Keryflex Q & A


What is Keryflex?

Keryflex is a cosmetic procedure that restores the natural look of your toenails. Keryflex is ideal for patients whose toes are affected by a fungal infection or trauma that leads to unsightly toenails. Here are a few of the advantages of using Keryflex:

  • Your new toenails look and feel natural
  • Allows your real nails underneath to grow out naturally
  • Materials compatible with your tissue so they don’t cause any irritation
  • Forms a barrier against moisture
  • Uses materials that bend and flex with the movement of your feet
  • Not affected by nail polish, acetone, or soaps and detergents
  • Need only one visit to have Keryflex applied to your toes

Keryflex is also available in three colors:

  • Clear
  • Natural
  • Opaque

When is Keryflex not appropriate?

While Keryflex is safe for most people, if you have any of the following, you shouldn’t use Keryflex:

  • Peripheral vascular disease
  • Arterial insufficiency
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Pigmented lesions on your nail
  • Ingrown toenails

Also, if you’re pregnant, nursing, or have an allergy against any of the ingredients, you should avoid Keryflex nail restoration.

How does Keryflex work?

The Keryflex nail restoration system is not a procedure where acrylic nails are simply glued to your existing toenails. The Keryflex system is a comprehensive three-step process that bonds materials to your nails, materials that still allow your natural nails to continue their healing and growing processes.

First, Dr. Charisse Dunn applies the Keryflex bonding agent to your natural nail for adhesion.

Next, she uses a resin to build up your nail, which is a gel that can be shaped and contoured to look as natural as possible.

Lastly, Dr. Charisse Dunn puts a curing sealant over your new toenail that is non-porous and non-permeable.

Dr. Dunn performs the entire procedure in one office visit, allowing you to walk out with natural, healthy-looking toenails.
