Get Rid of Nail Fungus With The Best Laser Treatments In Birmingham
Say goodbye to ugly nail fungus with a course of laser treatments at HUSH Salon in Birmingham. Using incredibly effective pulsed laser, the laser light is directed onto the infected nail and a short pulse of light is released. This light and heat is absorbed into the skin underneath and around the infected nail, helping to destroy the dermatophytes and eliminate the fungal infection.
During this treatment you may feel some discomfort as the laser light heats the nail and attacks the infection, but we will also direct a cooling device onto the treatment area to try and make your feel more comfortable.
Athlete's Foot & Nail Fungus Treatments at Top Laser Salon in Birmingham
While athlete’s foot may seem like a minor skin irritation with flaky and cracked skin, it can lead to toenail fungus where fungi grow under the nail and live off the skin and keratin. We can now treat nail fungus using a course of high tech laser treatments at our award-winning salon in Birmingham.
Visible signs of fungal toenail infection include:
- discoloration of the nail
- hard and brittle nails
- ridged nails
- white gunk under the toenails
- an unpleasant smell from the nail
- scaling under the nail
- raised nail as it pushes away from the nail bed
- nails falling off.
The elderly are the most susceptible to nail fungus, but it can also be found on patients on some medications, people with diabetes and psoriasis and those with conditions that weaken the immune system.

Nail Fungus Laser Treatment FAQs
Pulsed laser light is directed onto the infected nail and a short pulse of light is released. This light and heat is absorbed into the skin underneath and around the infected nail, helping to destroy the dermatophytes and eliminate the fungal infection.
Nail fungus is not considered dangerous. It is often unsightly and can be a little itchy and uncomfortable.
The most common types of fungus that causes nail infections are called dermatophytes which enter the skin through tiny cuts or small separations between the nail and nail bed. Once they have entered, the fungi grow as the nail provides a suitable warm and moist environment for them to thrive.
No, but they are often related to one another. Athlete’s foot is a minor skin irritation with flaky and cracked skin which can lead to toenail fungus where fungi grow under the nail and live off the skin and keratin.
Treatments are carried out ever six to eight weeks on the area to be treated. The number of treatment varies depending on the severity of your nail fungus, but we usually recommend between two and six treatments. Your HUSH beauty consultation will be able to give you a better idea of how many treatments you are likely to need during your complimentary consultation.
As long as you continue to carry out good foot and nail hygiene, your nail fungus is unlikely to come back following a course of laser treatments. Do not stop having laser treatments mid-way through your course because the fungus will return if you do not complete your treatment.
Laser treatments usually last around 30 minutes and we recommend a course of up to six treatments depending on the severity of your nail fungus.
You will feel a degree of heat and some discomfort during each treatment. However, we have the most effective laser technology on the market which applies a skin cooling system during the laser treatment to minimise any discomfort.
The area being treated may be red, a little swollen and tender immediately after treatment. This usually subsides within a few hours. Some people experience occasional blistering in the area around the nail or a temporary lightening or darkening of the skin. In some cases, if the nail is very badly infected, the nail may fall off. If this occurs, a smoother, uninfected nail will eventually grow in its place.
