It is not too late to get your feet ready for the rest of the summer. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your toenails, there is a new cosmetic solution, KeryFlexTM   

The incidence of toenail fungus in the U.S. has been estimated to be 35 million people affected.  According to one study, 75% of persons diagnosed with nail fungus were embarrassed by their nails.  Nail fungus is difficult to cure, and the current topical and systemic pharmaceutical products do not have an immediate effect on nail appearance.  Topical products can take up to a year to see a difference.  The KeryFlexTM Nail Restoration System, while not a treatment, can be used as a cosmetic adjunct with pharmaceutical agents designed to eradicate the fungus.

The interval between applications will vary according to the patient, but in general, the time between applications is eight to twelve weeks. If the patient wants to have the nail removed, the podiatrist can file away the artificial nail until it is no longer attached to the natural nail.  Rarely, a KeryFlexTM nail may detach from the natural nail. 

So, if you’re tired of looking down on your toenails, or want to make sure your toes are ready for sandals - check with Dr. Jennifer Gross, she might be able to help you with KeryFlexTM.  Dr. Jennifer Gross-Edwards has her private practice, Advanced Foot Care, P.C., located at 940 N. New Street, Bethlehem.  You can call 484-895-3777 to schedule your visit.
