How Does The Onyfix System Work So Effectively & Painlessly On Ingrown Toenails?
Onyfix is a system that facilitates the regrowth of ingrown or curved toenails without resorting to surgery or experiencing any discomfort.
Here’s a breakdown of its functioning; Onyfix utilises a topical application that is hardened using LED light. It acts as a brace for your nail ensuring it grows in the shape from root, to tip. This alters the growth pattern of the nail over time and painlessly and safely returns it to the correct shape.
You will wear Onyfix on your toenail for 2 to 3 months. While your nail grows Onyfix adapts accordingly guiding it to grow properly. Additional applications may be applied to your nail during this time to ensure the best outcome.
Typically we recommend 3 – 4 bands and schedule check ups every 6 weeks. Once the procedure is complete we remove the material allowing your nail to continue growing naturally as intended.
The Onyfix Nail Correction Process Is Suitable For Conditions like:
1. Ingrown Toenails
2. Pincer Toenails
3. Split Toenails
Now Lets Understand How Onyfix Differs From Nail Bracing...
While both methods work to correct nails painlessly, Onyfix functions as a brace but without using wires or a brace to pull on growing nails. Instead it allows your nails to naturally grow into their shape without any tension or pain.
Traditional nail bracing can sometimes be uncomfortable when applied and may lead to inflammation. Moreover these braces have a tendency to slip off or cause discomfort when wearing shoes.
Onyfix offers an alternative, for treating ingrown toenails that ensures comfort during application and throughout the treatment process.
