What is KeryFlex?
KeryFlex™ is a nail restoration system that uses polymer resins and special activators to create a durable, yet flexible artificial nail when exposed to a certain frequency of ultraviolet light.
How Does KeryFlex™ Work?
- Nail bed is prepared, with debridement of the nail
- KeryFlex™ Bond is brushed onto the nail plate and nail bed
- KeryFlex™ Resin builds up the nail and allows sculpting and contouring of the nail
- KeryFlex™ Seal is applied after the modeling process is completed
- Ultraviolet light hardens the substances within 2 minutes
- Polymerization process bonds the synthetic resin to the nail bed
- KeryFlex™ resin is extremely strong yet very elastic which adjusts to the rolling motion of the foot
- Allows the newly restored nail to function
How long does it take to apply KeryFlex™?
On average, in experienced hands, a podiatrist can complete the application of KeryFlex™ Bond, KeryFlex™ Resin, and KeryFlex™ Seal, with curing time included, in 10-15 minutes for the hallux. Initially, you should allow 15 minutes for an application of KeryFlex™ to the hallux.
After KeryFlex™ is applied, how soon must the patient return for another application?
The interval between applications will vary according to the patient, but in general, the time between applications is six to eight weeks.
What if the patient wants to have a KeryFlex? nail removed?
If the patient wants to have the nail removed, the podiatrist can dremel the artificial nail until it is no longer attached to the natural nail
