Onyfix® Nail Correction System

For those suffering with involuted and pincer nails and also who have a tendency to develop ingrown nail.

Onyfix is a gel brace technique developed in Germany. When applied to the nail plate (close to the matrix where your nail is formed) it encourages the nail to grow outwards and eventually stop involuting/ingrowing.

Treatment is pain-free, non-invasive, suitable for adults, children and diabetic or high risk patients.

Onyfix is a Class 1 Medical device and has been rigorously clinically tested on diabetics.

Painless treatment

I will prepare your nail prior to application and clear any nail debris that is causing you discomfort. The Onyfix® composite is then modelled on to your nail and cured with a special LED Blue Light. Your nail is now fixed into shape and the correction starts to take place. I will review you regularly and reapply as necessary to achieve the desired results.

Instant relief

The application of Onyfix band onto the nail plate brings instant relief, without the need for nail surgery.
Within approximately 9 months the nail will return to its natural position and shape.

No activity restrictions

Just 24 hours after application you are free to carry on as before – bathing, showering, swimming, etc.
Topicals & nail polishes can also be used.

At 36 weeks

FAQs

How long does it take to apply Onyfix?

Onyfix can usually be applied during your allotted appointment time as it only takes about 10 minutes to apply, but I will guide you through each step.

How long does the Onyfix band last for on the nail?

Onyfix bands will usually last at least 3 months or longer. In the majority of cases it stays in place until it grows right out with the nail. You may have to have more than one band applied as your nail is corrected over time, depending on the severity of the deformity.

How do I know if I would be a suitable candidate for an Onyfix treatment?

I will be happy to assess your suitability for an Onyfix treatment and advise you. Generally speaking Onyfix is ideal for ingrown nails and pincer nails including children’s nails.

I have an infected ingrown toenail, can I have Onyfix applied?

Please arrange a consultation with me, I can advise you. The infection must be treated and cleared before you have an Onyfix treatment, this may include antibiotics.
