Lacuna Method is a simple and effective treatment for fungal nail infections. This relatively new nail fungus treatment is changing the way Podiatrists deal with fungal nail infections. The Lacuna Method treatment for fungal nails works by painlessly drilling many tiny micro holes (fenestration) into the infected nail plate, all the way through to the skin under the nail (the nail bed). Following the first part of the treatment where the nails are micro drilled, the nails are then treated with Terbinafine spray, which passes through the holes directly to the source of infection, the infected nail bed.
For better results, it is recommended that a patient completes 4 sessions, over a period of 6 months, for their treatment plan to be successful. Thereafter, a follow-up session is required to review the progress and assess if any further treatment may be required.
When at home, the patient should apply the anti-fungal agent daily. Upon daily application, the infection in the nail bed will clear and the damaged nail will grow out. It should be noted that, without delivery of a fungicidal agent to the source of the infection (nail bed), clearance of the infection is highly unlikely.
The micro holes will be temporary. When the infection clears, the nail will grow out over approximately 6-months.
