Introducing Pact-Med Photodynamic Therapy for Fungal Toenails
Dr. Steve Lynch ~ Podiatrist at INSTEP PODIATRY has acquired the latest in German technology to treat fungal nail infections. The Pact-Med uses photodynamic light to destroy the dermatophytes, yeast and other fungus in conjunction with a blue gel. The gel helps absorb the light which is toxic to the fungus. Fungus hates any type of light but the wavelength used by the Pact Med system uses a wavelength that fungus finds particularly toxic.
Treatment is 100% safe and more effective than any other therapy including oral medications and laser therapy. Unlike medications and laser this therapy is safe and does not cause any discomfort. Treatment is 3 times in 1 week and a follow up in 4 weeks. Dr. Lynch likes to see everyone 3 months later to ensure the new nail growth is fungal free. Occasionally the treatment is done again at this appointment.
