What the Doc Prescribes

Specializing in nail damage, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Chris G. Adigun provides nutrient requirements needed to revive and strengthen clients’ nails:  Hydration, conditioning and surface restoration.

 

Hydration

Incorporate a gentle exfoliative acid (AHAs) into your clients’ nail treatment such as glycolic acid to facilitate penetration of nourishing emollients and conditioning peptides.

Condition

Emollients seal in moisture and bolster the desiccated nail’s resilience, while keratin peptides support the nail plate’s structure and improve strength. Keep in mind, applying conditioning emollients to the surrounding nail tissue is also important for nail health.

Resurface

Expedite’s unique top coat formula contains conditioning oils sunflower and celery seed, as well as nourishing peptides that restore nails’ strength and resilience.
