Nail Care

Nail Care

Nails can be problematic to cut, especially if they are thick, unusually shaped, or hard to reach. At Talaria our podiatrists provide the finest nail care at regular intervals to maintain exquisite foot health, preventing pain or any further complications. With our modern equipment and professionally sterilized instruments your safety and health is our primary concern.

Ingrown Nails

Ingrown toenails are a common condition where the nail either pushes or grows into the edge of the skin. This can lead to pain, swelling, and sometimes if left, an infection. When treated swiftly and effectively discomfort can be prevented and everything resolved without a problem. This may be as simple as cutting the nail with a specific technique or removing any built up corns or callus in the edge. If the nail is a re-occurring problem, the surgically trained podiatrists at Talaria can perform a simple and non invasive procedure to remove the offending nail spike and prevent it from growing back, while maintaining the cosmetic appearance of the nail.

Fungal infections

Fungal infections are caused by “dermatophytes”, a group of fungi that invades and grows in skin or nails. When the skin is affected (tinea pedis) it can be red, flaky, itchy or blistered. Nails (Onychomycosis) become discoloured, thickened, yellow and brittle. Our Podiatrists are able to diagnose these conditions, provide education and thorough treatment solutions to resolve any issues and prevent re-occurrence.

KeryFlex

Fungal nails can take many months to resolve and grow to be aesthetically pleasing, therefore at Talaria we offer KeryFlex, a nail restoration system. KeryFlex is exclusive to podiatrists and provides the appearance of a healthy, smooth, and durable nail. Our podiatrists are trained to apply the treatment to remodel and restore the appearance of a healthy and natural nail, usually lasting six weeks or more.
