Often toenails can become unsightly. This could be due to a fungal infection or from trauma to the nail. At BFC we offer a service to restore nails to a natural look, avoiding embarrassment when your nails are on display! LCN Wilde-Pedique Plus is a unique, light cured system which offers painless reconstructive nail correction for damaged and infected nails, providing a natural and attractive cosmetic result. Socks and shoes can be worn immediately after treatment and this is therefore ideal for holidays and parties.
This is an extremely elastic UV gel which sets when exposed to UVA light. LCN Wilde-Pedique Plus was developed specifically for corrective and restorative toenail treatments. The gel resin has the ability to bond to a surface, add strength and harden with a glossy finish, whilst at the same time adapting to the movements of the toe due to its flexibility. The Wilde-Pedique gel, once applied and cured, will essentially look and cut like a regular toenail. This is an ideal solution for those clients who are looking for a cosmetically pleasing look and at the same helps stop the snagging of the nail and possible infection. This typically requires refilling every 4-6 weeks until the toenail is fully grown.
Normally around 3 months, the gel nail gradually grows out and a gap appears at the base of the nail that can be filled in. If there is only a small amount of nail to attach the gel nail to then the gel nail might come off sooner.
No, the gel is cured with UVA light and you will not feel anything. This is a similar treatment to having gels for fingernails.
Yes, the nail can be painted as normal. If the varnish is taken off with nail varnish remover the nail is not stained and returns to its natural appearance.
No, with LCN there is:
No discolouration: Once the gel has been under a UVA light for approximately 2 minutes, the material is completely set and will not alter.
No primer/chemical activator: LCN gels do not use aggressive acidic primers which can damage the natural nail plate.
No damage to the natural nail: As the gel cures to a flexible surface it will not damage or hinder natural nail growth.
Non-porous: Neither moisture or air can penetrate the gel and therefore fungal nails can be covered with the gels helping prevention of further spread or development of infection.
