Description
Emtrix is free from preservatives and fragrances. The ingredients are fully biodegradable.
Action
Emtrix increases hydration, gently smoothes the outer layers of the nail plate and by creating an antagonistic microenvironment for microorganisms and improving nail surface integrity helps to discourage growth of fungi and bacteria.
In a clinical study, most users saw improvement in nail appearance in only 2 weeks, and 92% after 8 weeks.*
*8 weeks clinical study, JCDSA 2011: Vol 1, No. 3.
Indications/Uses
Emtrix promotes healing of discoloured and deformed nails, cracked and brittle nails, resulting from fungal infection or psoriasis.
Emtrix improves the appearance of nails and keeps them in good condition with first signs normally being seen after 2-4 weeks of treatment.*
*8 weeks clinical study, JCDSA 2011: Vol 1, No.3.
Dosage/Direction for Use
Apply Emtrix once daily to affected nails, preferably in the evening just before bedtime. Hold the point of the tube onto the nail. Press lightly on the tube and spread out the solution with the point. Cover each nail with a thin layer of the solution. It is important that the solution is also applied under the free edge of any affected nails. After application, the nail should be allowed to dry for a few minutes.
Clinical signs of improvement may be seen after 2-4 weeks of treatment. Duration of treatment varies according to the initial severity of the condition, but in many cases 3-6 months treatment may be required to achieve satisfactory results. For optimal results, continue the treatment until a normal nail has grown out.
