How can you fix an ingrowing toenail without surgery? At Darwin Podiatry, you can!

Is there a painless way to stop a nail from curling into your skin? At Darwin Podiatry, there is!

Onyfix is a painless nail correction system used by certified professionals to treat ingrowing or involuted toenails. The principle of the Onyfix nail correction system is to bring an involuted or ingrown nail back into a natural shape through normal growth without any tension or pain. Application, usage, and removal is completely painless.

Benefits of Onyfix:

  • Pain-free treatment
  • Rapid pain alleviation
  • Corrects the nail through physiological nail growth
  • Effective without exerting force on the nail
  • Combinable and individually adaptable system
  • Effectiveness confirmed by a study
  • No restrictions on patient activities (incl. swimming/sauna)
  • Nail polish can still be used

How is it applied?

Your podiatrist will gently file the surface of the affected nail with a burr, and then apply a priming agent to the nail. This is cured under a LED blue light.

Onyfix composite is then applied to the nail and shaped into a discrete brace that is cured under the LED light. This composite brace remains in place on the nail as the nail grows out. When required, your Podiatrist will remove the brace painlessly using a burr. Check out the video below to see the process.
