Lacuna Method is a simple, effective treatment of fungal nail infections.

How do I know I have fungal nails?

You may have noticed changes in the texture, quality and colour of your nails. Sometimes it is noticed after nail varnish or gels have been removed. Typical first signs are yellowing or brown discolouration, nails may become thick, crumbly or brittle. Nails can become distorted, misshapen and may lift from the nail bed, losing their healthy shine. 

Nail Fungus Signs:

  • Thickened nails
  • Crumbly or brittle nails
  • Distorted in shape or lifting 
  • White, yellow or brown coloured nails
  • Nails without a healthy shine

What is the Lacuna Method?

The lacuna method is a treatment for fungal nails which involves drilling multiple micro holes through the nail plate , this allows an antifungal solution such as lamisil AT 1% spray to be transported to the area of infection (the nail bed) directly. Your practitioner will advise you on the frequency and duration of the application of the spray. Pressure applied to the nail when walking will aid in spreading the medicament under the nail.

As the nail is ‘dead’ the holes will remain and will grow out naturally. Review appointments are recommended on average every 6 weeks; however, this may vary, and your practitioner will advise you.

This is a relatively new treatment and although short-term studies have been very encouraging, no treatment can be guaranteed to be 100% successful.

Lacuna Method for Fungal Nails is:

  • Pain free, safe treatment 
  • Making micro-holes in the nail plate allow an anti-fungal medicine to reach the point of infection directly under the nail
  • Continued once a day application of an antifungal allows the nails to grow out healthy 


How Can the Lacuna Method Help Me?

Fungal nail infection (onychomycosis) is the most difficult of the superficial fungal infections to treat, as most topical agents are ineffective at penetrating the nail plate to reach the active infection in the nail bed (the skin under the nail). By making micro holes in the nail plate with the innovative and specially designed micro burrs, your foot specialist can enable you to apply an anti-fungal agent, such as lamisil spray directly to the infected nail bed. Which will spread under the nail as you walk. With daily application of the anti-fungal agent, the fungus is stopped from spreading and damaged nail grows out. As the nail is dead you cannot feel the holes being made.
