We recently added Keryflex Nail restoration to our many available treatments at Austin Foot Health Specialists. In just one day, we can make a person’s nails appear clear and healthier, even ready for a coat of polish. The flexible, porous, medical-grade nail is far superior to artificial nails from salons and offers numerous unique benefits, especially to those suffering from toenail fungus or who have started onychomycosis treatment.
Keryflex nail restoration is a great option for those with the following toenail conditions:
- Toenail Fungus or Onychomycosis
- Oddly shaped nails due to injury
- Splitting or brittle nails
- Discolored nails
- Spoon-shaped nails
Don’t risk infection at a traditional nail salon. Instead, seek a quality replacement for damaged nails in a medical office. The Keryflex system allows the medicine to transfer down to the nail bed, making it an ideal choice for patients treating toenail fungus (onychomycosis) or other nail conditions with topical medications.
Benefits after laser toenail fungus treatment
Even after receiving treatment for toenail fungus, the old, damaged nail must grow out before the healthy, clear nail is present. This process often takes six months.
With Keryflex, patients can have normal-appearing nails the same day as laser treatment or the start of topical treatment. In toenail fungus treatment, the thick, infected nail is typically removed in a painless process called debridement. Whether a physician is treating the infection with a laser or topical medication, debridement allows the treatment to better penetrate the infected nail. After debridement, the nail appears rough and dented. With a Keryflex application, the patient can leave the office on the same day with ready-for-the-public nails. Best of all, Keryflex allows patients to continue to apply medication because it is created with a porous material that, unlike the gels or acrylics that you find in a nail salon, allows medications to pass through to the nail bed. And unlike salon materials, it breathes, preventing any latent fungus from being trapped underneath and allowed to thrive.
