Posts for tag: Keryflex
While I was in medical school I learned of an immediate cosmetic enhancement for fungal or damaged toenails called Keryflex.
Keryflex has been named one of the “Top Ten Innovations” in Podiatry and yet it is a procedure rarely performed in most offices. In our practice Keryflex is performed weekly.
I became a certified provider for the Keryflex system and technique which creates a non-pourous, flexible, realistic looking nail. This nail can be painted, filed and buffed and is unharmed by acetone.
One of the reasons why I love this technique and application is because I can immediately make a positive impact on my patient’s life. Fungal toenails or those that have suffered damage can cause not only pain but challenge how one feels about their physical appearance.
I have been able to provide added confidence for big events like weddings and trips but also everyday life. One of my proudest moments was when a patient walked out of my office grinning from ear to ear, head held high, wearing sandals for the first time in twenty years - something she had avoided due to her severe fungal toenails. She instantly had healthy looking nails and I treated her fungus with laser and topicals while the Keryflex grew out with her own nails.
I am happy to answer any questions or concerns - please contact our Huntington office for a consultation if interested in Keryflex.

With the holidays quickly approaching I often speak to my patients about giving themselves the gift of nail restoration. Immediate cosmetic freedom from nail fungus, psoriasis, trauma, bacterial infections and ingrown toenails.
While in medical school I was trained in the Keryflex nail restoration system which is a unique resin based system applied to individual nails by certified Podiatrists. Keryflex is a safe, non-systemic in office application that restores the appearance of your nails.
This system does not irritate nails or skin and allows patients to have cosmetically pleasing nails while treating conditions topically or orally. Not only does the Keryflex nail move and feel like a normal nail but it can be filed, buffed and painted. Keryflex has been named one of the Top Ten Innovations in podiatric care by Podiatry Today.
Keryflex nails last patients depending on nail conditions being treated, shoe gear and activity levels anywhere from three weeks to six months. The Keryflex nail will grow out with your natural nail. Most of my patients schedule an application before a wedding or winter vacation.
The Keryflex nail is individually tailored to each patient and has no needed aftercare. Patients walk out with an immediate improvement in appearance and self esteem. There is no need to hide your feet in boots this winter or discontinue pedicures while waiting for your treated fungal nails to grow out (which can take up to a year).
Please contact our Huntington or Manhasset offices for more information on a Keryflex consultation.
