Temporary Nail Replacement

What is KeryFlex?

KeryFlex is a painless, in-office application that restores the appearance of an individual’s natural nails. This system allows for a certified foot care provider to remodel an individual’s damaged nails affected by fungus, defects or trauma. The composite resin 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.

How is KeryFlex different from acrylic nails?

Acrylic nails are rigid and do not bend with the natural movement of the toes. As a result, acrylic nails applied to the toenails can cause damage to the layer of tissue under the nail (nail bed). Acrylic nails are also applied using strong acids which irritate the nail bed and can further damage the existing nail. KeryFlex is flexible, yet durable, and designed specifically for the toes. It’s free of harsh acids used in salon systems. Keryflex is non-porous and will not allow moisture to permeate and get between the natural and prosthetic nails. KeryFlex’s medical grade resin is impregnated with the hydroxypyridone antifungal ingredient Piroctone.

Can nail polish be applied over a new KeryFlex nail?

A KeryFlex nail is unaffected by acetone, nail polishes or detergents. Nail polish maybe applied immediately after the KeryFlex sealant is cured and the remaining dispersion film has been removed with alcohol. (Note: We do not apply or remove nail polish. Please present with your nature nail at the consultation and application appointments.)

How long does KeryFlex last?

The need for reapplication will vary from person to person. In general, the time between applications is 6 to 8 week.

Can I get Keryflex done if I don't have a toenail?

KeryFlex does not bind to skin. Therefore the presence of at least 15% of the natural nail is necessary.

How much does KeryFlex cost?

The cost to receive KeryFlex application is $150 per toenail.

Option 1: During this in-office consultation, the health of your nail is evaluated in depth by the doctor. This type of evaluation of your toenail can be billed under your insurance. (Note: consultation and application appointments will occur on seperate days.)

Option 2: A basic evaluation of your nail can be performed by emailing a picture of your toenail. From there, we'll let you know if Keryflex may be right for you. (Note: A team member will provide directions on how to email us if you would like to use this method.)
