Onyfix is a nonsurgical treatment option for involuted and ingrown toenails. It is an innovative nail correction system that provides painless treatment of almost all forms of involuted and ingrown toenails.
The system is versatile, allowing your foot care expert to adapt the system individually and affix it to your nail. Onyfix uses a hardened composite to help ingrown or involuted toenails grow back to their natural shape through normal growth without any tension or pain.
An involuted toenail has a very pronounced curve, such that the edge of the nail cuts sharply into the skin on the side of your toe. The continuous pressure from the nail biting into the skin can be painful and cause the skin around the nail to get hard and form calluses or corns if the pressure continues. Redness may be present around the nail as well.
Ingrown toenails curve and grow into the nail borders (the sides of the nail). They often irritate the skin, creating pain, redness, swelling, and warmth in the toes.
Any break in the skin due to ingrown toenails may become a hotbed for bacteria and result in an infection. Infection is often marked by drainage and a foul odor.
The most common cause of ingrown toenails is cutting your nails too short, which encourages the skin next to the nail to fold over the nail.
