You Can Restore the Beauty of Your Damaged Toenails

I am confronted on a daily basis with men and women who think their toenails are ugly.  Especially here in Houston, where open-toed shoes and sandals are commonly worn year-round, people are embarrassed to expose their toes.

Damage to toenails can be caused by a number of factors.  Fungal toenails are common, due to Houston's heat and humidity and shoes harboring the fungus.  Even after treatment, the disfigurement of the nails can remain.  Trauma is another major cause - stubbing a toe, being stepped on, or dropping something on your toenail can cause permanent damage.  Runners and other athletes develop a condition appropriately called "runner's toenails" due to the impact of the toes against the end of the shoe.  Sometimes the trauma could cause the nail to no longer grow or be missing altogether.

No one - women and men alike - enjoy others seeing gnarly toenails.  Acrylic false nails were available for fingernails but most find them uncomfortable in shoes.  They also suffocate the toenails, causing more damage.

I was introduced to a product that I didn't think existed - KeryFlex.  It's premise:  a healthy and comfortable toenail replacement that acts and feels like a natural toenails.  It can be shaped and polished, just like a real nail too!  KeryFlex uses a flexible resin to reconstruct a new toenail in place of a nail that is damaged or missing.  Hard to believe?  I thought so too, but I spoke to doctors in the northeast that have been using it and they told me that their patients love it!

Our office was one of only two podiatrists in Houston trained to provide KeryFlex.  So far, everyone loves it!  the procedure is completely painless and requires no laser or surgery.  It only takes about 20 minutes and you're ready to go!
