pedique cosmetic toenail replacement

The Pedique toenail replacement is a cosmetic improvement to damaged and unsightly toenails. It could also be knows as a prosthetic nail replacement or gel nail. The specially designed gel is specifically for use on toe nails and is bonded permanently to the exposed nail where it usually remains until it grows out. This can last from between 2 months and a year in some cases.

The pedique nail is non-toxic, non-absorbent, slightly flexible (so it is less likely to crack in shoes) and shaped to fit your nail. This is in contrast to the nail wraps or acrylics that are glued or bonded to the nails in salons which can be too brittle or damage the nail with strong glue. They can also allow moisture between the layers of nail causing damage.

This treatment can beapplied to any nail condition- loosely attached or lifted nails, damaged nails that don’t grow fully and deformed nails are transformed with the pedique nail replacement. The prosthetic needs some nail to attach to though and if the existing nail is too loose then the replacement moulded gel won’t be secure.Ros Morris 2015-04-15 L1 PEDIQUE2015-03-27 Jackie Whalen R03117 NEW PEDIQUE L12015-03-20 Sylvia Diosi R57890 Left pediqueFirst appointment after pedique (no nail varnish)

Fungal InfectedToenails: Pedique will instantaneously improve the look of the nail, and will help keep the infection at bay. It will also stop any tenderness by being a protective cover. We would usually thin and remove as much fungal debris before applying the nail. The pedique gel nail has anti-fungal properties and the treatment can be combined with the PinPointe FootLaser.

Traumatised Toenails:  Pedique will instantaneously improve the look of nails that have been damaged by being stubbed/bruised while playing a sport, wearing tight shoes or just simply being trodden on. It will also stop any tenderness by being a protective cover. Temporary damage for example after running the marathon, tight shoes or stubbing can be rectified whilst the new nail grows underneath.

The technique takes from half an hour and the result is immediate and can be treated as a normal nail and varnished.
