How Does KeryFlex Work?

The Nail bed is prepared, with debridement of the nail. Keryflex Bond is brushed onto the nail plate and nail bed. KeryflexResin builds up the nail and allows sculpting and contouring of the nail. Keryflex Seal is applied after the modeling process is completed. Ultraviolet light hardens the substances within 2 minutes
