Callus

Nail Trimming

Un-trimmed nails can cause discomfort and in-growing nails and contribute to the spread of infection to nails and surrounding skin.

Cracked Heels

A callus is incapable of bending and stretching like normal skin so can cause the skin on the heel to crack.

Fungal & Thickened Nails

Fungal nail infections are highly contagious. Usually the nail will appear discoloured, thick, crumbly, brittle and flaky. They are treated by anti-fungal products .

Ingrowing Toe Nails

The nail is forced into the soft areas of the skin causing pain and possibly infection. The most common cause of ingrown toe nails is incorrect toe nail cutting

Verrucas

Verrucas are warts caused by a viral infection and our body’s immune system heals them naturally. A painful verucca can be treated to help releive pressure.

Athlete's Foot

Athlete’s foot is an itchy affliction caused by a fungus. It normally starts between the toes and can be extremely uncomfortable. It can spread to the nails if left untreated. .

Toe Nail Reconstruction

Many men and women suffer fom unsightly toe nails and are embarrassed by their feet. In order to hide them from friends and family they often wear a full shoe, socks or paint over the damage to disguise it, often making it worse in the process. These types of nail may be fungal, misshapen or permanently damaged.

LCN Wilde-Pedique is a gel Nail Reconstruction system designed specifically for toenails. It adapts to the movements of the toe due to its extreme elasticity. The gel sets when exposed to ultraviolet light. It’s unique adhesive properties mean that good results can be achieved, even on calloused layers of skin where a toenail may be missing. The gel resin has the ability to add strength and harden with a glossy finish.

The Wilde Pedique gel once applied and cured will essentially look like and cut like a regular toe nail. It is an ideal solution for those clients who are looking for a cosmetically pleasing look and at the same helping stopping the snagging of the nail and possible infection. The nail can be filed and painted as normal. If the varnish is taken off with nail varnish remover the nail is not stained and returns to its natural appearance.

There is no discolouration: After approximately 2 minutes under a UVA light the material is completely set and will not alter. It will not damage the natural nail or hinder natural nail growth. The gel is not porous so neither moisture or air can penetrate and therefore fungal nails can be covered with the gels helping prevention of further spread or development of infection. With cracked or split nails LCN gels helps further damage by covering the crack/split, preventing further snagging
