Keryflex Nail Restoration
KeryFlex Nail Restoration is a painless, in-office application that restores the appearance of an individual’s natural nails. This system allows for a certified provider to remodel an individual’s damaged nails affected by fungus, defects and trauma.
While the look achieved is similar to acrylic or gel nail extensions provided at nail salons, unlike acrylic and gel solutions, the composite resin (material) creates a flexible, but durable, non-porous nail that allows the remaining natural nail to grow. The KeryFlex nail is an immediate cosmetic improvement providing a natural-looking nail. It is unaffected by acetone, nail polishes or detergents.
Keryflex is the right cosmetic option for aesthetic concerns of patients with toenail issues because:
Provides for cosmetically pleasing nails during most antifungal treatments
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
Is unaffected by acetone, nail polishes or detergent
Medical and Diabetic Pedicures
While a professional pedicure can help you feel pampered and confident in summer sandals, there are health risks associated with nail trimming, cuticle clipping, and foot soaking. Many salons are not aware of medical considerations that should be in place when performing pedicures; sanitary and sterilization standards for soaking tubs and instruments at salons are often compromised, leading to patients contracting fungal infections of the toenail. Likewise, in many instanced, technicians clip the cuticles too closely to the margins, exposing the skin tissue to bacterial penetration.
Diabetic patients are especially susceptible to these issues and need extra care to ensure they have no skin breakage that can lead to infections and ulcers.
At our office, we offer physician-supervised medical pedicures, closely following the clinical and OSHA standards that protect the health of your feet:
Instruments that are sterilized with the same autoclave machines used in hospitals, following the same protocols used on surgical instruments
Surfaces that are sanitized with the same solutions used in hospitals, after every single patient - with no exception.
Technicians who are trained and supervised by a podiatrist, following all medical guidelines that protect you from contracting diseases.
