What is Nail Restoration?
Nail restoration is a procedure that can be used to repair damaged nails. It involves the use of artificial acrylic extensions or natural looking nail polish colors, which are applied over the damaged area. The purpose of this article is to discuss what nail restoration is, how it works and its benefits.
Common Causes of Damaged Nails
- Injuries, such as a cut or break in the nail plate
- Infections, such as bacterial or fungal infections
- Fungal infections (onychomycosis) are the most common cause of damaged nails. They can be either superficial or deep and are often caused by Candida albicans (a yeast), dermatophytes (fungi that grow on skin), tinea pedis and tinea unguium (ringworm).
- Psoriasis and eczema can also damage your nails if you have itchy skin which causes you to pick at your nails, resulting in scabbing or thickening of the nail bed.
Types of Nail Restoration Treatments
There are several different types of nail restoration treatments.
- Nail wraps: These are thin strips of plastic that can be applied to your nails in order to cover up damage or discoloration. They’re often used as an alternative to polish and nail art, since they provide a more natural look than either one.
- Nail polish and nail art: If you want to change the color of your nails but still keep them looking natural, try applying some new shades of polish on top of them! You can also use this method if you want something more exciting than just plain white or clear polish–there are tons of great colors available at drugstores these days! Or maybe even add some glitter? The possibilities are endless!
- Nail tips: These small pieces attach directly onto each individual finger tip (or toe tip) so that they blend seamlessly into the rest of the digit’s shape while still providing protection from dirt getting inside cracks between toes/fingers where bacteria thrive best during summertime activities like swimming pools or camping trips away from home base camp sites where no showers exist nearby…
How to Choose the Right Nail Restoration Treatment
Choosing the right nail restoration treatment is a process that begins with understanding your needs and priorities. The severity of your damaged nails will be one factor in determining which treatment is best for you, but it’s not the only one. You’ll also want to consider how much time and money you want to spend on this project, as well as what kind of lifestyle changes would be necessary if you opt for more invasive procedures like surgery or laser therapy.
Here are some questions to ask yourself:
- How severe are my damaged nails?
- Is there significant damage at the cuticle line?
- Do I have thinning at the tips of my fingers?
- Am I experiencing pain when gripping things with my hands (like opening jars)? If so, then these issues may require more intensive care than simply filing down chipped polish every few weeks–they may indicate an underlying condition that requires medical attention from a doctor before any cosmetic treatments can be considered successful.*
- What type of work do I do day-to-day; am I mostly sitting behind a desk all day long or am I constantly lifting heavy boxes off trucks at work sites? If so then perhaps getting acrylics done every few weeks isn’t going to cut it because those chemicals could cause further damage over time.*
- Do I have enough free time each week/month/year where I could schedule regular appointments with technicians who specialize in this type of service without disrupting other commitments like family obligations or social gatherings?
