Wilde-Pedique (also called LCN, which stands for light cured nails) is known world wide and has been used for cosmetic reconstruction of nails for over 20 years. This treatment achieves a pleasing result when used on nails which have been partially removed due to surgery, trauma, or fungal infections as the special resin can be applied directly to the nail bed.
This is a Medical Cosmetic procedure.
It's an extremely elastic UV gel (one component Acrylester resin) which when exposed to UV-A light sets. LCN Wilde Pedique was developed specifically for corrective and restorative toe nail treatments. The gel resin has the ability to bond to a surface, add strength and harden with a glossy finish, whilst at the same time adapting to the movements of the toe due to its flexibility. The results can be achieved even on callus layers of skin- very suitable where a toenail is damaged or in cases where the nail has been surgically removed and there is an unsightly growth, thus effective on scaly nail surfaces as it can congeal ridges and deformations and hide discolouration (in the case of fungal nails). The Wilde Pedique gel once applied and curded will essentially lookl ike 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. It may need redoing every 4-6 weeks until the nail is fully grown.
Fungal Nails- This treatment can be used for fungal nails in conjunction with either topical or oral anti-fungal treatments. 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 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. The treatment will not work when the nail bed has been removed as it needs a portion of nail to adhere to.
Cracked/ Split Nails- LCN gels help further damage by covering the crack/ split, preventing further snagging.
