Feeling stuck between trying to paint your nails to disguise their appearance or hiding them inside closed-in shoes and socks year-round?
You’re not alone. Conditions like fungal nail infections that degrade the appearance of our nails aren’t just frustrating or embarrassing, they’re also shown to be physically and psychologically distressing to those affected. This is where Keryflex, performed by our Brisbane podiatrists, instantly restores confidence and satisfaction when wearing open-toed shoes or walking in bare feet by painlessly transforming the appearance of damaged, discoloured or infected toenails in a single appointment.
Keryflex is a safe and effective cosmetic nail restoration service that creates a new flexible, breathable and natural-looking nail over your existing damaged nail. Keryflex nails look and feel natural, while maintaining a healthy environment for the original nail to grow out beneath.
We use Keryflex extensively on both men and women who are unsatisfied with the appearance of their toenails and want them to look healthy and thriving. Often, this is to help nails that are:
The breathable and intuitive nature of Keryflex means that it’s also a perfect adjunct for those undergoing our PACT antifungal treatment, creating a natural and healthy-looking nail after the treatment sessions are complete while the new nail grows out beneath without restrictions or compromise.
Keryflex restores the appearance of damaged nails by creating a new nail made of a safe, patented resin that is exclusively available to podiatrists. We use a three-step procedure to create the new nail in one appointment. This involves:
The Keryflex nail does not damage or have any unwanted effects on your existing nail, which is free to continue to grow healthy and strong beneath. For many of our patients, this means that by the time they finish with the Keryflex system and the Keryflex nail is removed, they are left with their original nail in a better condition and with a better appearance that they are happy to show to the world.
Our patients love the ease and convenience of the Keryflex system, alongside its many benefits including:
Acrylic nails are best known as the fake nails that are applied in a nail salon. While they improve the appearance of the nails, they come at a cost:

Keryflex is a specialised treatment only available to podiatrists. Before being able to use the Keryflex system, podiatrists must undergo
additional training to ensure quality and consistency with each Keryflex nail application, giving you the very best results. As such, it is
not available for purchase by the general public.
You don’t need a referral to have Keryflex. Book your appointment with us either online
or by calling us on 1300 993 338. We’ll first assess your suitability for the service, which involves having at least
15% of your original nail still attached to bond to the new Keryflex nail and being deemed suitable based on your existing medical
conditions and circumstances (see our FAQs).
Your appointment starts by reviewing your nails, discussing your concerns and all of your options, and confirming that Keryflex is right for you. After this, we prepare your nail, trimming and filing it down to create the best surface to work with while promoting healthy new nail growth. Then the bonding agent, resin and sealant are applied. Appointment times are typically 20 to 30 minutes, depending on how many toenails are being restored.
