why?

  • Delivers immediate and significant cosmetic enhancement after one visit

  • Looks and feels completely natural

  • Provides for cosmetically pleasing nails during most antifungal treatment regimens

  • Unlike rigid acrylic nails, flexibility allows the restored nails to bend with the natural movement of toes and feet

  • Is compatible with human tissue and will not irritate or cause further damage to the underlying nail or skin

  • Allows for the remaining nail to grow out naturally

  • Is non-porous and will not allow moisture to penetrate between the natural and prosthetic nail

  • Applied in the sanitary setting of a foot care provider

  • Is unaffected by acetone, nail polishes or detergents

who is this for?

Our nail restoration is a cosmetic procedure and not intended to cure a disease. Ideal candidates have mild to moderate impairment caused by:

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Our procedure involves applying a resin material and hardening it with a special light, “bonding” the material to the nail to restore or improve the nail appearance.

Once bound to the nail, our podiatrist can smooth and shape the nail to appear natural. Nail Restoration can be done in a single visit.

15% of natural nail is required.

Time between applications is 6-8 weeks.

what can you expect?

The damaged nail is trimmed and filed down as much as possible. Once the nail is prepared, the process of restoring the appearance of your nail begins. After applying a bonding agent, the resin is applied. This material is hardened with an ultraviolet light. The nail is then molded, shaped and filed smooth. Lastly, a sealant will be applied and cured with the light one final time. In most cases, the procedure can be completed in 30 minutes or less but depends on the condition of your nail and number of nails needing to be restored.

Other points to note

Do not apply product 2 days prior to procedure. The restored nail is unaffected by acetone, nail polishes or detergents, so nail polish maybe applied after.

This is not a fungal treatment. If you are using a topical anti fungal treatment, it may be applied around the cuticle area but not the proximal edge.

This is not used for clients who have peripheral vascular disease, arterial insufficiency, peripheral neuropathy, suspicious pigmented lesions on the nail or in-grown toenails. It should be avoided in patients who are pregnant, nursing or known to be sensitive or allergic to any of its ingredients.
