Wilde-Pedique is an extremely strong, elastic gel which sets when exposed to UV-A light. It was developed specifically for correcting and restoring missing or damaged toe nails.
The gel resin has the ability to bond to any surface, add strength and harden with a glossy, but elastic finish – very suitable where a toenail is deformed or where a nail has been surgically removed. It is very effective on scaly nail surfaces as it can conceal ridges and deformations and hide discolouration.
The Wilde Pedique gel once applied and cured will essentially look similar to, 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 to stop the nail snagging and possible infection. It may need refilling every 4/6 weeks until the nail is grown fully. Some existing nail is needed to attach to, otherwise the nail will come off within a few days as the skin cells it is attached to slough off. The picture at the bottom of the page shows a nail attached to a toe with a very small amount of natural nail. The client was going to a wedding two days later and was just happy to have it for that short time. The nail can be glued back on with nail glue to make it last a little longer.
The WILDE-PEDIQUE treatment is recommended for:
- Fungal Nails – This treatment can be used in conjunction with fungal nail treatment either in the form of topical or oral anti-fungal treatment. Although Wilde-Pedique is not a cure in itself, it should help in limiting the spread of the fungal infection, and it will certainly go along way in boosting your confidence in being able to show off your feet.
- Nails damaged by trauma or removed surgically – A prosthetic nail may help the new nail grow into place along the nail bed thereby minimising risk of an ingrown nail or, in cases of surgery, constructing a completely new nail on the nail bed. (Some real nail is needed.)
- Cracked/split nails – Wilde-Pedique helps further damage by covering the crack/split, preventing further snagging.
No Odour, no Discolouration – Once Wilde-Pedique gel has been cured for about two minutes under a UV-A light, the material is completely cured and will not change.
No Primer/Chemical Activator – Our gels use no aggressive acidic primers which damage the natural nail plate.
No Damage to the Natural Nail – As the gel cures to a flexible surface, it will not damage or hinder the natural nail growth.
Non Porous – Neither moisture or air can penetrate the material and so fungal nails can be covered with the gel helping prevention of further spread or development of the infection.
Natural Acting -Once a Wilde-Pedique nail has been applied it can be treated the same way as a natural toenail, meaning it can be filed and varnished using standard or gel nail polish, which can also be removed in the normal way without damage to your new nail.
After care is mostly common sense as any trauma to the nail or excess pressure may damage the Gel Nail in the same way as it would damage a natural nail.
