KeryFlex Toenail Restoration offers a non-painful treatment within clinics to enhance the look of natural nails. This technique enables skilled podiatrists to reshape nails compromised by fungal infections, defects, or injuries.

Utilising a composite resin, the treatment forms a strong, yet pliable, impenetrable nail, encouraging growth of the existing natural nail. KeryFlex nails deliver an instant aesthetic enhancement with a realistic nail appearance. They are resistant to acetone, various nail polishes, and cleaning agents.

How Does KeryFlex Toenail Restoration Work?

KeryFlex Toenail Restoration is akin to the dental process of bonding a tooth. In this procedure, a resin is applied to the nail and then solidified using a specific type of light, effectively "bonding" the resin to the nail to enhance or repair its appearance. After the resin is attached to the nail, your foot care specialist can refine and contour it to achieve a natural look. This Toenail Restoration process can be completed in just one appointment with your foot care provider.

The KeryFlex System has three components:

KeryFlex Bonding Agent optimizes the adhesion of the KeryFlex Resin to the natural nail.

KeryFlex Resin is a lightweight, medical-grade gel used to build up the nail and allows for sculpting and contouring

KeryFlex Sealant is a UV curing top coat to seal the KeryFlex nail making it non-porous and non-permeable.

What to Expect?

When you and your foot care specialist agree that KeryFlex is the right choice, the affected nail will be cut and filed down as much as necessary, using either a nail clipper or an electronic file. After preparing the nail, the restoration process begins. A bonding agent is first applied, followed by a resin. This resin is then set using ultraviolet light. The nail is subsequently shaped, molded, and smoothed out. A sealant is applied at the end and cured with the light one last time. Typically, this procedure takes less than 30 minutes, although the duration may vary based on the nail's condition and the number of nails requiring restoration.

When to Avoid?

KeryFlex Nail Restoration is not advisable for individuals suffering from peripheral vascular disease, arterial insufficiency, peripheral neuropathy, or those with suspicious pigmented lesions on their nails or ingrown toenails. Additionally, it should be avoided by pregnant or nursing individuals, and those with known allergies or sensitivities to its components.
