Nail Fungus Clinic Ltd (hereafter referred to as “NFC”) is the only referral centre providing comprehensive advice for clients and enabling them to access laser treatment through a national network of partner treatment centres.
All information given to clients is based on the best practice advice received by NFC from industry experts; in particular laser device manufacturers who build and supply FDA approved machines for the treatment of nail fungus. This is continuously reviewed to ensure we are offering the most up to date advice.
SERVICES WE DO PROVIDE
NFC provides generic advice on nail fungus and treatment for this condition only.
NFC ensures that the most convenient partner treatment centre gets in touch with the client directly to arrange an initial consultation and treatment.
SERVICES WE DO NOT PROVIDE
NFC does not provide a definitive diagnosis for nail fungus or administer any treatment.
The client authorises photographs to be taken at various stages of treatment. This is strictly for the purpose of monitoring improvement.
Prior to laser treatment being given, the partner treatment centre will discuss your level of infection, inform you of the right course of action to try and kill the fungus and request that you sign a consent form. This is a standard practice associated with all laser treatments and it is key that the client understands fully before proceeding.
The standard treatment of four sessions is successful in many cases. However, frequently and more so in cases where there is a severe infection or a great deal of time has passed before being tackled results in additional treatment sessions being required. These sessions are at extra cost to the client.
Our partner treatment centres will provide an aftercare document informing the client how they can help reduce the chance of reinfection. By not adhering to such preventative measures nails are likely to become re-infected.
Nail fungus causes nails to become discoloured, lift from the nail bed, change shape, width or become deformed in other ways. Laser treatment may not assist the nail to being restored to the former condition pre-infection.
Clinical trials shows that treatment is not one hundred percent. NFC makes no claim that this treatment is guaranteed to work. Cases where infection is very severe or long standing can experience permanent damage to the nail or nail bed.
All treatments carried out utilise FDA approved thermal laser devices.
A consultation is required before commencing any treatment and this appointment can only be made by paying the cost of fifty pounds in advance.
The consultation fee can be deducted from the total cost when a client proceeds with any treatment option.
The full balance owed for a treatment must be settled when the client arrives for their first treatment session.
Additional treatment sessions are payable to the partner treatment centre directly on arrival to each treatment session.
AGE & RESPONSIBILITY
The technology used is only suitable for clients aged sixteen and above.
The client is responsible for adhering to reinfection prevention.
The client should inform the partner treatment centre of any medical conditions before signing the consent form.
