Peterborough Podiatry uses Wilde-Pedique

Wilde-Pedique is a light cured gel. It can be used for toe nail correction and prosthesis. The UV-light, has been used for dental infillings for years, and doesn’t cause melanoma. Also, chiropodists can use a drill to reduce thickened nails, beauty therapists can’.t

The Wilde-Pedique’s system is a one component, light cured, Acrylester resin developed specifically for corrective and restorative toenail treatments. It has hypoallergenic characteristics with no specific contra-indications to its usage, along with durability and a high quality finish that does not discolour.

Wilde-Pedique is an effective treatment for clients who have nails damaged by trauma, thickening of the nails (Onychauuxis), corns under the nail plate (Subungal) and for those who may have an infected nail matrix (fungal) and who may be taking, orally, a systemic fungicide to deal with any internal infection.

The overlay is also effective with scaly surfaces, in-growing toenails, ridges, deformations, masking discoloration and for protecting newly growing toenails. The resin, which is an elastic gel, adjusts to the movements of the nails and feet and will protect the bone beneath the nail plate area by acting as a scaffolding and shock absorber. The resin is especially ideal for important occasions like weddings and parties where a nail can be applied as a temporary measure to skin if the whole nail has been lost.
