A: PACT is an abbreviation for the term Photodynamic Antimicrobial Therapy. This method of treatment uses light to effectively kill off bacteria and fungus off the skin and nails.
It is important to have the correct diagnosis about your nails before commencing any treatment.
There are several conditions that can mimic fungal nail infections and damage your nails.
About PACT Fungal Nail Therapy::
Quick and Effective
No harmful side effects
No treatment required at home
At Walk This Way Podiatry we will assess your nails first and confirm that diagnosis of a fungal nail infection. You may be required to have a sample of the nail tested through pathology to confirm an infection.
About the treatment: :
Your nail will be trimmed and filed to remove as much of the affected nail as possible in preparation for the treatment.
A light sensitive gel is applied and left to penetrate the nail for 10 minutes.
The PACT Unit Lamp, an LED light, is then applied over the nail for 9.5 minutes. This interaction of the PACT light with the gel causes a reaction killing fungal nail cells and bacteria on the nail.
The nail will become warm but does not cause any pain or side effects.

Over on the blog I'm talking about foot fungus, and specifically fungal toenails. I've been trying to get rid of my fungal nails since it started as a weird side effect of pregnancy. Did you have any crazy symptoms when you were pregnant?
The painless therapy called Clearanail involves drilling very precise 0.4mm holes into the plate of an infected nail, allowing treatments to directly access the whole nail bed.
Clinically proven Clearanail is an innovative new concept developed using Controlled Micro Penetration, which creates micro pathways in the nail plate allowing deeper access to the areas of infection without damaging the nail bed beneath. Each of the tiny holes can be drilled in less than five seconds.
Treatments can then be applied leading to clearing of the infection and healthy-looking nails in a short space of time. Visible results are guaranteed within two weeks.
As this is a relatively new treatment and there is still a number of people out there not sure of the effectiveness of the treatment (including myself!) I have been undergoing a trial of Clearanail. A number of patients happily took part and so far I have seen fantastic results.
Still not sure? Why not give me a ring at clinic and we can discuss you needs. I am also happy to provide a free consultation as to whether Clearanail would benefit you. Just give me a ring 0161 477 4747 or 07434727952 and I would be happy to discuss. #completepodiatry#stockport#manchester#offerton#podiatry#podiatrist#feet#fungalnail#nails#socialmediamarketing#socialmedia#instagram#clearanail
With 1 in 10 people in the UK experiencing fungal nail infections, toenail fungus is actually far more common than you may think. Whether the infection is in your fingers or toes, the Nuriss advanced laser protocol can quickly and effectively eliminate your nail fungus at the source. In both cases, nail fungus is treated by combining two lasers. The first laser will crack the spore’s outer shell while the second laser will completely eradicate the fungus within the nail, progressively working to improve your nails appearance as well as giving you confidence to get your feet out in style this summer.
