Toenail Reconstruction

Wilde Pedique toenail reconstruction is a cosmetic improvement to damaged and unsightly toenails. It could also be described as a prosthetic nail replacement or gel nail.

The wilde pedique gel is designed for toenails, it is an acrylester rather than an acrylic which is bonded to the permanently exposed nail until it grows out. Most patients get between 6 and 8 weeks with the false nail, some may last longer depending on the quality of the natural nail underneaith.

The pedique nail is nontoxic, nonabsorbent, slightly flexible (so it is less likely to break in shoes) and shaped to fit your nail so won’t pop off like a false nail. This is in contrast to acrylics that are usually bonded to the nails in beauty salons which can be too brittle or damage the nail or can lift the skin underneath. They can also allow moisture between the layers of nail causing possibilities of a fungal infection, this is minimised by the silver properties in the wilde pedique.

This treatment can be applied to any nail condition provided there is a nail to attach to – loosely attached or lifted nails, damaged nails and thick or fungal nails that don’t grow fully or are deformed are transformed with the pedique nail replacement. 

The treatment takes around 30 minutes and can be applied to any nail, colourful gel polish can be applied thereafter and your nails can be ready for the summer!
