond to treatment at the same rate. We recognise this and therefore our standard treatment package comprises of treating each area with the Lunula Cold Laser and/or Fotona Hold Laser 4 times ideally weekly with no longer than 4 weeks between each treatment. However, more severe infections may need more treatments.
