KeryFlex is a painless, in-office application that restores the appearance of an individual’s natural nails. It 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.
On average, the application of KeryFlex Bonding Agent, KeryFlex Resin, and KeryFlex Sealant, with UV light curing time included, is 15-30 minutes depending on the how many nails needs to be reconstructed.
Unlike acrylic, 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 does not bind to skin, therefore, the presence of at least 15% of the natural nail is recommended.
Nail polish maybe applied immediately after application as the KeryFlex nail is unaffected by acetone, nail polishes or detergents.
Rarely, a KeryFlex nail may detach from the natural nail. This can occur with repeated trauma to the KeryFlex nail. For example, with long-distance running, when individual has a small natural nail segment or the nail edge has extended beyond the tip of the toe.
The interval between applications will vary according to the individual, but in general, the time between applications is 6 to 8 weeks.
You must wait at least a month after laser treatment & at home care to get KeryFlex. This is to make sure that the fungus is improving before putting a barrier over it.
