Onyfix Nail Correction in the Bayside Area
Onyfix is a nail correction system that offers pain free and safe treatment of ingrowing, involuted and split toe nails.
Ingrown or involuted toenails can be painful and can cause many complications. Onyfix provides an alternative solution for clients who may not be suitable for an ingrown toenail surgery, diabetic, pregnant, breastfeeding or have arterial compromise to their lower limb.
It involves a pain free composite application to the base of the nail by one of our experienced podiatrists. This acts as a brace and allows for the nail to reshape and naturally grow out in the correct position over several months.
Before applying Onyfix we will file and smoothen your toenail to flatten your toenail for application. All nail folds will be cleared of nail debris and the entire nail plate cleaned with a cotton swab.
1. Onyfix primer is applied evenly across the nail palate to help adhere the composite to the nail plate.
2. The primer is cured with LED light for 10 seconds
3. The Onyfix composite is applied to the base of the toenail. Occasional an additional band can be applied to the top of the nail whilst lifting up the nail using a probe
4. The bands are then cured with LED light for 30 seconds.
