As a sufferer of an ingrown toenail, I looked for a non-surgical treatment besides surgery for my toe. When I became a certified master pedicurist, I learned and was trained in a brace system to correct this issue. I did not have luck with the brace system. I learned about Onyfix at a pedicure conference in 2018. The system was not available in the US at the time. I waited....
June 2020, the system be came available and I became certified in the system. I have several clients wearing the Onyfix brace, including myself. My clients are telling me they feel relief.
Onyfix toe nail correction system is the newest technology used to treat ingrown and involuted toenail to its correct position.
The moldable resin is applied to the ingrown toenail, which is molded into the desired form. And it will be cured onto the toenail for about 2-3 months. When the toenail grows, the Onyfix will grow with the toenail and helps the toenail grow in the correct position. This can be applied few times to the deformed toenail until the desired result is obtained. Please watch the video below for more details.
