Laser Unit for the Treatment of Fungi in the Feet
Onychomycosis, commonly known as nail fungus, is a fungal infection in the toenails that affects a high percentage of the population. The main cause of this infection are the dermatophytes, a type of fungus that distorts the color, shape and thickness of the nail, destroying it completely, if no measures are taken to combat them. Until recently, the treatment options were limited to creams and topical lacquers with slow and discrete results and the taking of oral medication with toxic effects. Nowadays, advances in medical technology allow us to count on a new and effective method: the PODYLAS ™ S30 laser unit, which treats nail fungus quickly, safely and without side effects.

S30 PODYLAS ™ is a 1064 nm. laser unit. of 30 W. of power that serves for the treatment of onychomycosis, plantar warts and papillomas, neurovascular helomas, intractable keratosis plantar, postsurgical recovery, analgesic and antiinflammatory therapy and other dermatological alterations of the feet.

Treatment of onychomycosis (nail fungus) with laser.
Onychomycosis - commonly known as nail fungus - is a fungal infection in the toenails that affects a high percentage of the population. The main cause of this infection are the dermatophytes, a type of fungus that distorts the color, shape and thickness of the nail, destroying it completely, if no measures are taken to combat them. Until recently, the treatment options were limited to creams and typical lacquers - of slow and discrete results - and to the taking of oral medication with toxic effects. Nowadays, advances in medical technology allow us to count on a new and effective method: the PODYLAS ™ S30 laser, which treats nail fungus quickly, safely and without side effects.

How does laser treatment work?
The S30 PODYLAS ™ laser beam is applied to the infected nails and the surrounding skin, alternating horizontal and vertical passes and repeating the procedure several times, so that no untreated areas remain. The energy of the laser causes a controlled thermal effect penetrating to the bed of the nail, destroying the fungus and without causing damage to the surrounding tissue. The treatment is several sessions of an average duration of about 15-25 minutes, depending on the number of affected fingers. The treatment is only intended to eradicate the existing fungus in the nails and its eradication is extremely complex, although after the laser treatment the nails improve. There are between 20-25% that never reach cure due to the coexistence of mycosis in the skin and will need more revisions to keep them healthy once the initial treatment is finished.

How does it feel during treatment?
The procedure is comfortable and painless; You may notice a certain heat sensation in the nail.

Does it have side effects?
No, treatment with S30 PODYLAS ™ is safe and has no side effects. But it is not allowed in pregnant women, pacemaker carriers, or patients who use photosensitive drugs.

How many sessions are recommended?
It is generally recommended to perform 6 sessions, lasting 15-20 minutes to ensure the eradication of the fungus. Although in some patients it will be necessary to apply a second cycle if the infection is very widespread. This second cycle will apply a reduction in the price of the session. The periodicity of the treatment is very important so that the scheduled appointments should not be delayed, as this has a negative effect on the treatment.

When will I be able to return to my normal activity?
The return to daily life after a treatment session is immediate.

Can fungi reappear?
The treated nails will show an improvement a few weeks after the treatment, although it will be necessary to follow some care guidelines that your podiatrist will recommend to avoid a possible reappearance of the fungus.

Will it improve the appearance of the nails?
The eradication of the infection does not always have associated the disappearance of the ungular dystrophy, since this can be due to previous traumatisms or to non-fungal diseases. The objectives of the treatment of onychomycosis are the mycological cure and the clinical recovery of the nail. Since the nail has a slow growth (0.1 mm / day the nails of the hands and 0.03-0.05 mm / day the toenails), it will take months to recover its normal appearance. The final test of mycological cure is the negativization of the test with a culture. Relapses after treatment are frequent and may be due to reinfection or incomplete eradication of the original fungus or not following the pautes marked by the podiatrist. A nail takes 12 to 15 months to grow, so the results will not be visible until three months after the last laser application. At the end of the treatment and even for the duration of the treatment the nail can be reinfected.

For this reason it is very important to follow the following recommendations:
• The development of the fungus is favored by a humid environment and temperatures slightly lower than 37º C. For this reason it is important to avoid hyperhidrosis (excess sweating) during and after treatment.
• Wear appropriate footwear and socks (natural fibers, cotton, wool) in order to avoid avoiding the maceration of the skin and the traumatism of the nails.
• Avoid the daily use of sports shoes.
• Adequate washing and drying of the feet, especially interdigital spaces (being able to use hair dryers). Use a soap with a pH greater than or equal to 7 to avoid the elimination of the protective mantle fatty acid cutaneous that favors fungal or bacterial growth. The foot washing will be carried out last and always with antiseptic acid soaps.
• Aerate the feet as much as possible. Sunbathing is useful.
• Disinfection of footwear and insoles. Directly applying powder or spray or introducing it into footwear disinfection systems.
• Remember that the fungus is not only transmitted by direct contact but also by towels, sheets and clothes. That is why it is important to regularly sanitize towels.
• Avoid the use of facilities such as gyms, swimming pools or saunas without protective measures (sneakers, booties).
• Avoid strong cosmetics.
• Do not use manicure/pedicure material on infected or suspected infected nails.
• In order to avoid relapses and therapeutic failures, the patient must continue the treatment indicated by the podiatrist during the indicated time, even when the unpleasant symptoms that the injury produced have disappeared.
