LCN Wilde-Pedique Nail Reconstruction

Market Street Clinic has re-opened again for LCN Wilde-Pedique Toe Nail Reconstruction. During the pandemic we remained open throughout for medical procedures and paused all non essential cosmetic treatments.

Aesthetic toenail reconstruction is becoming a particularly popular cosmetic podiatry treatment. We can create a prosthetic nail for those who have lost part or most of a toenail.

LCN Wilde-Pedique Toe Nail Reconstruction is a simple and painless procedure that replaces damaged toenails.

This may be due to injury, or nails which have crumbled away due to an extensive fungal infection or trauma. Wilde-Pedique is a highly effective toenail correction system comprising of an extremely elastic UV nail gel that adapts to the movements of the toe. The elastic gel adjusts to the movements of the nails and feet. Thus the artificial nail feels completely natural, since it fits perfectly onto the natural nail restoring the toe nail and providing an attractive cosmetic result improving the overall appearance of your feet. Nail reconstruction can benefit if you are affected by fungal nails, unsightly, discoloured, deformed, totally or partially missing nails. It can conceal ridges and deformations and hide discolouration. This makes it ideal for camouflaging fungal nails by evening out the shape and colour of a diseased nail. The gel is antifungal so helps prevents against further damage to the nail while it is worn.

LCN Wilde-Pedique

LCN Wilde-Pedique is not to be confused with an acrylic nail, instead it is designed to look and feel exactly the same as a natural nail. This service is particularly popular throughout the Spring and Summer when you may wish to bare your feet in open toed sandals or walk barefoot on that lovely beach on holiday.

The nail will essentially look and cut just as a regular toe nail and no-one should be any wiser that the nail is not real.

At Market Street Clinic, toenail reconstruction is completed by a fully qualified and insured professional, using specialist resins.

This fungal-resistant resin is layered directly onto the nail bed. This creates a new nail placed on top of existing or damaged nails. The treatment can be combined with anti-fungal Laser Therapy, to cure the fungal nail infection at the same time. Topical anti-fungal preparations may continue to be used with the reconstructed nails. This will not damage the natural nail as it regrows. The gel has antifungal properties, meaning that any nails which have a fungal infection will be treated. The nail that is reconstructed will not damage the natural nail or restrict growth. This means that the natural nail is able to grow un affected.

The treatment is suitable for both men and woman as there is a choice of a natural matt or a glossy French Polish finish. It has been developed specifically for correcting and restoring missing or damaged toe nails.

The gel is also available in a variety of colours to match in with most natural nail shades and if desired your other nails can be given an overlay to create a matching cosmetic finish.

The results can be very long lasting but Nail reconstruction isn’t a permanent solution. The length of time that the nail reconstruction lasts will vary from person to person. At some point you may have to return to have the nail removed and another one applied. We find once you’ve had it done once you will be so pleased with the result you won’t be without it.

A reconstructed toenail may be treated in exactly the same way as you would treat a normal nail, this means that if you wish to you can apply nail varnish and use a nail varnish remover.
