Sagging Skin

Get rid of your sagging skin!

Over time, the skin’s underlying structure breaks down, robbing our faces of their definition, youthful plumpness, and resilience. Skin also renews itself much more slowly than it once did. In addition, genetics, weight changes, and sun damage contribute to the loss of elasticity of the skin.

Trichophyton Rubrum

The Trichophyton rubrum fungus is a dermatophyte. A dermatophyte is a type of fungus that infects the skin and nails. The common term “fungal nails” is medically known as onychomycosis. This is a general term for a fungal infection of the toenails or fingernails.

Onychomycosis is a nail infection that is usually caused by dermatophytes (e.g., Trichophyton Rubrum, Trichophyton Mentagrophytes). Besides dermatophytes, there are also other causes. Onychomycosis can also be caused by non-dermatophytic molds and certain yeasts (e.g., Candida Species). Once in contact with one of these possibilities, the nail fungus usually begins growing on the skin near the nail and then eventually enters the nail bed and nail plate.

Symptoms

Once the fungus enters the nail bed and plate it can cause changes in the nail’s appearance including symptoms such as thickening, flaking, and discoloration. Fungal nails may break easily, appear brittle, and separate from the nail bed. Such visual changes in a nail’s appearance are usually the first signs of fungal nails. These symptoms may also be accompanied by disfigurement and pain. These severe cases are not common and can cause problems with physical activities such as walking, exercising, and even standing.

The ClearSense Solution

ClearSense technology uses a laser for a non-invasive treatment of onychomycosis.

The use of a laser is good news to patients that are often faced with undesirable and ineffective treatment options such as topical antifungal creams. Such creams often fail to penetrate the nail adequately and fail to eradicate the fungus. Other treatments such as oral antifungals are often hepatotoxic and can result in liver damage.

ClearSense offers a safe, fast, non-toxic, and effective way to eradicate the fungus and facilitate the growth of healthy clear nails in a matter of minutes. ClearSense technology has no problem penetrating the nail through to the nail bed at the appropriate depth, applying heat that kills dermatophytes and allowing for the growth of clear healthy nails. The treatment is fast and takes only fifteen to twenty minutes. As an aside, ClearSense can also effectively treat warts and other related dermatologic conditions.

Adding to the effectiveness, ClearSense has integrated real-time temperature sensing in the range from 38 to 48 degrees centigrade. This provides instant audio and visual feedback to indicate that the optimal temperature for clinical efficacy has been reached while maintaining patient comfort. For added safety, the handpiece provides alerts to prevent overheating and blisters. This feature is particularly important for diabetics and patients with compromised sensation.

While the treatment works instantly, there is no immediate visual change due to the time it takes for new nail growth. Most nail infections improve considerably after one treatment. More severe infections may require up to four separate treatments.
