Fingernail Fungus

Fingernail fungus

What causes nail fungus?

Fingernail fungus, also knows as onychomycosis, is pretty common in the feet but can occur in the fingernails as well. For the most part its harmless but it does change the appearance of the nail.

They begin to look unsightly and not very esthetically pleasing. The fungus can cause the nail to become really thick yet brittle, and separated from the nail bed. At this point you see major discolouration ranging from yellow to black.

Fingernail fungus can also affect the future growth of the nail. If the area was traumatized enough, the nail may not grow back normally afterwards even once the fungus is gone.

Most commonly people get nail infections because they get exposed to the fungus after some type of injury, such as cutting the nail improperly or having a tool shoved underneath the nail. In addition, certain illnesses like diabetes can cause a person to be more prone to fungal infections.


An anti-fungal treatment where your nail is trimmed down and treated will help remove the fungus. You should receive an anti-fungal agent that you apply post treatment.

Post care

bruised nail trauma

Anti-fungal drops. Also, it is important to wash your hands and keep your nails clean underneath and short if possible. Try not share nail clippers or if you’re going for services at a spa just make sure the equipment and tools are clean and disinfected. Nail files should not be shared.

Brittle Nails Treatment

brittle nails treatment

What is it?

Brittle nails sensitivity got you looking for treatment? Brittle nails are very thin nails that split, crack, and peel easily. Although it could be hereditary, there are other things that can cause brittle nails. Examples include dryness caused by certain soaps or detergents, a lack of moisture around the nails, aging, iron deficiency, other health conditions.

It is important that you get checked by a doctor if you see other changes in your health along with the brittle nails.

Brittle Nails Treatment

Our Classic Manicure is a great treatment not only because of the massage and paraffin application, but also the use of vitamin e lotion and cuticle oil nourishes the hands and nails with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Plus, the polish application helps to build strength.

Nail strengtheners can be used at home.

Have you heard of nail strengtheners or hardeners? They are useful as well and can be used at home or applied during your manicure.

Manicure abstinence?

Brittle nails can also be a result of bad manicures or bad nails jobs. Over-filing when applying or removing is a common cause of brittle nails. In addition, ripping off unwanted gel or acrylic nails will contribute to brittle nails.

If this is the case, you just have to wait until the nails rebuild strength! We recommend no more nail applications until the nails have restored themselves enough.

Nail Ridges Cause

nail ridges cause

What is it?

The cause of nail ridges can be many. Nail ridges are small lines running vertically on the nail. They can be deeper, with depressions or grooves on the nail, or slight bumps that typically run vertically. They can be caused by many reasons but most commonly are caused by age. However, they could also be due to improper nail care or injury. They can also be caused by certain illnesses. So, it important to have it checked out by your physician it if its getting worse and you are not an older person.

dermica hand and nail care

An additional cause of nail ridges could be due to a mineral/vitamin deficiency. Pay attention to changes in colour, severity, and deepness of the grooves. Also, watch for any inflammation around the root of the nail, or changes in the skin around the nail.


During a manicure, we buff out the top of the surface of the nail making it as smooth as possible. After, we apply a nice base coat with a gel polish application to give it strength if it has become brittle.

After care: hand lotion. No buffing at home if you get regular manicures.

Nail Biting Treatment

What is it?

What is it and is there a nail biting treatment? Nail biting is also known as onychophagy. It is caused by a nervous, compulsive habit of biting your fingernails due to anxiety.

Home tips

Have you tried bitters on your fingernails? Bitters are like a nail polish that tastes horrible so it prevents you from wanting to put your fingers in your mouth.

nail biting treatment dermica

Some clients have shared with us that having polish or gel polish helps them leave their fingers alone because they look nice.

When painting your nails at home, use polish with a nail strengthening base coat.


Manicures help maximize a nail’s growth potential (assuming the client is ready to cease the nail biting). They achieve this through professional nail and cuticle work. A paraffin dip softens the damaged skin surrounding the nail.

Your nails will need to be strengthen up in order to grow past the tip of the finger. Nail hardeners do a really good job in strengthening your nails.

Post care

Use a nail brush as often as possible. We recommend daily hand lotion use, multiple times a day.
