KeryFlex Named One of the Top Ten Innovations in Podiatric Care by Podiatry Today!
For a variety of reasons, some people are much more likely to develop toenail fungus and other conditions that cause the nail to lose its natural appearance. While medicines are available to treat the fungus, these compounds may take some time to be effective and may never restore the nail to its normal appearance.
KeryFlexTM is a safe, nonsystemic in-office application that restores the appearance of patient’s natural nails. The product allows the podiatrist to remodel patient’s nails affected by fungus, nail dystrophies, and trauma. The patented resin creates a flexible, non-porous nail that allows the remaining natural nails to grow. The KeryFlexTM nail provides a natural looking nail during oral anti-fungal therapies. It also provides an immediate cosmetic improvement to compliment laser fungal treatments. The KeryFlexTM nail is durable and unaffected by acetone, nail polishes, or detergents.
Our podiatrists have been trained in a new technique KeryFlexTM Nail Restoration System that improves the appearance of nails damaged by fungus and other conditions.
In as little as 15 minutes, our podiatrist can create a realistic natural-looking nail in place of the damaged nail. Our podiatrist will remove most of the damaged nail, using a special nail clipper and file or dremel. After the old, damaged nail has been removed, the podiatrist will begin the process of restoring the appearance of your nail: he will apply a bonding agent to attach the new nail to the remnant of your natural nail. Next, our podiatrist will model KeryFlexTM Resin to your nail bed, cure the resin with a special frequency of ultraviolet light for two minutes, and then reshape the nail further, if necessary.
When our podiatrist has completed the procedure, you will leave the office with a natural-looking nail. Women may put nail polish on this nail, and they can apply nail polish remover to the nail—the nail will not be affected in the least. Men and women can engage in their normal exercise routines after their toe nails have been remodeled by KeryFlexTM.
