Overview: Keryflex Nail Restoration is an innovative cosmetic procedure designed to restore the appearance of damaged or discolored toenails. This treatment offers a durable, flexible, and natural-looking solution, ideal for patients looking to improve the aesthetic of their nails affected by fungal infections, trauma, or other conditions.

Causes: Nail damage can result from a variety of factors, including fungal infections, injuries, congenital defects, or chronic conditions such as psoriasis. These issues can cause nails to become thickened, discolored, brittle, or deformed, significantly impacting both appearance and self-confidence.

Pre-Appointment Preparation: To ensure the best results with Keryflex Nail Restoration, please follow these steps before your appointment:

  • Clean Your Feet: Thoroughly clean your feet and nails to remove any dirt or debris.
  • Avoid Lotions or Oils: Do not apply lotions, oils, or nail polish to your nails or feet on the day of your appointment.
  • Nail Integrity: Ensure that at least 25% of the natural nail is intact. This is necessary to provide a medium for the resin to bond effectively.

Treatment Options: Keryflex Nail Restoration involves the application of a resin that bonds to the existing nail, creating a natural-looking, durable nail that allows for normal nail growth. Here are the steps involved in the Keryflex procedure:

  1. Preparation: The damaged nail is trimmed and shaped to create a suitable base for the application of Keryflex resin.
  2. Application: A bonding agent is applied to the natural nail, followed by layers of Keryflex resin. This resin is shaped to mimic the appearance of a natural nail.
  3. Curing: Each layer of resin is cured using a special UV light, ensuring a strong and durable bond.
  4. Finishing Touches: The restored nail is buffed and shaped to achieve a smooth, natural finish.


  • Aesthetic Improvement: Achieve natural-looking nails that enhance the overall appearance of your feet.
  • Durability: The Keryflex nail is flexible and durable, accommodating normal nail growth and activity.
  • Immediate Results: Patients leave the office with improved nail appearance after a single session.
  • Versatility: Suitable for both toenails and fingernails, accommodating a wide range of nail conditions.

Maintenance: Keryflex nails require minimal maintenance. Patients can enjoy the benefits of beautifully restored nails, with periodic touch-ups as recommended by Dr. McKeown.

Why Choose Keryflex: Keryflex is an ideal solution for individuals seeking to improve the appearance of their damaged nails without resorting to invasive treatments or prolonged medication courses. It is particularly beneficial for those who have experienced unsuccessful treatments for fungal infections or have sustained nail trauma.
