KeryFlex Nail Restoration is a painless, in-office application that restores the appearance of an individual’s natural nails. This system allows for a certified Podiatrist to remodel an individual’s damaged nails affected by fungus, defects and trauma. The composite resin creates a flexible, but durable, non-porous nail that allows the remaining natural nail to grow. The KeryFlex nail is an immediate cosmetic improvement providing a natural-looking nail. It is unaffected by acetone, nail polishes or detergents.

We use medical grade sterilisation of all equipment providing a safe sterile environment

In as little as 30-45 minutes our podiatrists can create a realistic, natural looking nail which overlies a damaged nail and is almost completely undetectable. Keryflex uses this layers of a polymer resin and special activators to create a durable, yet flexible artificial nail when exposed to certain frequency of UV light.
Once the nail is in place it can be left natural as it will mimic a real looking nail or painted with nail polish and have nail polish remover applied.

The benefits of this treatment is confidence that your new nail has been applied with sterile instruments and techniques with no concerns of cross contamination leading to infection. The resin material will not further damage the underlying nail like acrylics and gels can. It is also more comfortable and thinner than a conventional “fake nail” and is designed to look natural and seamless with the new nail growing through. This product is both flexible and durable and can last up to 3 months on certain nails.


Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Why is Keryflex beneficial to Acrylic artificial nails?

A: A number of reasons. Have you smelt the odour of an acrylic nail application? There are harmful chemicals in the acrylic nail that can damage your natural nail and nail bed. Additionally, the glue used for the acrylic nail acts in a way in that if you were to know the nail hard it will pull your natural nail off (ouch) as well as the acrylic. Keryflex bond will not pull your natural nail off, or damage the nail or bed.


Q: How long will each application last?

A: The keryflex nail may remain in place for upto 3 months, however we recommend replacing 4-6 weekly to clean and monitor natural nail growth.


Q: How many applications will I get from 1 Keryflex Kit?

A: Your kit will contain 3 bottles, a bond, the resin and a sealer. Depending on the size of your nail plates, we find we get around 10 nails out of a kit. So if you are applying to only 1 nail this may be 10 applications. If you have 2 nails needing Keryflex you will get 5 applications


Q: If my natural nail has fallen off due to injury, can Keryflex still be applied?

A: In short, yes it can still be applied as long as there isn’t an open wound. If there is ‘some’ nail, even a very tiny one, it will act as an anchor so that the Keryflex will last longer. However, we can apply the bond directly to the nail bed alone. If in doubt, come in to have our podiatrists have a look and advise you.


Q: Can I claim on Private Health Cover?

A: If you have cover for podiatry you will be able to claim your appointment charge. You will not get rebate for the Keryflex kit which is a one-off payment on your 1st appointment.


Q: How long does it take?

A: The initial Keryflex treatment takes about 45-60 mins this allows our Podiatrist to assess the nails and prep the area. This includes time to bond the new nail to previous nail.

Subsequent treatments take approximately 30-45 minutes.
