Onyfix is a nail bracing system available at Undefeeted Podiatry for the treatment and management of ingrown and involuted toenails. The Onyfix nail brace is applied to the nail base, and hardened with an LED blue light. The Onyfix will encourage the toenail to grow back to its natural shape, reducing pain levels in the nail sulci. The application process is pain free and can provide rapid relief once applied. Onyfix is also safe for patients with diabetes and can be used whilst participating in water based activities such as swimming. No local anesthetic is required unlike toenail removal procedures.
