The Lacuna Method is an increasingly popular fungal nail treatment. Your podiatrist will use a small drill to painlessly create micro-holes in your damaged, infected nails so that topical fungal nail treatments can better reach your infected nail bed. You should only allow a chiropodist who is officially qualified to use the Lacuna Method on your nails.
These micro-holes will naturally grow out over time, leaving behind a healthier nail. The number and placement of these holes will depend on the size of the nail, the layout, and predicted possible spread of the infection to strategically allow topical anti-fungal treatments through the nail plate.
You should also note that depending on the effectiveness of the treatment more holes may need to be added above the infected nail bed as the holes grow out past it. Also, ensure you hot wash your socks and routinely apply anti-fungal treatments as instructed by your chiropodist.
