KeryFlex™: Beautiful Toes without the Wait

KeryFlex™ Nail Restoration - Dallas TX Foot SpecialistDistorted, discolored nails from fungal infections can be embarrassing. They change the whole appearance of your foot from healthy to unhealthy. Many different treatments are available to eliminate the fungus and return your toes to health. However, while the affected toes are healing, they still look damaged. If you’ve taken the step to treat your nails, and you’re concerned about their appearance, you don’t have to hide your feet. The KeryFlex™ nail restoration procedure produces a realistic nail substitute that allows you to show off your toes while your natural nail tissue grows underneath.

KeryFlex™: A Different Kind of Artificial Nail

The KeryFlex™ technology is a specially developed resin gel. It’s attached to a portion of your damaged nail tissue, covering it without sticking to your skin. That way your natural nail can regrow underneath it. The gel substance is hard enough to protect your toe from damage, but flexible enough to handle your foot’s movement. It can be shaped to follow the contours of your nail and matched to the color as well. It’s safe to use polish and polish remover on it, so if you want to decorate your toes, you can.

When you come in for a treatment, Dr. Joel W. Brook, Dr. David R. Northcutt, Dr. Irene Arroyo and Dr. John Baca first debride the affected tissues. Then the resin is carefully brushed onto the nail bed and the layers built up. From there our expert doctors can sculpt the resin until it matches the curve and shape of your natural nail. Once you and the doctors are satisfied with the result, the gel is sealed and allowed to dry. Then a final layer of a bonding substance is applied, and everything is hardened under an ultraviolet light. Once the resin has set, the nail is buffed for smoothness and you are sent on your way with beautiful toes.

The whole process takes roughly 10-15 minutes per toe, and the nail lasts between six to eight weeks before needing to be reapplied. During that time, your new nail is still growing underneath the artificial one– healthy and protected from damage.

Benefits to the KeryFlex™ Procedure

For anyone who is struggling with the appearance of their toes while recovering from a fungal nail infection, this is the best option available. The procedure has no known side effects and can be reversed at any time. It works best when paired with a laser treatment or nail surgery, so that the fungus is completely eliminated from the toe before the artificial nail is applied. Each KeryFlex™ treatment uses a new kit, so you are never exposed to someone else’s infection.

You don’t have to wait months for your natural nails to heal to feel comfortable removing your socks and showing off your toes again. This special resin allows your toes to look their best while they recover.

"I did 3 EPAT treatments and it gave me tremendous relief from my plantar fasciitis. I highly recommend this for anyone who is dealing with PF. Also, the physical therapist Dr. Brook sent me too is fantastic. I am definitely on the mend and so glad I did EPAT."- All H. 5 star
"Dr Northcutt is a fantastic physician. My first surgery with him (although painful), went very well. A couple of issues (with his staff) needed to be corrected, I appreciated his calm and professional demeanor and he corrected those issues promptly. He sets the bar high (the mark of a great physician), and that is the key reason why I'm coming back to him to correct my other foot. I would highly recommend him."- She B. 5 star
"The staff at Dallas Podiatry Works could not have been more courteous, helpful, and professional in doing their job. They made me feel comfortable when I was there, which is certainly appreciated. They answered all the questions that I had and just made each visit the most pleasurable that it could be. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing this type of care."- Joseph B. 5 star
"My experience was a good one from pre-op to post -op. I saw the doctor right before my surgery.He explained the process to me and my husband. The recovery nurse was great. It was neither crowded or chaotic as some day surgery centers. My foot is doing well as I follow instructions. I look forward to my one week progress visit!"- Patricia T.5 star
"I had dealt with a painful foot problem for five months and had seen three different Doctors before seeing an article in D Magazine about Dr. Joel Brook. Dr. Brook took one look at my foot, explained the causes for my pain and set me up on a successful treatment plan. He is very knowledgeable, thorough and exhibits a caring attitude. I highly recommend him."- Ginger W. 5 star
