Nail Clinic

The Nail Clinic is conducted on a monthly basis and provides specialist management of a variety of nail conditions including abnormal pigmentation, lichen planus of the nail, paronychia and management of psoriasis affecting the nail.

Iontophoresis is a method of forcing a drug or chemical across a barrier, such as skin or nail, using an electrical current and is a treatment sometimes used in the clinic.

Nail surgery

Nail surgery can be performed under local anesthetic. During surgery part or the whole nail may be removed and a specimen of the nail bed may be taken and sent to pathology for analysis.

This treatment can impact your daily lifestyle for 1-3 weeks, while healing takes place. Nail surgery is discussed during your initial consultation.
