Podology (podiatry) (from Greek "podos" - foot, "logos" - teaching) is the science of the foot, which studies diseases of the toenails, skin of the feet, and hyperfunctions of the sweat glands. Podologists in Kyiv pay special attention to the prevention and treatment of pathologies of the foot, and ingrown toenail correction. These problems are considered as aesthetic, but they require not just care, but complete treatment. Podology is a kind of fusion of medicine and cosmetology. Most often, people turn to the podiatrist with such phenomena as ingrown toenails, corns, warts, cracks, "diabetic foot", fungal diseases, and various deformities of the toenail plate. The condition of the human foot is often associated with diseases of the internal organs. The task of the doctor is not only to detect pathological changes on the skin of the feet and on the toenails, but also in time to diagnose functional disorders in the body that affect the condition of the feet. Also, podiatrist performs pedicure, which will give a beautiful and tidy look of your feet.

Ingrown toenail (onychocryptosis) is one of the most common problems associated with the health of the feet. The toenail plate can grow into surrounding tissues as a result of wearing tight shoes, improper pedicure, flat feet, and injuries. When the toenail ingrows, the risk of infection of the affected area increases, severe pain occurs, the under nail may bleed. You should not try to solve this problem at home. Independent attempts can only aggravate the situation. You need professional help. Podiatrist in Kyiv will help to quickly and painlessly eliminate the ingrowth toenail with the help of a specially selected brace.

Braces (ingrown toenail treatment)

Brace is a modern way to correct ingrown toenails, a painless and effective procedure, and an excellent alternative to surgical intervention. In "Люменис" the most effective braces are used, which completely eliminates this problem.

The use of braces has the following advantages:

  • Inflammation is eliminated, pain and swelling disappears
  • Over time, correction of the correct toenail shape is carried out

The essence of the technique is to fix the brace on the toenail plate, lifting the toenail. Thus, the pressure of the ingrown toenail is reduced and the inflammatory process is eliminated. Braces are made of stainless medical steel; the installation procedure is absolutely painless. This procedure is an excellent alternative to the constant discomfort and pain caused by ingrown toenails.

In Lumenis a qualified podiatrist can offer you 3 types of braces:

ingrown nail bracket

Brace "Omega"

It represents a wire in the form of the letter “Omega”, with two "shoulders" and hooks. The brace is selected individually, depending on the thickness of the toenail. The central bend of the brace allows you to adjust its tension naturally. As the nail grows, 1–2 brace correction may to be needed (without removing).

Brace 3 ТО

It’s the most effective method for ingrown toenail correction. Installing this brace gives positive results even in the most difficult cases and is held on the nails with any deformation. Brace 3 TO consists of three components - two braces and fastener clamping. Podiatrist corrects the brace as the nail grows, moving it to the growth zone of the toenail plate. Brace 3 TO is hypoallergenic, after its use almost no relapses occur.

Brace Titanium thread

It refers to the latest generation technology and represents a wire from an alloy of the titan and nickel. This alloy has a special strength and elasticity, hypoallergenic, does not corrode, but most importantly - has a shape memory. After installation on the toenail, the titanium thread “tries” to take on its former shape, thereby delaying the edges of the toenail. Thus, inflammation and pain are eliminated; the correct shape of the toenail is formed. Another advantage of such braces - it can be put on small, baby toenails, without age restrictions.

Corns classification:

  • Hard corn
  • Soft corn
  • Callus
  • Neurovascular callus
  • Neurofibrous callus
  • Corn with white spots (milaris)
  • Papillary corn
  • Subungual callus
  • Corn with root

When corns are formed, first of all, comfortable, correct shoes should be selected; it is possible to use linings (made of soft fabric) under the area of corns. Under clinic conditions, the corn is removed using a keratolytic softener and a blade. After manipulations, it is recommended to use protectors - special ointments and creams from the “Keratosis” series.

A very common problem is corneal callosity, which occurs due to the pressure of the toenail on the soft tissue. A hard stratum corneum is formed under the nail plate or under the lateral edges of the toenail. Attempts to remove the corn from under the nail on one's own lead to a greater growth of the corn. Not a pedicure master, but a podiatrist, would competently remove a callus, if necessary, lay down a tampon with a medicine and give recommendations for further foot care.


Nail fungus (onychomycosis) can be caused yeast-like fungi, dermatophytes, and sometimes mold fungi. To avoid infection, you must use rubber slippers in the baths, swimming pool, and on the beach. Do not wear someone else's or tight shoes, and follow the rules of hygiene.

The disease is characterized by the following features:

  • The nail plate loses shine, changes color, becomes yellow-brown;
  • The nail becomes thicker; horny masses accumulate under it;
  • The nail plate exfoliates and collapses.

Excessive keratinization and thickening of the skin on the foot, callus is called hyperkeratosis (from Greek “hyper” - a lot, “keratosis” - the formation of keratin). It arises due to a number of reasons: it can be diseases that cause impaired blood circulation and trophism of tissues (diabetes, psoriasis, ichthyosis), as well as when wearing tight shoes, after injuries and operations. Promptly rendered qualified assistance can completely eliminate this phenomenon. Methods for eliminating hyperkeratosis have remained unchanged for several centuries. It is the application of softeners, then the mechanical removal of the hard horny layer with tools, and grinding. In "Люменис" the tools of European ergonomic technologies are used. It gives an excellent result. However, at home it is necessary to regularly care for the skin of the feet. The podiatrist in Kyiv will tell you how to do it correctly.
