What is KeryFlex?

KeryFlex refers to an in-office nail restoration procedure that your podiatrist at City Podiatry uses to restore the appearance of your nail. They correct any damage related to fungus, defects, or trauma using a composite resin nail. The composite resin nail creates a nonporous and durable cover that enables your nail to grow back correctly.

The procedure consists of three components:

  • Bonding agent
  • Resin
  • UV cured top coat

These three components work to improve your nail’s appearance permanently. KeryFlex comes in three different colors: natural, opaque, or transparent. Your doctor at City Podiatry discusses the best color options to match both your needs and the rest of your nails.

How does KeryFlex work?

KeryFlex works similarly to a bonding procedure in dentistry. During your appointment at City Podiatry, your doctor applies the resin material to the surface of the affected toenail. They then use a special light to force the material to harden. Once completed, the resin nail looks just like the rest of your nails.

Who doesn’t qualify for KeryFlex nail restoration?

The team at City Podiatry recommends that you consider a different cosmetic solution if you have:

  • Peripheral vascular disease (PVD)
  • Arterial insufficiency
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Pigmented lesions on your nail
  • Ingrown toenails

You should also stay clear of KeryFlex if you’re pregnant or nursing.

What are the benefits of KeryFlex nail restoration?

KeryFlex is a cutting-edge procedure that can be performed in a single visit and immediately delivers appearance-enhancing results.
