Fungal infection of the nail may result in changes in the nails appearance: This can include yellowing, thickening, roughness, or crumbling of the nail, streaks or marks down the side of the nail, and occasionally total loss of the nail. Toenail colour can vary from brown to yellow or white. These changes may be superficial or under the nail
PACT® is an abbreviation for the scientific term Photodynamic Antimicrobial Therapy. This revolutionary method of treatment effectively kills off bacteria, viruses and fungi on skin surfaces, toenails and fingernails!
How does PACT work?
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) involves the interaction of light, a photosensitive agent and oxygen to produce a local chemical effect. This photochemical reaction induces fungal cell death without affecting surrounding tissue meaning it is 100% completely safe!
