INTRODUCING ONYFIX NAIL CORRECTION SYSTEM
Onyfix is the newest technology used to treat ingrown and involuted toenails using a composite nail brace that reshapes the nail and ensures natural nail growth. At our AFCN foot clinics, our Foot Nurses will create and adapt an individualised system that treats your ingrown or involuted (pincer) nail. Onyfix acts as a composite brace allowing the nail to reshape and naturally grow out. The entire process is pain-free, from start to finish. Ingrown or involuted toenails can be painful and cause many complications. Onyfix provides an alternative solution for patients who may not be suited for ingrown nail surgery, needle phobia, diabetic, pregnant or breast feeding, age, vascular disease etc. Read more to learn about Onyfix system on how its versatile and innovative in treating all forms of involuted and ingrown toenails. HOW DOES IT WORK? Onyfix is a revolutionary nail correction system, which helps ingrown or involuted toenails grow back to their natural shape without the need for surgery or any pain. Onyfix uses a hardened composite material which is cured by a LED light and acts like a brace on the nail plate. This ensures that the nail remains in the correct shape as it grows from the base of the nail until the end, thus reshaping the pathway for the new nail growth. The Onyfix system is cured to your toenail for about 2-3 months. When the toenail grows, the Onyfix will grow with the toenail and helps the toenail grow in the correct position. During this period additional bands can be applied to the toenail to ensure that the desired result is obtained. We recommend 3-4 bands with 6 weekly appointment intervals. Once complete, the composite is removed and the nail continues to grow naturally.
- Onyfix primer is applied evenly across the nail palate to help adhere the composite to the nail plate
- The Onyfix composite is applied to the base of the toenail. Occasionally, an additional band can be applied to the top of the nail whilst lifting up the nail using a probe
- The primer is cured with LED light for 10 seconds
- The bands are then cured with LED light for 30 seconds
