Introducing KeryFlex… a Professional Nail Restoration System

What is it?

The KeryFlex Nail Restoration System is a safe, nonsystemic in-office application that restores the appearance of patient’s natural nails. The product allows the podiatrist to remodel patients’ nails affected by fungus, nail dystrophies and trauma. The patented resin creates a flexible, non-porous nail that allows the remaining natural nails to grow. The KeryFlex nail provides a natural looking nail during oral anti-fungal therapies. It also provides an immediate cosmetic improvement to complement laser fungal treatments. The KeryFlex nail is durable and unaffected by acetone, nail polishes or detergents and restores the appearance of the nail and your confidence! You’ll never have to worry when wearing sandals again!
