Keryflex Nail Restoration

KeryFlex Nail Restoration gives you the appearance of a normal nail whilst successfully undertaking active fungal nail treatment.

Keryflex is a painless, cosmetic nail treatment that restores the appearance of natural nails. Using Keryflex, Foot Foundation clinicians can remodel an individual’s damaged nails affected by fungus, defects or trauma, all without needing to step foot outside the clinic.

Keryflex’s composite resin creates a flexible, yet durable, non-porous nail, allowing the remaining natural nail to grow.

Why KeryFlex?

KeryFlex suitable for mild to moderate impairment caused by:

  • Nail fungus

  • Nail shape changes due to injury

  • Spoon-shaped nails

  • Brittle and splitting nails

  • Horizontal ridges

  • Discoloured nails

It is a cosmetic procedure and not intended to cure a disease.

What are the benefits of KeryFlex?

  • Offers another option for patients with damaged toenails

  • Delivers immediate and significant cosmetic enhancement after one visit

  • Looks and feels completely natural

  • Provides attractive nails during most antifungal treatment regimens

  • Unlike rigid acrylic nails, KeryFlex restored nails can bend with the natural movement of toes and feet

  • Doesn’t irritate or cause further damage to the underlying nail or skin

  • Allows for the remaining nail to grow out naturally

  • Non-porous, doesn’t allow moisture to penetrate between the natural and prosthetic nail

  • Sanitary application

  • Unaffected by acetone, nail polishes or detergents.

What is involved in the Keryflex process?

Once you and your Foot Foundation clinician have determined KeryFlex is right for you, the damaged nail is trimmed and filed down as much as possible with a nail clipper and/or electronic file. Once the nail is prepared, your clinician will apply a bonding agent, followed by resin, which is hardened under ultraviolet light.

​Once hard, the nail is moulded, shaped and filed smooth. A sealant is applied which is cured with the UV light one final time.

In most cases, the entire procedure can be completed in 30 minutes or less. This is dependant on the condition of your nail and number of nail restorations required.
