Toenail Reconstruction

The LCN (Iight cured nail), Wilde-Pedique gel, once applied and cured, will essentially look and cut like a regular toenail. This is an extremely elastic UV gel which sets when exposed to UVA light. This was developed specifically for corrective and restorative toenail treatments. The gel resin has the ability to bond to a surface, add strength and harden with a glossy finish. At the same time, it adapts to the movements of the toe due to its flexibility.

This is an ideal solution for clients who are looking for a cosmetically pleasing look and at the same time something that helps stop the snagging of the nail and possible infection. Usually, this requires refilling every four to six weeks until the toenail is fully grown.

Once applied, the prosthetic nail can be treated like any normal toenail: it may be cut and painted, and it will even allow you to use products such as UV gels. The prosthetic nail will not dissolve with acetone, and it has to be removed professionally after six to eight weeks or an infill should be done where the nail has grown at the nail base.

Who Is the Treatment For?

  • Fungal: This treatment can be used in conjunction with fungal nail treatment either in the form of topical or oral anti-fungal treatment. It should help in limiting the spread of any fungal infection. Additionally, it can also boost one’s confidence in showing off their feet.
  • Nails Damaged by Trauma: A prosthetic nail can help the new nail grow into place along the nail bed. This minimises the risk of an ingrown nail.
  • Cracked or Split Nails: This helps in stopping them from further splitting or damage.

Other Properties

  • No Odour
  • No Discolouration
  • No Primer/Chemical Activator: LCN gels have no acidic primers which can damage the natural nail plate.
  • Non-Porous: Moisture and air cannot penetrate the material. Fungal nails can be covered with the gel to help the prevention of further spread or development of the infection.

Toenail reconstruction takes approximately 20 minutes and can be carried out after a routine treatment or as a stand-alone treatment. We charge from £15 per big toenail (if added onto a routine Podiatry / Chiropody treatment). The cost variation is dependent on the level of work that needs to be carried prior to the prosthetic nail being applied.

Diabetic Assessment

We will assess the lower limbs regarding their neurological and vascular status. During the assessment, we look for any changes in status, assessing touch, vibration, cold and pain sensations. Afterwards, we will advise on offloading pressure on certain areas to avoid ulceration and amputation.

This is the removal of part (PNA) or full (TNA) toenails under local anaesthetic with phenolisation (cauterisation of the nail bed to prevent re-growth). The price includes initial dressings, aftercare pack and advice and the first follow-up appointment.

Before any nail surgery can be undertaken, a full assessment will be carried out and the necessary consent form signed, thereafter a mutually convenient date and time for the surgery will be arranged.

Therapy Room Treatments

LFW Podiatry / Chiropody & Wellness Clinic in Burley in Wharfedale, West Yorkshire also offers other treatments such as reflexology and clinical hypnotherapy.


Joy Kelly, ITEC, VTCT, Reflexologist/Massage Therapist/Reiki Practitioner

Joy has been practising for six years in the West Yorkshire area as a mobile therapist and in clinic settings. Reflexology is a holistic therapy, which means it works on the principle that the whole body is treated in order to encourage its own healing systems. It treats the patient on a physical and emotional level and helps establish balance and harmony (homeostatis) in the body.


During treatment, you will remain fully clothed while sitting or reclining on a couch with socks off so we can work on your feet and ankles. We will start with a foot massage and during the session, we will use a variety of reflexology techniques, with an emphasis on working on the parts of the feet appropriate to areas discussed during the consultation. The session ends with more foot massage.

We are pleased to say that complementary therapies are now being accepted by medical professionals worldwide. Some of them prescribe reflexology treatment along with more conventional treatments to encourage the recovery process. We feel that the addition of reflexology to our podiatry treatments will help enhance your overall treatment experience in the clinic.

Initial appointments will usually take approximately one hour and 15 minutes when Joy will complete a consultation form together with you and have a chat about any particular issues you would like to address. Subsequent treatments will normally be 45 minutes to an hour.

The cost for reflexology is £40 and is made direct to Joy Kelly by cash / cheque. Treatments are available on Wednesday afternoons and evenings and on Fridays. To book an appointment, please call 07963 637309 or book online or within the clinic. Joy is available on Wednesday afternoon, alternative Thursday mornings or all day Friday and Saturday by arrangement.
