The Onyfix nail correction system is a pain free treatment that can be used on nearly all types of involuted and ingrown toenails.
Onyfix treats ingrown toenails by forcing the nail to return to its natural shape. The Onyfix system achieves this by using a hardened composite that is fixed onto your toenail and shaped accordingly. After the composite hardens, the nail correction system fixes the nail in its proximal shape. It does this without any tension and therefore without any pain.
The Onyfix nail correction system ensures that the shape created is retained as the toenail grows. After around 30 weeks the toenail should have grown to its natual shape. Once this has happened, the treatment has been successfully completed and it is time for your Footsmart podiatrist to remove the Onyfix nail correction system.
Onyfix is loved by both podiatrists and patients as it is simple, painfree and cost effective as it requires only two appointments spaced out over a few months.
The Benefits of using Onyfix:
