The doctor will first trim and file down the damaged nail. This is performed with a nail clipper and electric file. Once the nail is prepared, we will begin the process of restoring the appearance of the nail by applying a honey-like resin. The material cured, or hardened with the use of an ultraviolet light. The doctor will then mold, shape and smooth the nail. Lastly, a sealant topcoat will be applied followed by a second curing process.
