Clearanail is coming to the practice soon

Clearanail NewcastleClearanail is a new painless treatment which involves drilling very precise 0.4mm holes into the plate of an infected nail, allowing treatments to directly access the whole nail bed.

For years, podiatrists worldwide have been challenged with the common problem of onychomycosis, or fungal nail infection. Traditional over-the-counter treatments are ineffective because the active ingredients usually cannot penetrate to the whole of the infection. For the patient, this means months or years of unsightly and often uncomfortable nails.

Fungal nail infections affect more than a million people in the UK, men are more likely to suffer than women, and toenails are four times more likely to be affected than finger nails.

Clearanail , Gosforth, NewcastleClinically proven Clearanail is an innovative new concept developed using Controlled Micro Penetration, which creates micro pathways in the nail plate allowing deeper access to the areas of infection without damaging the nail bed beneath. Each of the tiny holes can be drilled in less than five seconds.

Treatments can then be applied leading to clearing of the infection and healthy-looking nails in a short space of time. Visible results are guaranteed within two weeks. Clearanail was invented by Dr Rolf Thomas in the Sussex Innovation Centre at Sussex University.
