FAQ's

 

Is Dr.’s REMEDY a nail polish and a medicine or do I still need to get a prescription for my fungus? 
Dr.’s Remedy is a cosmetic and can be used as an adjunct to a medication. As with any new beauty regimen, we recommend first consulting your doctor.

 

How long should I expect my manicure to last?
Dr.’s REMEDY wears similar to a commercial nail polish. With normal activity, polish should last between 5 to 7 days. A pedicure with Dr.’s REMEDY will last up to 1 month, but this is not recommended. Podiatrists advise their patients to remove or reapply toe nail polish after 7 to 10 days.

 

I bought a bottle of Dr.’s REMEDY last year, what’s the shelf life?
After you open your bottle of Dr.’s REMEDY for the first time, your polish will have a 2 year shelf life if it’s stored at room temperature. Never store bottles in the refrigerator or leave your polish in a hot car.

 

Can I use ‘regular’ nail polish over Dr.’s REMEDY Basic Base Coat and still get the benefits of the anti-fungal ingredients?
Dr.’s REMEDY has not been tested in conjunction with other polishes.
I have nail fungus on only one of my toe nails.

 

Can I use the same bottle of Dr.’s REMEDY nail polish for all of my toenails or will the fungus spread?
In most cases, the same polish can be used without risk of spreading the fungus. Our chemists advises us that nail fungus should die within the bottle and should not spread. However, we always advise you to consult your podiatrist in regards to your specific condition in order to determine the best course of treatment for your personal needs. 

 

Can you paint Dr.’s REMEDY directly on skin or a toenail that is growing back?
DR’s REMEDY can be used directly on the skin as well as aid with new nail growth. With a topical medication such as Penlac, Dr.’s REMEDY can be used on a ‘as needed’ basis. Should a patient with a nail condition chose to paint their nails for a vacation, wedding, etc, Dr.’s REMEDY should not perpetuate the condition. The patient can then resume using the medication after a few days. With lasers and Lamisil, Dr.’s REMEDY is a perfect adjunct to the regimen.

 

Do I really need a top coat and base coat while wearing Dr.’s REMEDY products? 
Some nails are more sensitive than others, it’s possible that without the application of a protective base coat, pigments from the polish can superficially stain the nail. While this is not always the case, the use of a base coat is highly recommended. Dr.’s REMEDY BASIC Basic Base Coat enriches your nails with good-for-you ingredients, starting your pedicure off on the right foot! Our unique Calming Clear Top Coat acts as a high gloss finish. It seals in the nail color, provides UV protection and increases the duration of the manicure and/or pedicure. We also have Total Two-In One which a base and top coat hybrid. 

 

Does Dr.’s REMEDY smell like normal nail polishes? 
Our polishes smell less potent than traditional polishes.

 

Is Dr.’s REMEDY an antifungal nail polish?
Dr.’s REMEDY is a cosmetic. Dr.’s REMEDY is not FDA approved and cannot make claims to cure fungus. Note, no over-the-counter cosmetic legally can make such claims. Dr.’s REMEDY is a ‘cleaner’ nail polish, doctor recommended, and patient testimonials say their nails are stronger and whiter after using Dr.’s REMEDY. Dr.’s REMEDY is a good preventative to avoiding discolored nails, and is a recommended as an adjunct to any medication.

 

I am a male, what Dr.’s REMEDY product should I use for a natural look to cover my nails? 
We suggest modest matte for men. This is a completely clear, matte polish. For those looking for a little bit of a shade (perhaps to cover any nail coloration) we suggest either LOYAL Linen, PROMISING Pink or PURITY Pink - depending upon skin tone.

 

Is Dr.’s REMEDY vegan and organic?
Dr.’s Remedy is a 100% vegan polish - not tested on animals. Dr.’s Remedy is also enriched with organic ingredients. 

 

What makes Dr.’s REMEDY Enriched Nail Polish unique from other nail polishes?
Dr.’s REMEDY is doctor-formulated, doctor-recommended and enriched with organic ingredients which work to maintain and promote optimal nail health. Dr.‘s REMEDY was the first nail polish to receive the Seal of Approval of the American Podiatric Medical Association. Dr.’s Remedy is also 8 free, including the controversial TPHP toxin.

 

Dr.’s REMEDY is an Enriched Nail Polish. What’s been added and what are the benefits? 
Dr.’s REMEDY has been enriched with a unique blend of organic ingredients: Tea Tree Oil, an essential oil obtained from the leaves of the Melaleuca alternifolia, is found to have antiseptic and antifungal activity. Garlic Bulb Extract contains Allicin, a powerful antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral agent that joins forces with Vitamin C to help kill harmful germs. Vitamin E promotes healthier skin and nails. Wheat Protein, a vegetable derived, high quality protein contains moisture binding capabilities and naturally increases shine. Biotin is a water-soluble B-vitamin. Biotin is known to support healthy hair, skin and nails. Biotin also supports energy production.

 

Who are the doctors who formulated Dr.’s REMEDY? 
Dr. Cirlincione and Dr. Spielfogel are Board Certified Podiatrists who understand the need for a healthier, more natural nail polish. When working with chemists, the doctors stressed the importance of adding naturally occurring antifungals as well as strengthening agents like vitamins and protein, because they know the needs of their patients and the direct effects of the harsh chemicals contained in many commercial nail polishes. (ie: formaldehyde is believed to yellow and weaken the nail)."
