Introducing Onyfix: A Painless Ingrown Nail Treatment

We are happy to announce that we will now be able to provide our patients with a non-invasive, effective solution for nail problems using Onyfix’s innovative nail correction technology. 


What is Onyfix? 




Onyfix Application Process  


The damaged or ingrown nail is prepared for treatment by removing debris and oils and filing it smooth. Then, the Onyfix compound is applied onto the nail and shaped. The composite is then cured and set to the nail utilizing the Onylux Blue LED light. The composite will act like a brace on the nail plate exerting mild pressure to ensure that the nail remains in the correct shape as it grows from the base of the nail to the end, thus reshaping the pathway for new nail growth.


The total treatment time per application is approximately 10-20 minutes.

Based on the severity of the involuted nail, some patients may need multiple applications.


Prior to your appointment:

We kindly ask that you thoroughly remove all nail polish and avoid wearing tight or pointed shoes so that the application can properly set.
